Our seasoned developer client had exchanged contracts for a consented Purpose Built Student Accommodation scheme (PBSA) for a nominal consideration, with a long-stop completion. The developer utilised the 9mths between exchange and completion to improve the existing internal configuration through a Section 73 agreement, thus enabling an additional 27 beds. This uplift in the number of beds achieved an increase on the Residual Land Value of £1.5m, even before our client had completed on the acquisition.
The developer, who typically acquires half a dozen sites a year, needed to commit as little of his own funds as possible to enable completion, whilst ensuring he retains a healthy cashflow.
Facility Provided: We secured bridging finance; leveraged against the uplifted Residual Land Value for this purchase, rather than against the contract purchase price. Ultimately achieving a gross advance of 103% loan to contract purchase price / 94% net. Pricing was at 1% per month, with a 2% lender facility fee and no exit fee, over a 9 month term
