Development Finance


Mezzanine finance is secured by a second charge and used to add additional funds to the senior debt (first charge) facility. This is commonly put in place if a developer does not have sufficient cash resources to make the project work using senior debt alone. Mezzanine finance is another type of development finance used to give you more money than the “senior” lender can provide.

It’s useful for property developers because it facilitates significant finance deals, while placing the investment property itself as collateral.

How does Mezzanine finance work? 
Mezzanine finance is a hybrid of both debt and equity. With this type of funding the lender provides a second charge (subordinated) loan, plus the potential for equity should the loan extend beyond a certain point. In commercial property deals, mezzanine funding has a particular place because the property itself can be used as equity.
