The product news follows shortly after the lender announced its latest development exit loan earlier this month, which is aimed at completed residential projects, offering up to 80% LTV, no minimum term, with rates from 0.85%.

Kim Parker, Head of Sales at Hope Capital, commented:

“Our finish & exit product is another fantastic product for borrowers who are looking for a solution to keep their investment plans moving.”

Quite often a borrower will find they have taken out a development or refurbishment loan, feeling confident they will complete the necessary works by a certain date, however when the project stalls, often owing to material shortages being encountered, they panic knowing they must repay existing finances and complete any outstanding works.

Our finish & exit loan relives any stress by providing the additional time needed to pay capital back, complete any works and sell the property(s) so the borrower doesn’t lose a significant amount of money.”

Hope Capital has launched its latest product in conjunction with Costcap and is very confident this will provide a much-needed solution for a significant number of borrowers who find themselves in this predicament moving forward.

John Dineen, Founding Director at Costcap, commented: 

“We’re extremely proud to be working in partnership with Hope Capital on this product launch.

Having an “in-house” quantity surveyor will mean that projects can be assessed quicker, with clearer outcomes for borrowers from the get-go.

We are excited to get started and further strengthen the fantastic relationship we already have.”
