Competitive joint venture development finance with LDN Finance

At LDN Finance, we recognise that one of the most important facets of a successful joint venture is finding a suitable match for both the developer and the investor. There are two common joint structures that we can facilitate for our clients:

  1. 100% Joint Venture Development Funding
    The investor funds all of the development costs, including acquisition fees, professional fees and construction costs. Typically, the developer will need to pay for the valuation and legals to purchase.
  2. Pure Equity Investment Development Finance
    The investor funds 10-30% of the total development costs, with the remainder sourced through senior debt at 70-95% of Loan to Costs.

Let LDN Finance guide you through the hardest area of development finance

Due to the number of variables involved and the higher level of risk for all parties, at LDN Finance we work with clients that find obtaining joint venture development finance an uphill task. Our highly-experienced development finance brokers guide our clients through the three key criteria needed to make a development project of interest to prospective joint venture partners:

  1. Who
    Experienced developers are preferred by investors. However, if the developer does not have experience, our brokers can facilitate a Quantity Surveyor, Project Manager or Building Contractor as a partner to satisfy the investor’s criteria.
  2. What
    Investors will want to see a certain level of return on the equity they deploy. Projects which have a 30% Gross Return on Costs, 20% Net Return on Costs are acceptable in general. It is essential that the build costs and sales values are reasonable and can be evidenced.
  3. Where
    Preferred development locations for investors include London, the Home Counties, Bristol, Bath and Cambridge. However, high-quality applications will be considered across the UK.

Our happy clients

LDN Finance were on the ball, helpful, supportive and nice to deal with. They were brilliant at back channelling with both lender and lawyers. We had tricky development and bridging finance and a short time frame. I would recommend them.
