Bridging Loans for Mortgages

In the property market, a bridging loan can be used in multiple ways – and one of these ways it can be used is to buy a house while waiting on a mortgage.

Bridging loans can be used to speed up the buying process of a property – mortgages can take quite a while to go through, and if the nature of your property is time-sensitive (eg if it was bought at auction) then you might want to consider short term finance instead. A bridging loan can be used to bridge this gap, enabling the buyer to purchase their new property without the waiting period necessary for a traditional mortgage. 

A bridging loan could also be very useful to solve one of the most common irritations in the housing market – the housing chain. This is when a series of properties are being bought and sold, but a delay on one property causes delays throughout the whole chain. By using a bridging loan, the delay on the stalling property can be solved, enabling the housing chain to be broken. 

When examining which is better for you it is worth considering how important speed is to your property interests. For example, mortgages can be slow to process, especially during peak season so if time is of the essence in your case, then you might want to consider a bridging loan. 

However, if time is less of an issue for you when approaching buying, you will probably get a more competitive interest rate from a mortgage, so this might be a better route to go down. Also, not all mortgages are very long term - there are some with a minimum term of five years, so for someone looking for a bit more flexibility, this could be a good option. 

There are some properties which cannot be mortgaged due to not meeting certain standards - in this instance, a bridging loan can be the ideal loan. Also, bridging loans have less limitations regarding what they can be used for than mortgages do, which is a plus for someone looking for a quick refurbishment loan rather than money to buy a property.
