Development Finance

Stretched Senior

Stretched Senior Debt refers to a first charge development facility which provides a higher Loan to Cost or Loan to Value percentage than Senior debt can allow.  Property developers find this higher leverage lending helpful as it means they do not need to provide such a large percentage of funding themselves. This not only helps with cash flow, but also allows the opportunity to build more than one development project at a time. 

A senior stretch loan is quick, efficient and convenient, giving you access to more finance.
