"Coutts Real Estate business is driven by a sector-skilled team with in-depth experience of structuring debt solutions for both commercial and residential investment transactions. In addition to financing standing assets, we also finance a wide range of residential development projects across London and the Home Counties. Supported by an in-house chartered surveyor, the team has a passion for the built environment and prides itself on driving the best outcome for our clients."
The Coutts Commercial Real Estate team provides comprehensive banking services for clients investing in commercial and residential property. Finance facilities are available for each stage of the property process: from development finance, which includes senior debt with capitalised interest to investment finance, which includes term loans and amortising or interest-only facilities for lower-geared assets.
As with all of our commercial banking offering, a fully comprehensive banking service is available that includes deposits, transmission and online capabilities.
An in-depth insight into clients’ assets and wider circumstances is key to supporting every aspect of your commercial property requirements. Development funding is considered according to the pre-sale or pre-let agreements, covenant strength, location, your own circumstances and the wider market. Asset quality, covenant strength, location and asset management are key to determining investment finance.
When looking at residential development funding, our Commercial Real Estate team will undertake a detailed review of the property, the market and your own circumstances, developmental experience and objectives. Investment funding will be assessed in line with asset quality and diversity, management ability, tenant strength and sustainability of cash flow.
