strategy & vision

The proposed project is situated at 18 Warton Lane, Austrey, Atherstone, Warwickshire CV9 3EJ. Austrey is a small village with a population of 1500 residents and is well connected to M42/A42 Junction 11 approx 2 miles to the east. The towns of Nuneaton and Atherstone are both less than 8 miles away and have train stations which provide direct connections to London Euston in 1 hour 15 minutes.

The village provides a local primary school and public house which are both just a short 10-minute walk away from the site. The village is also close to further leisure and tourist attractions including Twycross Zoo and Drayton Manor theme park which are 2.3 miles and 9.7 miles away respectively.

The site currently comprises a three bedroom dwelling with a double garage. The borrower has since gained planning in order to renovate and extend this property as well as build a further 3 x 5 bedroom detached properties. Planning permission was granted by North Warwickshire Council and the application can be found using the reference number (PAP/2017/0375).

The development will be made up of four units which include:
The extension and renovation of the existing dwelling to create a 4 bedroom property
2 x 5 bedroom properties with integral garages
1 x 5 bedroom property with a detached double garage

The site is connected to Warton Lane by a joint private driveway

The current market value (RICS verified) is £425,000.

Estimated build costs for the project are £750,000. With the inclusion of sunken costs, cost of finance, professional fees and contingencies, total costs are estimated at £1,300,000. With a GDV of £1,815,000 estimated out turn profit is estimated at £515,000.

CrowdProperty has agreed to lend the borrower £900,000 across three phases for a maximum of 15 months. The first phase raise will be £400,000, with a further two raises of £250,000 each to be offered during the course of 2019. The borrower will receive a day 1 advance of £297,000 in order to clear the current debt on the property. This represents an initial Loan to Value of 69.9%. The initial works will be funded by the borrower's own equity. The estimated Loan to Value at exit to GDV will be 54.5% including rolled up interest.

The borrowers exit strategy is to sell the properties once he has completed the building works.

The 15 month loan term is a max term and the borrower can pay back the whole or part anytime between 6 and 15 months. As the development comprises 4 houses part repayment is expected as house sales will complete at different times.

As with all CrowdProperty's loans the site and property will be secured by way of a 1st charge registered with the Land Registry.

Targeted loan commencement date for this project is 31/01/2019.
