Almost three-quarters of brokers operating in the specialist lending space think the “race for space” is not over, according to a poll undertaken by TAB.
The short-term property finance lender polled the views of brokers in the industry at an event to mark the opening of their new HQ in Hertfordshire.
Bridging lender TAB is to invite brokers to use its new office at The Grain Yard, in Borehamwood, as a hot desk base. TAB is offering brokers a private room to work with access to all the lender’s amenities including the breakout space and unlimited tea and coffee. The hot desks facility has been set up for brokers who are currently working from home or are near London.
TAB has secured a funding line with a top global private equity firm and lending platform that funds residential and mixed use bridging loans and development finance. The news follows shortly after TAB wrote their largest ever loan, a £9.25m bridging loan on a hotel development in Poole, bringing the total loans completed since inception to almost £100m.
TAB held its first post pandemic in person event as a thank you to our brokers and partners who have supported the business. We had the pleasure to host a dinner and drinks on the roof terrace of Harvey Nichols. It was great to see some old faces as well as some newer faces after such a long time away.
TAB in conjunction with the CEO and founder of Real Estate Finance Consultancy (REFC) and Crown City Holdings (CCH), Mr Nir Yedid, recently completed a £9.25m facility for the refinancing of a hotel in The Quay, Poole. The site is owned by the client and operated by Thistle Hotels. The hotel is in a prime position in Poole close to the Sunseekers boatyard and overlooking the harbour which has seen, and continues to see, significant redevelopment.
A planning application has been submitted for the demolition of the existing hotel and construction of a large mixed use regeneration scheme consisting of more than 200 residential units above commercial space and a hotel with a range of amenities to include a ground floor bar and a rooftop bar/restaurant.
