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
- 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
