What is a Senior Stretch Loan?
A senior stretch loan is basically a senior loan with a mezzanine section included. Not only is it convenient and cost effective, it also means you don’t have to go through the trouble of entering complex inter-creditor agreements or double up on the paperwork. The senior loan is simply stretched to give you more financial muscle in order to do what you need to do.
- Funding up to 90% of costs plus roll up interest.
- Loans are blended funding via 80% senior facility plus a 10% mezzanine facility.
- Loans are typically available between £500k and £10 million, although larger loans can be considered.
- Loan terms range on average between 12 and 30 months.
Each application is assessed and negotiated on its individual merits. However, the following general criteria will apply:
- Residential developments: houses, flats, new builds, conversions and mixed-use.
- Projects located in England, Scotland and Wales in areas with strong demand.
- Projects must have planning in place.
- No restriction on the number of units.
- Loans 100% secured on the development property.
- Experienced developers / house builders.
- Must be a house builder with a demonstrable track record.
A senior stretch loan is quick, efficient and convenient because you are only dealing with one lender. They are also ideal for small businesses, particularly those that have substantial asset base but unpredictable cash flows or firms with a healthy cash flow but lower assets.
