Property Development

The senior brokers at PIA Financial Group are ideally placed to assist with your property development financing. Having worked as bankers within this highly specialised area, we are able to present your development proposal with confidence in order to obtain your requirements.

Many brokers believe that property development finance can be obtained with a simple application form, but in our experience this usually means that the finance provided will be expensive and not meet the requirements of funding. We pride ourselves on delivering a bespoke proposition to lenders on your behalf, which will show your development in the best possible light.

We achieve some of the best rates and terms in the market which has enabled us to consistently exceed our clients’ expectations of Loan to Value, Loan to Gross Development Value, rates and fees.

We are delighted to have helped many clients, from a simple conversion of a house into apartments, to new-build hotels and multi-phased developments of over 350 units. There is no development too large for the team at PIA Financial Group to assist you with.

We are happy to assist with the following types of development:

  • Residential developments
  • Commercial developments
  • Mixed-use development
  • Schemes / Single-build houses
  • Blocks of city-centre apartments (new-builds or refurbishments via permitted development rights)
  • Self-Build home projects
  • Property conversions
  • Commercial-to-residential conversions
  • Barn conversions

We can also arrange finance of land with or without planning permission.
