The developer for this 250 unit new build scheme had gone over term on their current development facility thus required a sales bridge to sell the first phase and development funds to finish phases 2 and 3. Covid-19 had caused delays to the build and overseas buyers, who had already exchanged on units, had unilateral notices on these apartments. This drastically limited the number of lenders in the market who would consider lending on the development which had left the client unsuccessfully seeking funds for 12 months. In just 8 weeks from initial enquiry, Sirius were able to source a fund to structure the deal in a way that facilitated the developer to sell the complete units and financed the completion of the remainder. This enabled the borrower to preserve the relationship with the existing lender and to reach practical completion in order to execute the pre-sold units
