Real Estate Finance

Banking and real estate experience

The turmoil in the banking industry over the last seven years and the various reforms and controls introduced to try to prevent any repetition of such a crisis have made lending – and thus borrowing – a much more complex process. Even experienced borrowers can now struggle with some of the current requirements of lenders, including their use of complex analytical tools, amazingly detailed informational requirements, regulatory and “know your customer” (KYC) needs, and voluminous and exhaustive documentation procedures.

DJWA have developed considerable specialist real estate lending knowledge, with expertise in all aspects of the process (including development finance). We provide a full specialist advisory service to advise, guide, and manage all aspects of this process, from introductions to debt providers through to timely availability of funding, and also throughout the life of the loan until successful repayment.

Support and guidance through the entire process

Financing commercial properties through to large-scale developments is a complicated process with various debt, legal, accounting, and taxation structures that can all have significant impacts on the potential viability and ultimate profitability of each scheme. Our support covers all sizes, locations, and sectors of real estate funding, from simple secured loans to highly structured specialist debt structures.

DJWA will guide you throughout the process, starting with development of a clear underlying business case with robust financial modeling, adding value to the proposition, so ultimately securing the most appropriate funding, be that short term bridging finance, commercial facilities on longer terms, through to complex structures that include senior and mezzanine facilities.
