strategy & vision

The property is located in the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley and was purchased by prospective borrower recently. It comprises 2 detached part single storey and part two storey former office buildings, together with private car parking. Planning permission has been granted to convert the buildings into residential (class 3) and the borrower intends to create up to 13 HMO units and split the properties into 3 distinct areas. (Planning reference: P17/0754).

RICS valuation of existing properties: £210,000
RICS view on GDV of completed units: £700,000

CrowdProperty has agreed to lend £347,000 (£147,000 on completion of loan agreement and £200,000 towards cost of works).

The length of the loan is a minimum of 6 months and a maximum 15 months. Interest and capital on this project can be repaid in stages as the loan is paid back by the borrower (in minimum tranches of £250,000). The interest on the repaid amount will fall away, but you will continue to earn interest on the outstanding balance.

exit strategy

The exit strategy is to refinance and hold the property

CrowdProperty Comments

This is a classic commercial to residential conversion project. The developer will be adding significant value to these buildings by converting them into three large apartments which will be used as Houses of Multiple Occupation to maximise the rental income and hence the commercial valuation. The developer intends to hold these high rental yield properties and will repay the crowd by refinancing them with a commercial mortgage. As the end Loan to Value will only by 49.5% there is plenty of equity to cover the capital and interest payment to the Crowd. We are delighted to give this project he CrowdProperty stamp of approval.
