Avamore completes bridging loan in two days for site purchase




Avamore Capital has closed a £271,471 bridging loan in just two days after formal terms were accepted.

The borrower had bid for a site with “excellent development potential” at auction and was under pressure to exchange on his purchase.

The site has prior planning to be demolished and replaced with a two-storey building of three self-contained flats. 

Avamore had originally issued terms for a development loan, but with further reports, documentation and checks needed to complete this, it decided to re-issue bridging terms so that the borrower could receive the funds within the required timeframe. 

The lender took comfort in the strength of the scheme, the borrower’s previous experience on similar projects, and the expected value of the completed property.

After terms were accepted, the deal was underwritten and completed in two days.

The transaction was issued for a six-month term at 64.6% LTV and will then be refinanced onto a pre-agreed development facility with Avamore.

“Avamore [was] extremely helpful from the outset,” said broker Ying Tan, founder and chief executive at Dynamo.

“We’ve been impressed by [its] willingness to adapt to changing circumstances and ability to move quickly to meet our client’s timescale. 

“These are certainly qualities that, as a broker, we value highly and we look forward to working with Avamore on future projects.”

Adam Butler, relationship manager at Avamore Capital (pictured above), commented: “It’s the first time we have worked with the borrower and broker and so it was more important than ever that we maintained clear lines of communication. 

“They were transparent about the borrower’s situation throughout, which meant that we were ready to react to whatever he needed to ensure that the deal didn’t fall through. 

“It was great teamwork and I am really looking forward to refinancing the project onto a development facility as we had originally planned. 

“Things are rarely straightforward and so I’m pleased that we were able to get the best outcome for the customer, despite some unexpected challenges.”
