Blackfinch is a fully funded provider of innovative short-term bridging and development financing solutions. As an independent company, we offer an efficient and flexible approach to lending, standing in contrast to the more rigid criteria restricting institutions.

We consider each loan on a case-by-case basis, taking a pragmatic approach to provide clients with cash quickly and with more certainty. This enables our borrowers to complete on transactions and developments with more ease, and keep the focus on their property.

Dixie Dean

Blackfinch Property have provided a successful UK hotelier with a development loan for a proposed hotel in Liverpool.

This development, the Dixie Dean Hotel, named after one of Liverpool’s treasured football icons, will be constructed from old office buildings, built in the traditional gothic red-brick style popular across Liverpool. The developer is known to Blackfinch and has a good track record in the hotel industry. Refurbishment to a hotel will take 11 months, and will offer restaurant, bar and spa facilities, alongside an events space for weddings.

The restaurant is situated in a former Grade II Roman Catholic Church dating back to 1788, which was converted into a bar and restaurant in 2005. The restaurant provides an eclectic Cuban-Latin atmosphere, offering samba afternoon teas and Sunday service gospel brunches.The borrower is well known to Blackfinch Property who have completed a number of loans with the developers this year.
