About Property Investor Hunting Licence

Since the credit crunch, ‘hunting licence’ finance facilities have been withdrawn. Assetz Capital reintroduces this facility with our Property Investor Hunting Licence, available to businesses wanting to trade, develop and invest in property. Existing property security is pledged by the investor against which fast drawings may be requested as required for fast purchase transactions where ‘cash is king’. First charge preferable, but second charge considered.

    • First or second charge security taken over acceptable freehold or long leasehold properties in mainland UK

    • Deed of priority required from existing lender on second charge security
    • Interest charged on a daily basis, subject to minimum loan term (specific to each loan) and payable monthly or, for short term transactions and with our prior agreement, on newly acquired property exit date
    • As above, retained/advanced interest preferred – such that we can pay interest to our lenders monthly - however, we will consider allowing interest to be capitalised until property sale. A 3 month interest buffer will be required and may be added to the loan

    • Details of a viable exit will be required and in some cases we may request evidence of this
    • The borrower is responsible for all professional fees and an undertaking/cover for legal and other professional costs will be required
    • Title Insurance may be a requirement on loans where they fit the relevant criteria and the fee for this will be included in the legal cost
