Development Finance Report

Free Report: Top 5 Ways UK Property Developers can raise Development Finance from Private Investors

“Access to development capital is the lifeblood of any property developer. For some, it’s the biggest constraint on the growth of their business.”

Who this report is for

Developers, contractors, architects and other built environment professionals are the backbone of the property development industry. Without them, nothing would happen. It’s their skills and hard work which drive the building projects which the UK so badly needs. And yet very often, the major financial rewards are being made elsewhere – by large corporates, banks and funds.

This report is for you if you are a property developer and you want to increase the scale and number of the developments you are able to deliver, by accessing more capital through your existing contacts and connections

It is also for you if you are currently a built environment professional or intermediary, and you want to create long-term equity in the projects you are involved in, rather than just taking fees as a contractor or adviser.  For some people, this can be a truly life-changing transition, enabling them to build up long-term wealth rather than living from one job to the next.

The challenge of attracting development finance
Although debt is available from banks and alternative lenders, we find that many developers and other professionals are not aware of the options available to bridge the gap.

In many cases, our clients already have relationships with investors, and they just need help to approach them in the right way and formalise the arrangements. Other clients need guidance on how to raise awareness of their projects and attract new investors, without getting in trouble with regulators such as the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority.

Learn from the Top 5 structures used by developers
This report sets out 5 of the most popular structures used by developers to raise capital from private investors. It is distilled from our lawyers’ experience of guiding clients through the process of raising funds for over 20 years.
