Real estate finance

We take pride in the quality and speed of delivery of our advice, our innovative thinking and, most importantly, our commercial awareness.  Our aim is to achieve creative, practical and above all commercial financing solutions to get the deal done.

Our real estate finance lawyers act for, and provide advice on, all aspects of property finance for a range of different clients across the UK including banks and financial institutions and housing associations.


Our real estate finance legal team has a wealth of experience in dealing with the banking and finance sector. We advise banks and financial institutions and borrowers on:

  • acquisition and investment financing;
  • refinancing;
  • development and construction financing;
  • mezzanine financing;
  • preparation of certificates/reports on title; and
  • perfection of security.

In addition to our general real estate financing expertise we offer specialist services in the following areas:

  • Housing Association finance
  • Health Care finance

We work closely with other specialist teams across the firm, including:

  • employment;
  • licensing;
  • construction;
  • energy and projects;
  • healthcare; and
  • regulatory.

We believe that the draw down of funds on time, in any secured lending transaction, goes hand in hand with taking a commercial approach, providing concise advice, and fundamentally, highlighting problems as they arise. To achieve this, we provide solutions which are commercial and innovative.

We offer a fully transparent range of scale fees to our clients. By knowing the legal fees in advance you can present your client with a complete package of costs at the outset.
