Our property development loans are available from £100,000 to £5,000,000, perfect for developers who need to fund small- to medium-sized schemes.

With lending available up to 95% Loan To Cost (LTC) or 75% Loan to Gross Development Value (LTGDV), we provide high leverage funding, enabling borrowers to maximise their loan and cash flow.

Catalyst’s development finance is available for residential and mixed-use schemes with up to 25 units.

This is true “ground up” development finance for experienced property developers and housebuilders.  If you have land with planning or are refurbishing a property, we have specially designed loan options for these circumstances. We also offer development exit finance for developers with an existing scheme who are looking to extend their sales period, or refinance their existing development facility onto a short term bridge.
