LendInvest, the leading specialist property lender, has launched today the first LendInvest Broker Property Development Course in partnership with the NACFB.

This launch follows overwhelming demand among brokers for their own version of the popular LendInvest Property Development Academy, a non-profit course that equips aspiring developers with the skills they need to get schemes built on time and on budget.

Aimed at providing brokers with a better understanding of how to add more value to clients that require development finance, the courses outline in detail what it takes to make sure small-scale developments run smoothly.

The course includes real-life case studies, presentations and group exercises led by a range of property professionals, whilst also helping brokers build their own networks of relevant industry contacts.

Hosted in partnership with the NACFB, these courses are available exclusively to the association’s members, in effort to promote the benefit of education within the NACFB broker community.

Norman Chambers, Managing Director of the NACFB said:

“The NACFB is delighted to support its valued patron LendInvest with hosting a series of one day Broker Development Courses for members. I am confident these will be a great success and know that those who attend will benefit from the expert speaker presentations.”

Ian Thomas, pictured, Co-founder and Chief Investment Officer of LendInvest said:

“Our broker network has expressed an interest in our Academy courses for borrowers since the first one launched in Autumn 2016, so it was a logical step to build a course tailored specifically for brokers that provides them with the training they need to better support their clients.

“Being able to fully understand what their borrower is going through during their development project enables a broker to better anticipate and act on what it is their client needs from them. Armed with that knowledge, the broker can make a faster, more accurate decision when it comes to weighing up the client’s funding options.

“Response to both our Property Development Academies and Broker Property Development Courses has been brilliant, and we are excited to continue our rollout of the programme into 2018.“

The LendInvest Property Development Academy has recently received public support from three leading industry bodies, the Home Builders Federation, Homes for Scotland and the Centre for Entrepreneurs.

The first LendInvest Broker Property Development Course has taken place in London, with another due to run this autumn. A further two courses are planned for early 2018.
