Purchase Overseas Properties

Bridging finance secured on property or land assets in the UK can be used to quickly purchase property abroad. Emerging markets outside the UK can be the ideal location to purchase property, and a bridging loan can be used to raise the deposit, balance, or full purchase price.

Overseas property bridging example:

You paid a large deposit for a property abroad and are in danger of losing the deposit due to difficulties raising the balance needed to complete the purchase using finance from the country you are purchasing in. There is no time to arrange local finance for the purchase of property, and you do not wish to be tied into a new mortgage in the UK. We can arrange a bridging loan secured on your UK property to ‘bridge’ the time between the purchase date and maturity date of the endowment.

Case study

Bridging & commercial funding used for holiday let purchase.

The client was looking to borrow funds to assist in the purchase of her new property. The purchase property was a farmhouse with three holiday lets on the same title. The client’s current residence was a typical residential property worth slightly less than the new residence but with no outstanding mortgage. The client’s current residential property was used as security for the bridging loan, and we arranged a commercial mortgage on the new property to cover the difference in value between the current property and the new one. Once the client’s residential property sold, they repaid the bridging loan that enabled them to purchase their new home with the proceeds, and the commercial mortgage ran successfully alongside the client’s new holiday rental business.
