Bridging Finance To Purchase Overseas Properties

Bridging loans

A bridging loan is a short-term loan that can get you the finance you need to purchase an overseas property. Bridging loans can temporarily ‘bridge’ the gap when there is a shortfall in funding or a cashflow issue.

You will need a clear exit strategy in order to secure a bridging loan from a lender. An exit strategy is the method you plan to use to repay the entire loan at the end of the term of finance. The exit plan you could execute is using the proceeds of the sale of your existing property to repay the loan.

If you want to avoid paying monthly interest on your loan, then you could opt to ‘roll-up’ the interest on a bridging loan to pay at the end of the term of finance. Bridging loan lenders often provide the choice to ‘roll-up’ interest, which could allow you to direct your loan to the purchase of an overseas property and not to service monthly interest payments. If you choose to ‘roll-up’ the interest on your bridging loan, you would repay the loan and interest upon execution of your exit plan.

Why use a bridging loan to purchase overseas properties

It is commonplace for the majority of buyers to approach a traditional lender such as a high street bank for a residential mortgage when looking to purchase an overseas property. However, this might not be the best method to access the funding you need.

Typically, traditional lenders will only provide a mortgage to purchase a property abroad if they have an established branch in the country you intend to move to. This could restrict your options in relation to moving abroad.

If you have found a property that you want to purchase overseas, then you might require finance quickly to avoid losing out to another buyer. It should be noted that traditional lenders often take several weeks or even months to process an application, this could result in you losing your desired property to another buyer.

Bridging loan lenders are used to helping clients with unique requirements, which means that factors such as foreign currency, complex income and overseas property are not an issue.

Also, bridging loan lenders’ applications are processed quickly.  We work with some lenders that can process an application and release the finance you need within 7 working days, depending on your set of circumstances.
