Century Capital have demonstrated continued resilience by overcoming the current market challenges and completed three deals in one week. The three latest transactions, that took place last week, are testament to the agility of Century Capital and the strength of their broker relationships in these unprecedented times.
Paul Munford, CEO, Century Capital, said:
“We have been impressed with how responsive the broker network has been to current market conditions. It demonstrates that our introducers understand the scale of the present dislocation and take that into account when considering which lenders to recommend. It is certainly not business as usual at Century Capital, but as an agile and flexible business, we have adapted to the challenges presented and successfully overcome them.”
The first deal was to provide a facility for the renovation works to a substantial residential property in Belgravia. The advanced facility of £500,000 was in addition to an existing £7m loan to a foreign national. The renovation works will take the GDV of the property to over £30million.
The second transaction was for a £700,000 facility secured against a detached residential development project in North London. The second charge loan was provided to fund final planning costs for a development site in Kings Cross with a GDV totalling £40million.
The final deal was to finance a second charge loan against a £2million pied-à-terre in Chelsea. The £400,000 second charge facility was taken against the Chelsea town house to invest in JV opportunities in the Buy to Let sector.
Luke Navin, Head of Lending, Century Capital said:
“Century are currently focusing on a more select number of deals in order to maintain our efficient transaction timescales. Our broker network has been highly professional and collaborative and relationships with our key introducers have strengthened as we continue to deliver our world-class customer service to our clients in these challenging times.”
