Are you helping transform a former school into family homes?

Last month we met Jonathan Jay, director of Birchmead Homes Limited, at the former Abbey School in Gloucestershire. A former retail banker, Jonathan turned his hand to property development 15 years ago and is currently part-way through converting 19 homes in the idyllic market town of Tewkesbury.

The local community has welcomed the project as the building, which overlooks the magnificent Tewkesbury Abbey, had become an eyesore. The project has even been featured in the local press, for example the Gloucestershire Echo.

Jonathan has borrowed more than  £2 million from 21,000 Funding Circle investors since July 2014 to develop the school building, and already has 70 potential buyers.

In this short video you’ll meet Jonathan, and have an understanding of how your lending is helping to build homes across the UK.

Property development loans were available between April 2014 and April 2017. If you work in the property industry and are looking for finance, we may still be able to help you with an unsecured loan up to £350,000 with a personal guarantee, or a secured loan up to £1 million.
