What is Bridging Finance?


A bridging loan is a short term fix loan which allows you to purchase the property or raise money on an asset where standard forms of finance are not available. Here are some examples of where bridging finance is used:

Chain Break - A bridging loan can also help when there is a gap in the property chain between buying and selling properties. It may be necessary to purchase a property to avoid missing out but there is not the time available to sell your current property to raise the required funding.

Buying at Auction – Upon winning the bid at an auction you generally have to complete within 28 days, so you may not be able to raise a standard mortgage in this time frame, so a bridging loan can be used to complete on the purchase.

Uninhabitable Properties – Standard mortgages require the property to be in a habitual form – i.e. have a kitchen, bathroom, heating etc – but some properties are run down and due to their poor condition they are classed as uninhabitual and not suitable security for traditional mortgage lenders. In this situation bridging finance could be a solution.

Change of Use – This is where you plan to make extensive changes to the building, so for example change an office block into flats or convert a residential house into a HMO (House of Multiple Occupation). Due to these types of changes high street banks will not lend, whereas bridging loan lenders will consider this.


Benefits of a Bridging Loan

Flexibility – You can use this type of finance in lots of different situations as outlined above. Our panel of lenders are always open to discussing the transaction and tailoring the finance to the client’s needs.

Speed – This is an essential part of this type of finance as there are generally deadlines in place which need to be met.

Finance Size – We have bridging loan lenders that can offer loans from £50,000 to £25 Million.


Disadvantages of a Bridging Loan

Timescale – For regulated bridging finance (secured on your home) the loan can only last for 12 months and for non-regulated loans the max term is generally 18 months. You need to do your homework to make sure these timescales are feasible.

Cost – The longer the project runs for the more costly it will be, so you need to make sure you have really planned out the project and had advice from builders, planners, brokers etc.


What sort of costs are associated with Bridging Finance?

Typical costs that will be charged are:

Valuation Fees – A valuation will be needed on all properties that you are using to secure the finance. The valuation could be an automated valuation (Desktop) or a full valuation maybe required – The lender will consider which they would need.

Arrangement Fees – The lender will charge an arrangement fee for a bridging loan and this fee amount will be dependent upon the loan size. Additionally a broker fee maybe charged and the amount would depend upon the work involved for the the overall transaction and loan size.

Exit Fees – In some cases the lender may charge an exit fee, so look out for this in the terms issued by the lender.

Solicitor – You will need a solicitor to represent you and also the lender needs a solicitor to represent them. Generally you are responsible for the cost for both sets of solicitors involved in the transaction. In some cases the same solicitor firm can represent both parties.

Monthly Interest – The lender will charge you a monthly interest for lending you the money. How much this will be will depend many factors such as the loan size, the overall project, credit history and Deposit/Equity that you have.
