  1. Hi Newbie, I'd be happy to have a conversation about options as well if you have not sorted yet. Short answer is that it will depend on the size of the project. There are many lenders still doing development lending, but it depends on your experience, and also the loan amount required. To get best pricing, you typically need to have loans over £1M, and have similar experience before. If a smaller loan, it tends to be some of the bridge lenders, which cost a bit more. More than happy to have a chat. Kind regards, Kevin www.garnetfinance.co.uk
  2. Hi Chris, I can definitely assist with running your development appraisals and debt funding. I know the debt market very well and have a few equity players that can assist for good deals. Where are you looking for project geographically? Kevin

  4. Hi all, I'm new to the forum, but have been listening to the Property Hub podcast for a couple of years now whilst running. I have been doing development funding for a challenger bank/P2P for the past 7 years, and have recently left to start my own commercial / residential development firm. If you are considering a development project or need some advice on bridge loans etc, I'm happy to assist through this forum if helpful. I'm a bit of a deal junky and love all things property. Kevin, Garnet Finance
