Bridging loans are a short-term form of finance, usually secured against a property or asset.  If you are in a time crunch when in the process of buying a home, a bridging loan can be very useful form of finance.

This kind of borrowing can be useful when buying property in many different situations.

These might include:

  • Developers
  • Houses bought at auction
  • Houses which are not mortgageable
  • Breaking housing chains
  • Downsizing
  • Upsizing

Depending on whether the property you are buying is intended to house members of your family, your bridging loan will be regulated or unregulated. Bridging loans will look differently depending on your situation.

For example, if you are looking for a bridging loan to enable you to downsize to a retirement property, this will be different to an experienced developer looking for a bridging loan to continue construction on an ongoing project.

But in both of these different cases, bridging loans can be used to release funds when they are needed in order to ensure a smoother financial transition in a situation where other forms of lending would not fit the time frame. The short-term nature of bridging finance makes these situations viable.

Bridging loans can be especially useful in situations where other types of finance are not viable due to the nature of the property. In the case of properties bought at auction, the payment for this property must be made within 28 days. This is not enough time for a traditional mortgage to be arranged, but it enough time for a bridging loan to be sorted out.

In the case where a property does not meet the criteria to be considered mortgageable, then a bridging loan can instead be used to fund the purchase without the restrictions of mortgage requirements.

If you are intending to have family members living in this property, you will need a regulated bridging loan. If you are buying without intent for a family member to live in the property, such as part of a development or an investment property, then you can have an unregulated bridging loan.
