For residential purchase we can provide bridging finance options and then provide mortgage solutions once the bridging loan is no longer required.

What is bridging finance?

Bridging finance is a specialist kind of short term loan designed solely for shorter term usage (1 to 18 months typically) to provide a temporary cash flow solution or ‘bridge’ before additional permanent finance becomes available.

The method for obtaining bridging finance is relatively straightforward compared to a typical mortgage application process. Like a traditional mortgage, a bridging loans is secured against your property. The bridging lender will require an independent property valuation and will carry out legal checks. Assuming everything is in order a legal charge will be place on the property (ies) in question.

With bridging a realistic and viable exit will be required by the lender. The key question for any bridging finance provider is how the loan will be repaid. The exit strategy is therefore a key requisite which will usually be sale of asset, or in the case of residential bridging might be replacing the bridge with a longer term mortgage.

How does bridging finance work?

Bridging finance is frequently utilised as an answer to a temporary cash flow problem. A common example of this type of situation is when a person wishes to buy a property but still needs to sell their existing home. A bridging loan can, in these circumstances, provide a solution by offering short-term funding before selling the property.

Finance may be offered in loan amounts ranging from £25,000 upwards, depending on your circumstances and which lender you approach.

Regulated bridging finance applies to properties where the property you are buying or selling is one you live in or intend to live in. Bridge lenders that provide this type of bridging are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). There are a smaller number of lenders who operate on this basis. Clifton Private Finance works with all regulated bridge lenders that offer competitive rates.

Non regulated bridging finance applies to properties that are investment related. There are many lenders who provide a service in this market depending on your requirements. Whether you are looking at light or heavy refurbishment, or where the property type of location is unusual, there will often be a funding solution.
