What are bridging loans for a developer?

For many property developers, securing finance through a high street lender can be tough. The process of obtaining finance from a high street lender can be a long one. In addition, the majority of traditional lenders will only provide finance to developers with a proven track record of successful projects.

A bridging loan is a specialist, fast, short term financial solution that can be used to ‘bridge’ the gap in funding before additional permanent finance becomes available.

Bridging loans are well suited to property developers as they may provide the funding quickly which can minimise delays to their project.  Also, although some bridging loan lenders are reluctant to lend to inexperienced developers, there are some lenders who are prepared to provide finance to new developers.

Also, property developers benefit from the option to ’roll up’ interest with a bridging loan. This means that the interest of the loan can be repaid at the end of the term of finance, as opposed to making monthly interest payments.  The option to roll up interest allows developers to spend their money on the project and then repay the loan with the interest once the property has sold.

When to use a bridging loan

Bridging loans can be used to facilitate many different development projects including:

  • Extensions
  • Conversions
  • Structural amendments
  • Refurbishments

High street lenders typically do not provide finance for the purchase or development of an unmortgageable property.  A property is unmortgageable if:

  • The value of the property is below 40K
  • The property does not have a functioning bathroom or kitchen.

Bridging loans can be secured for unmortgageable properties. This ensures that developers do not miss out on attractive opportunities.

How to get a bridging loan for property development

If you are a developer and you require a bridging loan, you should speak to a finance specialist as they will recommend the appropriate finance for you and your particular set of circumstances.
