John Arnold's New Build Project

John Arnold's New Build Project

"Peter and his team were always very approachable, courteous and professional, they always did what they said they would do and the process ran very smoothly. I will be looking for a new project in the future and my first call for finance will be to Peter and his team."

Who's it for?

Property development finance is for experienced property developers who will sell on to others for profitable gain, the properties they construct. Self-build mortgages are aimed at individuals building or converting property that they will subsequently occupy themselves. For information on our Self Build mortgages please click here.

How we work

We provide residential property development loans to experienced individuals and housebuilders with knowledge of the market. We’ll consider projects throughout England and Wales, but are particularly interested in sites in London, the South East and East Anglia. Our customers like the fact that we understand the detail of their business and we provide ongoing advice, guidance and support throughout the complete development process.

We don’t just lend and walk away, we are dedicated to the project and we visit the site to ensure we support you as the project progresses. We offer assistance wherever possible to enable you to overcome potential issues, such as unavoidable cost and time overruns.

For us, it’s not just about finance. It’s about lending all of our years of experience to help you achieve a successful outcome.

Many of our customers stay with us and ask for support on subsequent projects. It becomes a partnership. We hope you too will value our dedicated approach and the energy we put into each and every development.
