Legal expertise for all your development finance requirement

Securing finance for your land & development deal

Securing finance for a site acquisition or for the construction phase of a development is often a vital component of any land/development deal.

We have considerable experience of acting for both funders and housebuilders developers looking to obtain finance. We know what the requirements of the funders will be in relation to site acquisitions, planning agreements and development agreements and we can use our holistic overview of the development cycle to advise developers and funders alike.

We have acted for a number of funders and have undertaken a detailed review of the developer’s solicitor’s due diligence and transactional documents to ensure that the relevant land constitutes sufficient security for the loan, as well as drafting the Facility Agreement and other finance documents.
