Joint Venture Funding for Property Development Funding

Typically property development finance lenders will only fund senior debt up to 80% of costs. If a property developer requires extra capital there are several options available.

  1. Provide additional security. This could be in the form of other properties that the developer owns;
  2. Mezzanine finance. This is secondary debt that may be in the form of a second mortgage; or
  3. Joint venture partners or private equity partners. Partners that invest in the project and share the risk and profits of the development.

Property development project joint venture funding where a property developer (or in some cases a landowner) seeks partners to invest in their property development project. The advantages of joint venture financing for the developer is that the project risk is shared among the partners. However, so are any potential the profits.

Oak Laurel’s brokers are selective when it comes to choosing appropriate joint venture partners. We have partners that bring capability, experience and ideas. Compatibility, aligned interests, and complementary experience and skills, are also highly important when matching joint venture partners.

We consider the following criteria:

  • Financial metrics of the proposal
  • Reputation, track record and expertise of the proponent
  • Fair and reasonable allocation of risk and rewards
  • Level of demand from existing funds or individual investors for the opportunity
  • An investment structure that optimises risk and returns for our investors

We can help you find a joint venture partner for a range of different types of property developments including:

  • Housing estates;
  • High density residential property developments;
  • Land subdivisions;
  • Industrial property developments; and
  • Commercial property developments.
Property development joint ventures can work well for landowners with sites that have excellent development potential who wish to develop their land but don’t have the expertise or capital to do so. In these cases it is a partnership between the landowner and an experienced developer. In most cases the landowner will provide the land, and the developer provides the expertise, management and funds (excluding land cost) for the project.
Oak Laurel brokers have contacts that include high net worth individuals & families, public and private companies, and listed and unlisted property trusts looking for the right opportunity to partner a successful property development. Options may be in the form of direct equity (Equity Partner – no or limited property development expertise and management) into a development project or through a joint venture partnership where skills sets are complementary or a partnership between a landowner and property developer.
