Land with planning loans

TAB’s land with planning loans are loans that are often used to purchase or refinance the land that has planning permission to build or develop both residential and commercial properties. TAB lends directly to borrowers and through intermediaries. We offer loans up to 60% of the gross development valuation of your project, including the cost of borrowing. There are no exit fees and no early repayment fees either. 

Our experience means we can be flexible with our valuations and consider projects that more traditional lenders would not. We pride ourselves on trust and transparency.

TAB loans are unregulated. Any property used as security is at risk of repossession if you do not keep up with your payments.
