Land Bank Loans; the Sparrow Loans difference.

  • Are you thinking about the future potential of a site?

Developers and investors have their eye on DA approved sites on sale. If you have recently seen or committed to a great parcel of land with future potential, Sparrow Loans can help.

If you need to settle on your land fast, we can approve your loan within 2 business days and settle within two weeks.

You can use our land bank loans to borrow up to 65% of your development. If you need to cash out a portion of existing land, too, Sparrow Loans are ready to help.

  • Our flexible repayment options

Managing your cash flow has never been more accessible with our capitalised facilities. We can structure a flexible repayment option based on your investment strategy. For example, suppose you want to capitalise 100% or a portion of the interest costs as you plan to sell your land or roll it into a construction facility. In that case, we can accommodate this within the loan facility. With our land bank loan, you can lean on your property to get you through.

  • Choose your land bank loan term

Whether you need a land bank loan for one month or 12 months, we give you the flexibility to choose your loan term. Your company must be at least registered for GST to access our land bank property loans. You must also be domiciled in Australia with Australian directors. We lend against property located in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. We can consider property in metro locations up to 65% LVR and regional locations up to 60% LVR.

Land Bank Loans FAQs

See some land bank loan questions we get asked all the time by some of our clients.

What is a land bank loan?

A land bank loan is where a loan is secured by a specific type of security type – a non-income-producing block of land. Developers or property investors may purchase a block of land for future development purposes, hold and re-sell at a more opportune moment, or see through the Development Application process to sell it for a premium once approved but before construction.

What type of land will you consider?

Sparrow Loans can accept vacant land as security if it is DA Approved, it is held for investment purposes and has a strong exit strategy. Therefore, we prefer to deal with DA Approved land. In a typical scenario, the owner has recently achieved a DA Approval and may be seeking to cash out on the added value to the site compared to its original value at its non-DA Approved valuation. Alternatively, the owner may be looking to refinance their DA Approved site as it is not the right time to move into construction or sell the land.

Will you lend against rural land?

Unfortunately, no. We are only able to lend against regional or metro located properties.

What documentation do you need to assess a land bank loan?

We will require a copy of any previous valuation reports, a copy of the DA Approval, a schedule of settlement costs, a statement of position (Asset and Liability list) of the borrowing entity and directors, and any additional information that may be relevant to the scenario.

How quickly can I get my land bank loan?

You can generally get approval for your land bank loan within 48 hours.

Can we capitalise the interest into the loan?

Yes, this is preferred as it is unlikely that the land will generate any income to service the loan interest repayments during the loan. The interest is typically capitalised within the maximum allowable LVR. For example, our maximum LVR for land banks is 60% for regional land and 65% for metro land.
