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 qualify 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 £3 million although larger loans can be considered by referral.

Six steps from enquiry
to completion

  • Over many years of arranging bridging finance, the Roma team is continually refining the process to make it hassle-free and responsive. Above all to make it quick and slick, because property deadlines are tight deadlines.

    It takes a team who love to lend 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 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.
