What is Strata?

Strata is a stand alone business that has been created for the sole purpose of providing mezzanine funding to experienced developers with appropriate residential development schemes in the South of the UK Back to Top

What is the decision making process?

All new development opportunities are reviewed by the Board. Detailed discussions are carried out between Directors of the company and the developer to ensure the experience of the borrower and the key aspects of the project meet Strata's strict criteria. If appropriate, we then visit the site and analyse the financial viability of the scheme, at which stage indicative heads of terms can be issued. We then collate all detailed information required in order for the usual due diligence to be completed and a formal approval of a facility to be granted by the Strata Board. Lawyers are then instructed and we liaise closely with the borrower, the senior debt lender and all professionals to ensure matters proceed expediently to completion of the transaction. Back to Top
