Finance for Land Development

We advise landowners and banking institutions in respect of lending for re-finance, first charges where land is being purchased or when there is a change of ownership and bridging loans. Finance or refinancing is regularly required for land development projects of all sizes.

At Farnfields, we are able to assist property owners and developers in securing finance.  Finance is required for various reasons such as buying sites, changing banks, for renovations and building projects, for bridging loans or simply following a change of ownership in title deeds.  Our local knowledge of commercial buildings and local market conditions allows us to deal with your finance requirements in a common-sense approach.

We have strong professional relationships with all the main lenders of such finance (such as AMC, NatWest, Handelsbanken, Lloyds, Barclays, HSBC etc.) and with the local relationship managers of such lenders.

In particular, we help property owners to meet the requirements of the lenders including such matters as:

  • Providing reports and certificates on titles
  • Dealing with guarantee documents
  • Assisting on independent legal advice
  • Applying and reporting on property searches
  • Dealing with title indemnity insurances
  • Considering access and easement requirements
  • Separating titles at the Land Registry
  • Arranging the removal of the previous lending from title deeds
  • Dealing with registrations at the Land Registry and Companies house

At times, lenders use their own panel solicitors and where needed we have a track record of working closely with them.

At Farnfields, we can assist in complex and portfolio refinancing as well as private loan arrangements.  As well as assisting the lenders, we also work closely with local and regional commercial property agents and valuers who act on behalf of the banking institutions.   We also value the input of accountants, tax advisors, and other professionals to ensure any financial transaction is structured according to your needs.
