Oblix Capital, the specialist property lender, has completed on another permitted development (PD) bridge in Dudley, West Midlands for £980k.

The borrower has used the funds to purchase a commercial site, converting it from an office to 64 residential dwellings under PD rights. Despite some complexities and extremely tight timeframes, the Oblix risk team took extra care and due-diligence, ensuring all parties were comfortable with the project’s strategy.

With a development facility already in place to exit the bridge, Oblix offered the borrower a 70%LTV at a rate of 0.85% pm.

This latest completion is the second PD bridge Oblix have funded in quick succession – highlighting the current scope and appetite for developers to tap into the PDR opportunities that exist in the UK’s secondary towns and cities.

Sales director at Oblix Capital, Andy Reid commented: “First and foremost, we are extremely pleased that we were able to deliver funding that met both borrower objectives and time pressures. Our expert risk team here at Oblix immediately understood the fundamentals and complexities of the deal and acted in a way that put the borrower first. This is just another example of the service that both brokers and borrowers have come to appreciate from us.”
