Real Estate Finance

Our Real Estate Finance team represents banks and funds in relation to development funding, single asset and portfolio investment lending as well as bridging finance. We receive instructions from a wide range of clients including UK and overseas banks, challenger banks and other lenders.

The Real Estate Finance team works closely with our planning, tax and construction colleagues and we have strong links with foreign firms able to assist in cases where the borrower or another party is based outside the United Kingdom. In addition, working closely with our Business Restructuring team who routinely act for insolvency professionals, lenders, boards of directors and debtors, we can ably assist in distressed real estate situations.
