What is Bridging Finance?
It is a flexible short-term finance solution generally secured against land or property.
Bridging finance has evolved over the years, filling the gaps presented by the funding restrictions and liquidity shortfalls that the high street banks find themselves with. Bridging finance has attracted a vast number of quality lenders offering fantastically competitive rates and leverage.
The key components to a successful bridging loan are:
- Suitable asset
- Acceptable use of funds
- Defined exit strategy
Some popular reasons to use a bridging loan:
- Property auction purchases
- Acquiring unmortgageable properties
- Carrying out light & heavy property refurbishment
- Preventing a chain break
- Downsizing, when a traditional mortgage is unavailable
- Capital raising for personal or business purposes
- When speed of completion is key
This is a fundamental requirement when you are considering bridging finance. It is imperative that a clear and concise exit strategy is planned, to avoid potential complications in the future. Exit strategies can range from property sale, personal funds or residential/commercial refinance.
If your planned exit strategy is to refinance onto a longer term mortgage, our Specialist and Commercial Mortgage team are available to discuss these requirements.
