Joint Ventures Explained: Property Development Finance


Development finance is constantly evolving with a variety of specialist lenders entering the market. This provides a unique opportunity for developers across the country. Whether you are an experienced developer or are looking at financing your first development project, there will be options available to construct the right package for you.

If you are an inexperienced property developer or if you are lacking the financial means to access a more conventional finance solution, you may want to consider a joint venture.

What is a joint venture in property development?

Put simply, a joint venture is an arrangement between partners to achieve a common set of property goals, or objectives. When used effectively, a joint venture can provide significant value for all involved.

Joint ventures can be classed into two separate categories:

  • Experienced developers who require 100% funding for their development project
  • First time developers with the cash resources to contribute but need to partner with an experienced developer to satisfy the general criteria of the lender

Given their unique and complex nature, joint venture funding is often agreed on a case-by-case basis. At Finance 4 Business, our specialist consultants can support you with joint venture property development deals. Without the worry of your funding, you can concentrate on developing your project.

What are the benefits to joint venture funding?

There is a range of benefits to joint venture property development including:

  • Receive access to new markets and distribution networks
  • Sharing of risks and costs
  • Access to greater resources such as finance or specialised knowledge
  • Expert support
