What is Development Stretch Funding?

Development stretch funding provides developers with a means to spread their capital across a greater number of projects without a requirement for a separate mezzanine funder. Funds are secured by a first charge on the subject site with a high loan to value ratio.

Why Use Development Stretch Funding?

High street senior lenders often restrict their lending ratio to 60% of costs (i.e. site plus build costs) whereas Calmez can provide a facility of up to £3,000,000+ at a ratio of up to 90% of costs.  Stretch funding can aid developer’s cash flow and enable more projects, or larger projects, to be taken on.

Calmez can tailor bespoke lending with a blended rate that will reduce costs whilst still providing the facility necessary to support the development.
