UTB also agreed to provide equity release from the existing schemes — under separate sales period funding facilities — which formed the borrower’s contribution towards the acquisition of two further buildings.
The new projects were then secured with acquisition finance and the first of the projects — which will create 10 mews houses within the existing building — is now underway.
Under permitted development rights, the second project is expected to deliver a further 47 apartments and is currently in detailed design.
