Bridging Loan or Mortgage

Clifton private finance

We specialize in arranging financial solutions for residential and commercial property transactions

Typically, those looking to complete a property transaction will approach a traditional lender for a mortgage.

The issue is that securing any type of property finance from a traditional lender, such as a high street bank, can take up to several weeks or even months.  This can cause delays and may lead to losing out on attractive opportunities.

If you require fast short term finance for a property transaction then a bridging loan may be the best course of action.

Bridging Loan or Mortgage

What is a bridging loan?

Bridging loans are a type of temporary, short term borrowing, which can be secured on a property. They can allow you to borrow equivalent amounts to a mortgage, but can normally be accessed potentially within 5 to 7 working days.

When to use a bridging loan?

Unlike a mortgage, which can take a long time to secure, bridging loans are suited to situations where time is of the essence.

It is extremely competitive in todays’ housing market and therefore it is more important than ever to act quickly.

A bridging loan may be a viable option for the following:

Flexibility

Where mortgages require a regular payment of interest, bridging loans have the option to ‘roll up’ the interest.  This allows the borrower to repay the entire loan and interest at the end of the term of finance, which enables them to avoid monthly interest payments. 

Exit plan

Bridging loan lenders will only agree to provide a bridging loan if there is a clear exit plan in place. An exit plan is the method to repay the loan. For example this could be the sale of a property or refinancing a property.

No early repayment charges

With a mortgage from a traditional lender, a borrower will incur an early repayment charge in the event that the mortgage is repaid too quickly.

If finance is only required for a short period of time, early repayment charges can be avoided with a bridging loan. Bridging loans are designed for short terms of finance, usually between 1 and 36 months. This allows the borrower the freedom to repay the loan as quickly as they like.

How to get a bridging loan

If 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.
