Carbon Assists Chadwell Heath Residential Project Securing £15m Development to Investment Loan in a Boost to UK Housebuilding

A refinancing project has been carried out for a residential property development in East London, facilitated by a customised £15 million development-to-investment loan from Secure Trust Bank (STB) Real Estate Finance (REF).

Located in Chadwell Heath, an increasingly popular area for new property development projects, the eight-story building is set to feature 55 high-quality residential units ranging from one to three bedrooms. This residential complex is expected to be especially attractive to small and growing families, offering proximity to a landscaped park and nature area.

In addition to the residential units, the apartment block includes a commercial unit and is slated for practical completion in January 2025. This ground-up initiative comes as positive news for the housing sector, addressing the ongoing demand for more housing in the UK, particularly in London where a shortage of affordable homes persists.

Stuart Bradney, Head of Investment Finance at Carbon Funding Consultants helped facilitate the five-year loan working alongside Matthew-Blaine Young, Head of Organisation at STB, Lawyers Dan Keys, of Clyde & Co, and Liz Roberts, of gunnercooke. A fantastic team effort as part of a longstanding relationship. 

Stuart Bradney had the following to say: “We’re delighted to have sealed the deal with STB. Our established relationship with Matthew, and ultimately STB overall, was testament to completing the transaction in a timely fashion.

“A complex transaction like this requires the right team around it to achieve a successful outcome. As a result, STB’s previous experience in overcoming the challenges affiliated with property development investment, alongside the professional input of the deal’s lawyers and surveyors, was crucial to finalising the agreement.

“Conducting a weekly touch point meeting with Matthew and the team was pivotal to ensuring fluent and clear communication throughout the process. To us, STB is a trusted bank. We have been working with the real estate finance team and Matthew for five years now, and they have a tailored approach that really sets them apart from the competition.”

Matthew-Blaine Young, head of origination at Secure Trust Bank Real Estate Finance, said: “Having worked with Stuart and Carbon Funding Consultants in the past, it was clear that our partnership for this deal would be a productive and rewarding one. As specialists in residential property development finance and investment, we were adamant that we could provide a bespoke deal to befit the client’s needs. We are proud to have played a role in providing new housing at a time whereby it is most needed.”

An incredible team effort all round. Well done to all and we look forward to working with you soon.
