Here are some of our most frequently asked questions
As of today, we have 30 lenders on Brickflow, with ambitious plans to grow this number. We handpicked the initial lenders to represent the entire market, covering a range of pricing and leverage, as well as all jurisdictions and loan sizes.
We use unique algorithms, bespoke to each lender. This means we provide the exact same results as the lender would offer you directly.
Each lender has its own set of rules, so your results will show different loan amounts.
The main criteria are:
The lender caps the loan as a percentage of the above factors and delivers a final combined amount.
Loans are ranked in order, from largest to smallest. When the loan amounts are the same, the system ranks them in price order, with the cheapest loan first.
Once you’ve selected a loan to apply for, we will make a pre-application for finance approval (pre-app). To do this we will need more information, namely; your development experience, development appraisal and a property schedule.
From selecting a lender to getting ‘pre-app’ approval, takes as little as a 2-3 days, providing you give us the information quickly. Once you have pre-app approval, there is a fee of £ 995 payable to complete the full application.
From paying the application fee to full credit approval, normally takes 2-3 days. We have managed to do it in 24 hours.
From credit approval to loan completion is mainly dependent on your professional team. If your QS and lawyer work quickly and collaboratively with the lenders professional team, you can complete 3-4 weeks after.
The industry standard to complete a development loan is close to 6 months. With good borrower co-operation Brickflow can do it in 5 weeks from start to finish.
