Our development loans are designed for experienced developers, with a proven track record. We take a relationship based-approach, working to understand your ambitions and helping you succeed over the long term.

Whether you’re looking to fund new builds, carry out a residential or alternative residential conversion, undertake a refurbishment or embark on a commercial development project, we can help.

Build to rent?

If you’re planning on keeping your properties once the development is complete, our Specialised Residential Investment, Commercial Investment and portfolio buy-to-let teams could support you to do so. By refinancing onto a longer-term finance option with Hodge, you could save diligence and finance costs, as well as benefit from the security already being in place.
