When looking for development finance it is important to identify the type of project being planned by the developer in order to access the correct funding product. Types of works can include:
New builds nearly always require development finance loans. Once the project is completed, developers may use development exit finance as a more cost-effective solution, but this cannot be done before the project is watertight.
For this type of project, refurbishment finance is typically the correct type of loan to use, however if the project is larger than the norm, development finance may be a better alternative.
A refurbishment loan, which is a type of bridging finance, is generally used for property renovations. It can be used for various improvements including, installing a new roof, general structural changes, building an extension, refurbishment, and decoration.
Property investors or developers may want to buy property which needs development or completion work still doing and are unable to get funding from their bank. This is a typical scenario when a bridging loan is a suitable alternative.
Development finance loans are typically paid in one of the following three ways:
The total loan amount is paid in full, using the profits, when the project is complete, and the properties have been sold.
This usually happens when the developer wants to keep the development for either personal use or for rental purposes.
This type of short term loan is often used to fund a new development project before the current project is sold. It can also be used to give developers a bit of breathing space to complete minor works and find buyers.

Joint venture development finance works similarly to conventional development finance. However, no deposit needs to be paid and rates are typically higher.
Mezzanine finance, aka mezzanine funding, effectively enables property developers to 'top up' their first-charge development finance facility to access extra funding.
No Personal Guarantee (PG) development loans are effectively a form of unsecured funding for major property development and construction projects.
Whether your goal is to maximise the value of a property you plan to sell or to boost rental income long-term, a refurbishment finance loan could be just the thing.
Senior debt development finance is the primary source of funds in the form of a first-charge loan. It is considered a lower-risk facility on the part of the lender.
Stretched development finance can be the perfect choice for investors and developers looking to stretch their own equity as far as possible with borrowing for up to 90%.
'Light refurbishment' is used for cosmetic upgrades and minor improvements. 'Heavy refurbishment' is used to raise funds for structural improvements.
