Key figures:

  • £24 million London hotel refinance and development
  • 60% loan to value (LTV)
  • 5% fixed for 5 years
  • 10-year term


The property:

A client returned to us recently looking to refinance a significant amount from his £24million hotel development in West London.


The client:

He came from a family of property developers with a portfolio of various properties and businesses in the UK. The family have worked with Enness on several projects since 2013.


What were they looking for?

He was looking to gain a cheaper term product than his current bank was able to offer.


Why was it difficult?

As the hotel was a new development and had only recently opened its doors to guests, it had a very little trading history. This would make banks sceptical of the client’s repayment ability. Equally, the property developer client had accrued some adverse credit in the past couple of years due to the fluctuating economic landscape in the UK.


What was the process?

We approached a lender that the client had not previously considered. This lender not only offered the most attractive rates that we could find but also gave the potential for an ongoing business relationship, guaranteeing excellent terms on the client’s future investments.


The solution:

We negotiated a capital raise of 60% loan to value (LTV), or £14million, which gave huge faculty for the property developer’s future plans. This was secured a rate of 5% fixed for 5 years over a 10-year term.
