A Bridging loan is a short term loan, secured against property or land and is used to "bridge" the gap, until longer term finance is arranged or the security is sold. The key to a successful bridging loan application is a credible exit strategy.

Bridging loans can be arranged for any legal purpose and are typically used in the following scenarios:

  • Auction purchases
  • Secure a property quickly
  • To break a chain
  • Refurbishment (light and heavy)
  • Purchase uninhabitable properties
  • Where a short lease property cannot be funded in a conventional way
  • Capital raising
  • Development funding
  • Land purchase pre planning
  • Gifted transactions
  • To cover cash flow needs
  • Conversions and title splits
  • Site acquisition
  • Planning applications

We work closely with our lending partners to provide you with fast, flexible bridging solutions tailored to suit your needs.

We offer Regulated and Non-Regulated Bridging loans:

  • Regulated Bridging loans are secured on a property you are living in or intend to live in
  • Non-Regulated Bridging loans are useful for corporate entities or properties you are not going to live in
