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
