Stretched Senior Debt

Although 85% to 90% finance is more widely available, in certain circumstances up to 100% residential development finance can be provided for the construction of houses and apartments across England and Wales. This is provided as senior debt or as stretched senior debt.  Senior debt is bank finance.  Stretched senior debt is bank finance plus mezzanine finance which replaces some of the developer’s equity.  Stretched senior debt is provided by a single lender.

Mezzanine Funding

If stretched senior debt is not available mezzanine finance is a useful tool for a property developer or investor that has some equity (cash) but not enough to satisfy a bank lender. Mezzanine funding is used to top up the borrower's equity. The following is an example of how mezzanine finance can be used where a loan of £1,000,000 is required but where the borrower only has £150,000 of readily available cash to put towards the project:

£650,000 - bank finance or senior debt - secured by a first mortgage

£200,000 - mezzanine finance - secured by a second mortgage

£150,000 - borrower's own equity

£1,000,000 - Total Project Cost
