Real Estate Finance

Whether you’re a lender or a borrower, we can promise a solution-focused, pragmatic and commercial approach

We act for high street and private banks as well as specialist charity and responsible lenders and charitable grant funders.

On the borrower side, our clients include developers and investors, corporates, funds, charities, not for profits, trusts and high net worth individuals. We regularly handle the financing of developments as well as commercial and residential portfolios, social housing, care homes, schools and sporting facilities.

We also have a detailed understanding of the funding and structural needs of our charity and not-for-profit clients. We also advise the country’s leading lenders to the charity and not-for-profit sector. Like our clients Charity Bank and Triodos, we’re a B Corp, so we understand what it means to be values-driven.

How we help

We combine the experience of our real estate, construction and planning teams with our banking expertise, supported by corporate, tax, charity and trust specialists to provide a cohesive team that works proactively and cost effectively to meet often tight timescales.
