What is a Bridging Loan?
Bridging Loans are a short-term facility, and like a mortgage are secured on property or land. They are generally used to provide a temporary cash injection.
What are the advantages?
Speed and convenience are two of the main advantages of short-term funding: bridging finance is much faster and easier to arrange than a conventional mortgage and can provide rapid funding, with a more flexible application process and less rigid lending criteria.
What are Bridging Loans used for?
As the name suggests, bridging loans are generally used to bridge a gap between two transactions. For example, a client may wish to purchase a buy to let property at auction. In this case, a bridging loan would be used to complete the purchase and would then be paid off when the borrower refinances onto a conventional mortgage.
Bridging finance serves a key role due to the fact that high street and private banks often take weeks or months to process a mortgage, which is awkward when the need is time-critical. These lenders may even refuse to offer a mortgage if the property is in need of building work.
There are many reasons why people may use a bridging loan. Some examples are:
- Property development.
- Property purchase.
- Property refurbishment.
- Deposit for another property.
- Pay off a tax bill.
- Purchase of a property overseas.
- Extend property portfolio.
