strategy & vision

This is phase 2 of a multi phase raise totaling £2,800,000 to provide construction costs for the development of 10 new residential units in Hinton St George Somerset. The loan was completed in Mid 2018 and an initial advance of £455,000 was submitted to the borrower to cover design fees and initial construction costs. However after aborted protracted negotiations with a 3rd party contractor the borrower moved to employ Project/Site manager directly allowing him to commence works in September 2019.

CrowdProperty Comments

The borrower has commenced on site and is now out of the ground. Progress in the 1st month of construction has been good despite the weather and the site is active. The village is well connected to a number of nearby towns and the new development when completed will provide much needed housing for the village
