Mezzanine finance to get your property development over the line

Keep your property development project moving with short term financial assistance in the form of flexible mezzanine finance.

All made possible by the power of the crowd.

What is mezzanine finance?

Mezzanine finance is effectively a type of business loan that helps a property developer in a range of different scenarios. Normally, this is to overcome a short term problem where you need extra capital fast to continue funding your project.

Mezzanine loans are usually paid back in one lump sum, usually from the revenue generated from the sale of completed development.

Why is mezzanine finance helpful?

In property development you can be faced with a number of scenarios where you need finance quickly, but your circumstances may mean that you don’t qualify as a credible investment vehicle for a traditional bank.

Alternative finance is ideal for those who need cash quickly but don’t want to have to jump through hoops or pay extortionate fees and interest rates to get it.

The benefits of mezzanine finance

We know that the UK needs properties and there are people wanting to develop them. So let us be the link that brings all this together and introduces practical property development funding to property developers.

All made possible by the power of the crowd.

Equity as security

Banks may be hesitant to give access to finance for a development that requires a lot of work. We counteract this by using equity as a form of security if the loan can’t be repaid.

Simple repayments

We factor your interest payments into the balance of the loan, leaving you with a simple and manageable lump sum figure and a repayment date that is easier to aim for.

Easy to restructure

If you are having trouble securing a mortgage in the short term, mezzanine finance can help keep your plans moving. This debt can then easily be restructured when you eventually secure other finance.

Controlled interest

If there’s a problem and payment terms are missed, interest can often be deferred due to the existing equity stake, which means you don’t have to worry about spiralling interest costs.

How much can I borrow?

When using UOWN as your mezzanine finance provider, you will typically be able to secure a loan-to-value of between 65-80% of the property’s value.

A number of factors will dictate the amount we can lend you, including your experience as a developer, the size of the deposit you can contribute, and the  location of the property in question and its attractiveness to the market.
