What is a Commercial Bridging Loan?

A commercial bridging loan is bridging finance for borrowers who wish to use the funds for commercial purposes. 

 

A bridging loan is classed as commercial if the property or land it is being used to purchase is more than 40% commercial.  If it’s a building with ground-floor retail units, for example, the retail units need to make up over 40% of the property’s total floor space.

 

Commercial bridging finance is offered on an interest only basis. Some lenders will allow you to pay it off monthly and settle the loan amount at the end of the term, while others will offer you a rolled-up interest option - where the monthly interest is compounded, added to the loan amount and paid at the end of the loan term.

Why is a commercial bridging loan different from a standard residential bridging loan?

Bridging loans for commercial purposes require a unique type of lender. There are two basic types: regulated and unregulated, and it's the latter that you will need.

 

Regulated Bridging loans are strictly for residential purposes, for example, for properties where the borrower lives or plans to live. Their oversight by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) provides the borrower with extra protection against bad advice and mis-selling.

 

Unregulated bridge loans are, however, not as risky as they sound. It is simply a term used for short-term financing for business investments. A bridging lender that is not regulated can be more flexible for a business borrower's needs.

 

Businesses need to be able to borrow on a bespoke and flexible basis. For example, an unregulated bridging loan allows you to borrow money based on the rental potential of a commercial property, instead of your income, which may be considerably less.
