TAB has completed a £5,050,000 1st charge commercial bridging finance loan against Spurgeon’s College, an education facility active since 1923. The property is 5.95 acres and comprises a large Victorian building, chapel, library and principal's lodge.
The client required the loan to refinance existing debt and to pursue a mixed educational and residential planning permission to include a new teaching wing and 72 flats. The client intends to redeem the loan by selling the land for development once planning permission has been granted.
TAB's security for this loan, coupled with the borrower's track record and clear exit strategy, made this an attractive opportunity for private investors. That, along with the loan being on TAB's tracker rate, meant investors felt their return on investment was secure despite market volatility.Karen Delany, Head of Investor Relations
