In property finance, there is usually a lot at stake. As a result, the regulators and taxation implications make it a complex activity with volumes of red tape for both lenders and borrowers to overcome before taking action. It’s also a battlefield for tough negotiation.

Our team advises a number of retail and investment banks, investment firms and private lenders to fund property development opportunities around Melbourne and Victoria. Specifically, we prepare loan facility agreements and complex security documentation, managed investment schemes, intercreditor arrangements between prime, mezzanine and equity investors, construction tripartites and step-in deeds.

On the purchasing side, we help commercial investors, including superannuation funds, from Australia and overseas protect their interests. Whether they are setting up a syndicate or simply getting involved in an agreement, our Property Finance team ensures that our clients’ best interests are protected by conducting due diligence on their behalf, ensuring they are avoiding unnecessary taxes, reviewing complex agreements and negotiating on their behalf.

We have specific expertise in financing construction projects and the purchase of aged care facilities, retirement villages and hospitality providers. The Madgwicks team can pull together a multidisciplinary team to best work with your project and has extensive experience working with banks and financial institutions, specialist financiers, private lenders, property trusts, superannuation funds, family groups and investors.

Building close working relationships with our clients means we develop an understanding of their interests and strive to remove the frustrations associated with complex property transactions.

The stakes are high and negotiations can create or kill the ability to lend or borrow. You want a partner on your team who understands the property industry, but can also bring in expertise from every angle. We’ll ensure you meet regulatory requirements, minimise your tax cost and reduce exposure to unnecessary financial risks. Contact us today to learn how Madgwicks can help.
