The reasons for bridging finance have increased over recent years. Traditionally bridging loans were used to bridge the gap between purchasing a property before the sale of an existing property. This is still the main purpose, however, there are now a number of reasons as to why short term bridging finance is beneficial.

Lenders often have minimum terms of one month but some bridging loans can be used for as little as one day, enabling you to complete the simultaneous purchase and sale of properties over a period of a few days.

Bridging loan rates are mainly based on the loan to value. The rates differ with all lenders. Our experienced brokers will help you to find the lowest cost option based on the security on offer, the loan amount required, whether the loan is a first or second charge etc. Use our bridging finance calculator to work out your costs!

What is a Bridging Loan?

A Bridging Loan could be described as relatively short term “interest only” loans, usually set up for a maximum term of 12 months in length and normally do not require monthly payments. There are no exit penalties if repaid within the agreed term.

Interest rates are normally only liable for the amount of time that the finance is used. When a loan is arranged for 12 months but repaid after 3 months and 6 days, interest is usually charged and repaid on the loan for the 3 month and 6 day period and not for the full 12 months.

The reason that applicants are refused traditional finance or where traditional finance is not suitable are varied and the most common bridging loan examples would be:

  • because the applicant is older than the new acceptable age limits for mortgages
  • the applicant may be asset rich but cash poor i.e. not enough income proof to pass the required affordability calculations needed to obtain a mortgage
  • the applicant may have poor credit which is not acceptable for mortgage finance
  • the property may be classed as not standard security for a mortgage i.e. the property could be without a kitchen or bathroom or generally in need of much modernisation making it not habitable. In which case an incomplete property loan is the ideal choice for you.
  • the seller may only accept offers from buyers who are chain free such as cash buyers or buyers with bridging finance
  • the finance could be required for a development opportunity
  • it may be that the finance is needed for additional borrowing such as a 2nd charge
  • the funds may be needed urgently or for a specific requirement which are not allowable in the world of mortgage finance, such as borrowing for an urgent business need
  • the money may be just for a flexible or short term requirement
  • the borrower wants minimal fuss
  • the borrower wants to purchase a new property but the deposit is not yet liquid and tied up in another property yet to be sold
