It is vital that you find the right vehicle through which to undertake your investment journey and utilise existing assets to the full. Often, this means bespoke finance will be better suited to your needs than an off the shelf package.
In this case, we were approach by a client who had built 19 flats with development finance, which they were planning to rent out. To maximise the valuation of the building, they had created long leases for each of the flats. The ownership of each of the flats was a subsidiary Ltd company of the freehold company which had developed the flats.
This case proved to be complex due to the client's portfolio size of over 40 properties, which significantly limited the number of lenders we could approach. Moreover, due to Covid, the client's development completion was delayed and they had to take three extensions (with fees and interest) from their existing develepment finance lender. Finally, the client had some negative media online regarding the letting of another property he owned, which limited the potential lenders even more.
