Advantages of Joint Venture Funding

The obvious key advantage in JV funding is that a developer need not have any, or much, equity to put into their opportunity. Depending upon the lender, they may not even have to provide a PG.  Whilst profit will be split between developer and lender, this funding solution can mean that a developer can take advantage of an opportunity that may otherwise have slipped away.

Developers still must pay for costs up to acquisition, for example achieving planning consent, valuation, etc, but these can be usually recovered from the loan facility.  This project is a great example of how a development team and JV lender have partnered to enable the construction of a residential development that is sure to attract a strong interest from buyers.
