Got a question? We have answers.
Developer exit lending, commonly called a development exit loan is a short term finance option that enables a property developer to refinance, usually at a lower rate than their initial development finance facility. Development projects quality for developer exit funding when they are wind and watertight. This funding allows developers to release equity and also save on interest payments due to a lower rate.
GDV stands for Gross development Value. It is an estimate of the open market value or rental value a property development is likely to have on completion. It is determined on the basis of current and recent similar transactions.
Roma considers development finance up to £2 million although larger loans can be considered by referral.
Six steps from enquiry
Over many years of arranging bridging finance, the Roma team has refined the process to make it hassle-free and responsive. Above all to make it quick, because property deadlines are tight deadlines.
It takes lending less ordinary to fast-track cases, twin-track the legals and the underwriting… do whatever it takes to drive the sale forward.
Yet no matter how rapidly we’re working, we always meet the borrower, take the trouble to understand what makes each case different, and keep everyone informed at every stage.
Need to complete within 48 hours? We can run stages 2 – 5 simultaneously, and may even release funds to our solicitor before the due diligence process has been completed.
1. Initial enquiry
Call us on 0161 817 7480, email or complete the enquiry form and your loan is on its way.
2. Agreement in principle
The AIP accelerates the process by telling you exactly which documents we need before we can underwrite your loan, also providing Open Banking instructions.
3. Valuation and borrower meeting
We’ll get a third party valuation arranged ASAP, and we never lend until we’ve met the borrower and understood the case.
4. Confirm terms
After we’ve met the borrower and underwritten the case, we will confirm the loan terms.
5. Instruct solicitors
Once terms are accepted, we will instruct our solicitor to send legal papers required for completion to your solicitor.
Funds are released and we might also release funds to your solicitor before the due diligence process has been completed.
