House Building

Unlocking development finance, increasing housing output

The LDS Sales Guarantee, provided pre-construction, ensures the purchase of all unsold homes on a development site and releases a 10% cash deposit on exchange. This removes sales risk, improving lenders’ credit profile, whilst also reducing developers’ upfront equity requirement. The unique combination of increased deal leverage and reduced deal risk is a powerful catalyst to new housing delivery across England and Wales.
