Strategy & Vision for the Development

The site is situated to the rear of 31, Birling Road, Tunbridge Wells TN2 5LY. Access is via an adjacent public road - Highgrove. The land is situated in a privately owned residential area about 1 mile south of Tunbridge Wells town centre.

Planning has been granted to build a 2 bedroom 2 reception room detached bungalow under planning ref. 17/03473. The accommodation will provide 1217sf of accommodation together with garden and driveway.

The borrowers are purchasing the site for £175,000. The RICS valuation states a value of £250,000.

Once built the property is expected to be worth £550,000 - RICS verified.

CrowdProperty have agreed to lend them £300,000 in two phases.

£122,000 towards a purchase price of £175,000

£178,000 phase 2 will be released in stages as verified by our Independent monitoring surveyor.

This represents a LTV of 70% reducing to 61% at completion of the works.

The borrowers will be 31BR Ltd part of the JVIP Group of companies, a family business run by Richard and Peter Dabner.
