What is a bridging loan?

A bridging loan is a short-term financing solution commonly used to bridge the gap between the purchase of a new property and the sale of an existing one. It serves as a short term, temporary financial bridge, allowing individuals or businesses to secure funds quickly for property transactions.

Bridging loans are regularly used by landlords, homeowners and property investors to secure:

• Commercial acquisitions

• Residential property purchases

• To fund a property development or renovation project

• Finance an auction purchase

• Invest in Buy to Let opportunities

• Moving office/factory/warehouse

A bridging loan can make your important plans happen and become a reality.

How does a bridging loan work?

Bridging finance offers a solution where traditional finance isn’t immediately available and can assist in complex and challenging situations. The main principals of bridging finance are broken down below:

Short term finance

Bridging loans are a short-term finance solution, usually taken out for a period of 1 to 18 months. Longer terms can be agreed, depending on the borrower’s circumstances and lender’s requirements.

Secured against property

Bridging loans are often secured against property, either an existing property or the property being purchased.

Interest Only Payments

Borrowers typically make interest only payments during the loan term. The full amount is repaid at the end of the loan term.

However, some lenders offer the borrower flexibility and depending on the exit strategy, monthly interest and capital payments can be agreed or a lump sum payment of the whole amount at the end of the term.

Exit Strategy

Lenders usually require a clear ‘exit strategy’ – a plan outlining how the borrower intends to repay the loan. This is often through the sale of a property or through more traditional mortgage financing.

That said, not all lenders require a clear exit strategy for settling the loan from the outset and if this is the case you will normally be provided with a fixed term to pay back the loan, which is often a year.

Flexibility

Bridging loans offer flexibility in terms of repayment schedules and can be customised based on the borrowers needs and circumstances.
