Here at Goldcrest, we’ve prided ourselves on having consistently provided funding for property development for many years.  Even during the difficult period of the Credit Crunch, we continued to support hardworking developers to keep on building.

We have funded many development schemes, from one-off houses, numerous flats/apartments, to large developments of up to 50 houses.  We’ve provided funding in all corners of the country from Cornwall to Kent, Pembroke to Anglesey, and Cumbria to Northumberland, and everywhere in between.

If you or your client has a great development in mind, but it needs finance to take it through to completion, then Goldcrest could be your ideal funder.


Contact us now to see how we can help you build your future.

Update published on December 19, 2016

We have recently received an upsurge and completed on several transactions for applicants who are trying to secure the purchase of an additional property and are concerned by the increased taxation cost they may incur post 1st April 2016.

From buy-to-let, buying a holiday home, or even a University property for the children. Why you and your clients should be concerned about new stamp duty.

From 1st April 2016 under current proposed legislation, individuals or companies purchasing additional residential properties in England, Wales or Northern Ireland are to be hit with an extra 3 per cent stamp duty bill.

For example, anyone buying a £200,000 second home or buy to let before April pays stamp duty of £1,500.

This is based on paying zero per cent on the first £125,000 of the property value and 2 per cent on the portion between £125,001 and £250,000.

But from April, landlords will have to pay 3 per cent for the first £125,000 and 5 per cent instead of 2 per cent on the amount between £125,001 and £250,000.

This gives them a total bill of £7,500.


We can assist with the funding of any potential acquisitions of these properties within a week to avoid any delays on completions beyond April 1st 2016 caused valuations, or other funders.

Contact us now to discuss any enquiries you may have and we can bridge the purchase without the requirement for a valuation.

We are fortunate to have built some long lasting relationships with our client and  introducer base over the last 20 years in business.

Both clients and introducers value honest, rapid decision making, and delivery against promises.

We believe ourselves to be unrivalled in each of those respects, and this is borne out through repeat business in both Property and Trade finance. 

We look forward to hearing from YOU.

Aldi growth impacts new Trade customer

Goldcrest has recently assisted a homewares supplier in fulfilling a growing order book from
Aldi stores. Purchase orders from Aldi of up to £2.5m are expected over the
next twelve months, substantially increasing the size of their business.
Goldcrest assisted in buying goods directly from the supplier, thus enabling
the Aldi purchase orders to be fulfilled. Without Goldcrest’s assistance the
orders could not have been accepted by Goldcrest’s customer, impacting upon
their relationship with Aldi and significantly reducing their ability to grow
and make profit. A good result all round.

During September, we completed the initial funding for the purchase price on a substantial JV deal for a development of 36 dwellings (mix of houses and apartments) in a Cheshire village.

The deal totals £4.465m including construction finance and was completed following our internal due diligence procedures, meetings with the clients and a site visit, but without the requirement for a valuation.

Update published on October 15, 2014


Along with the highest summer temperatures to date Goldcrest have enjoyed a record breaking summer with July and August proving to be our most successful summer months  in trading history.   

The number of actual enquiries converted into completed deals has been phenomenal which we presume gives rise to the continued increase in confidence in the recovery of the UK economy.

Enquiries for both Trade and Property finance continue to flow as we remain focused to provide our bespoke lending services to assist British businesses to nurture and develop.

We look forward to hearing from you to see if we can be of assistance.
