A Development Finance Loan is a loan to undertake a construction project. Unlike a bridging loan where the Loan to Value (LTV) is calculated on the current value of the security when the loan is made, for a DFL the LTV (LTGDV) is calculated against the future value, known as the Gross Development Value (GDV), of the security once the project is complete.
