Cass report: residential deals drive sharp rise in development lending

Cass Lending report 2018

Cass UK property lending report for 2017 shows 13% year-on-year rise in development lending to £8.7bn.

The respected survey, which was previously produced by De Montfort University, showed that lenders provided a total of £8.7bn of development loans in 2017, up 13% on the previous year.

At the end of last year, 26 lenders provided terms for fully pre-let commercial development, up from 20 at the same point the year before.
