Leicester PBSA Scheme 

University of Leicester campus

Case Overview

This 135 bed PBSA scheme offered students contemporary accommodation, with a mix of studio's and cluster apartments, within walking distance of De Montford University and in the heart of Leicester city centre.  


The client, a prolific PBSA developer, was looking to secure a stretch senior debt facility in order to free up equity for another scheme.  MontpelierPF secured a £5.9m stretch senior facility against a GDV of £8.5m (68% LTGDV) and at 78% LTC.  

Montpelier Private Finance has a deep understanding of the UK & Ireland student accommodation market, and works with a wide range of funding partners.  Contact us here for more information.
