Buy-to-Let Bridging Loans

Some people looking to gain a buy to let property may consider a bridging loan to be an excellent option depending on their circumstances.

The housing market can move quickly – especially for aspiring landlords who are looking to invest in a property in order to rent it out.

In this case, they might use bridging finance in order to complete the purchase of the property, and also use the short term loan to undertake light refurbishment or heavy refurbishment on the property, depending on what is required.

These will usually be a second charge loan, and most people are looking to rent this out on a commercial basis, and potentially employing an agency to do this.

Buy to let bridging loans are specifically useful in certain situations. For example, if someone has found a bargain property at auction they can use a bridging loan to buy, do-up and put on the rental market. Since buy-to-let mortgages take much longer to arrange than the 28 days allowed by auction properties for purchase, a short term finance can bridge this gap easily. Once they have acquired the property and managed to any glaring issues with it, they can apply for a buy-to-let mortgage which will pay off the bridging loan.

This also applies to situations where an ideal investment property has been found which might not be considered to be mortgageable.

With the buy to let mortgages, the exit strategy is fairly clear. Once the bridging loan has been taken out and the necessary work on the property is carried out, the individual can take out a buy-to-let mortgage. This can then be used to pay off the bridging loan, and in many cases the payments on the mortgage can be covered by the rental property.
