We have provided a bridge loan for the acquisition of a site just north of Nottingham City Centre. The site has consent for 210 student bedrooms alongside welfare and amenity spaces including a landscaped courtyard.

The Loan included a VAT Tranche to assist our borrower in covering VAT costs associated with the purchase price as some land titles were opted to tax.

Nottingham has two popular universities and a student population of more than 70,000 students. The borrower has a deep understanding of the Nottingham student accommodation market, where they already have a strong footprint.
