Propifi is very excited about working with known developers on delivering social and affordable housing to the most vulnerable in our nation.
Propifi will provide acquisition funding for the developers site purchases, see the project through detailed planning and the achievement of the building warrant at which point one of the four development funding companies we work with will redeem Propifi's loan. We will only fund projects where the site already benefits from outline planning permission as a minimum. The developer will have discussed the specific elements of their application for detailed permission and building regulations with the planning officers before agreeing a purchase price. Once their offer is accepted, they will submit their application in the knowledge that much of the uncertainty has been eliminated in the pre planning discussions. The planning committee, who are responsible for deciding the outcome of the application, tend to favour social housing projects over speculative ones.
This allows Propifi to deploy capital in this sector on a closed bridge basis. (certainty of exit) whilst playing our part in trying to close the massive void in this section of the housing industry.
