Strategy & Vision for the Development

The development involves the demolition of an existing bungalow and detached garage, followed by the construction of a new detached property of approx. 3,600sqft with high end finishes together with a detached double garage.

The design of the property has been prepared with consideration to local architecture, the landscape and site conditions, it is ideally located for respected local schooling, Farnham is less than 5 min drive as is the station for travel to Waterloo in just over an hour.

As anticipated planning permission was granted on 06/02/2015, You can see the planning details here: http://waverweb.waverley.gov.uk/live/wbc/pwl.nsf/%28RefNoLu%29/WA20142347?OpenDocument

This first Phase is a loan of £275,000, which will be used to pay off the outstanding mortgage on the current property and to cover the planning and consultant fees.

At this point CrowdProperty will be able to take a first charge on the existing property as security on behalf of all the lenders. With a value of £650,000 this will be a 42.3% loan to value so plenty of security for the lenders.

This Phase One loan will be a for period of 18 months, which will be long enough for the demolition of the existing property, construction of the new build and sale.

The Phase Two loan will be for the sum of £575,000 for a loan term of 12 months, which will be used for the construction costs of building the new property.

The funds will be released at appropriate stages throughout the build, based upon sign off by a quantity surveyor employed on behalf of CrowdProperty.

The combination of Phase One loan and Phase Two loans will be a total of £850,000, which will be secured with a first charge against the new build property.

CrowdProperty Comments

This is exactly the type of project we like to back on CrowdProperty. Very profitable and being run by a highly experienced property developer.

Now that Planning permission has been granted we believe this will be a very successful project and anticipate that Phase one will be filled very quickly.
