Bridging Loans For Care Home Fees
Moving into a care home can be an emotional and stressful experience, especially if you have to make the move unexpectedly without having all of the necessary financial arrangements in place.
Often, elderly care is only affordable through the sale of a home. Perhaps you find yourself facing the prospect of moving into a care home and being forced to sell family property to pay for it.
In many cases, you may need to pay a deposit and upfront costs of up to £10,000 to secure a place in a care home of your choice. Until funds from the sale of a home are available, ongoing care home fees may also be out of reach.
Head of Bridging
Bridging loans can help smooth the transition and help you to pay your care home fees in the short term.
We've helped many of our clients to raise funds for the care of an elderly family member, while waiting for a property to sell.
How a bridging loan can be the solution when a loved one goes into a care home
Typically, a bridging loan can be agreed upon within a week. You can raise enough to quickly secure a care home placement, pay the immediate care home fees, and not worry about the ongoing care expenses.
Unlike a personal loan, bridging loans are secured by property, not income, and you can repay the bridging loan after the sale of the property.
The benefits of a bridging loan to secure a care home place
- Bridging loans can be arranged very quickly, so you could have the funds in your bank account within weeks.
- You won't have to deal with the difficulty of moving into a care home at the same time as having to sell a house.
- You will have time to find the right estate agent to sell your property, do some renovation or decoration if needed, and ensure you sell it for its true market value.
- The loan can be taken out for up to 12 months and is paid back from the proceeds when you sell the property
- There are no early exit fees - so if you sell the property after 3 months you only pay interest for 3 months.
How to apply for a bridge loan on behalf of a loved one who is going into care
If you find yourself in a situation where a loved one is incapacitated, and you have power of attorney, you can still apply for a bridging loan secured against their property, to raise funds for their care home fees in the short term.
