Industrial to residential conversion
Bircroft were asked to source funding for one of the early industrial to residential PD consents. The lenders and the valuers needing convincing that a tired Industrial unit with very little light could be converted into saleable apartments.
Re-financing existing debt
Our client (an experienced asset manager) was faced with a difficult situation with their existing funder where falling values (post credit-crunch) alongside the mis-selling of hedging products, had led to a fractured relationship between borrower and lender. The leverage requirement was high for a market with negative sentiment at the time of funding.
