JLL Residential


The Art of The Possible

We are banking and finance specialists with property expertise who find the best funding solutions to enable residential developments to proceed.

We have advised on funding for residential projects with a gross development value in excess of £2 billion during the past two years, assisting borrowers, lenders and investors to structure deals that are best suited to their requirements and appetite for risk.

For developers and investors we look to maximise returns for their equity. Our in-depth knowledge of lenders’ requirements and market conditions means we can link them to capital providers in funding transactions that suit both sides.

Our capabilities include complex structuring across the capital stack – preferred equity; mezzanine, junior and senior loans - and in bringing innovative funding solutions to our clients.

JLL’s funding team’s areas of expertise include:

• Development finance
• PRS funding
• Joint ventures
• Forward funding
• Equity raising
• Debt
