What is a Bridging Loan?

A bridging loan is a short-term finance product that bridges a gap when purchasing a property, such as:

  • Securing a property before completing the sale of your existing property
  • Buying an auctioned property and needing the finance at the point of bidding
  • Buy-to-let property
  • Commercial property purchase
  • Refurbishment and sell projects
  • Any other gap that needs short-term property finance

At the end of the bridging loan, which is normally 12 to 24 months, you’ll need to repay the balance using sale of property, a new mortgage or other capital

How long does it take to arrange?

The nature of a bridging loan means you need speed and efficiency in any application made.

Once you have submitted an enquiry, we will get an initial decision to you in 1 hour (within our working hours) and contact you at your earliest convenience to progress your application. Speak to us today

Helping one customer with bad credit to take out a bridging loan

One customer wanted to downsize but was struggling to get finance because of his bad credit.
With our specialist team, he was able to:

  • Secure a bridging loan of almost £600,000 over a 12-month term to improve his financial situation
  • Pay off existing mortgage and arrears
  • Sell his property to buy a smaller home and pay back his arrears to the original lender

Customer story

Our customer wanted to pay off the arrears on his existing mortgage. He was struggling to secure a remortgage with his original lender because of his age, amount needed and low credit score. This was because he’d missed some mortgage payments due to cash flow issues within his business. We worked closely with the customer to match him to another lender which was happy to offer him a bridging loan, which covered his costs. This meant the customer could gain control of his financial situation, using the bridging loan to clear his existing arrears with the original lender. The customer was then able to sell his property and downsize, making his finances more manageable going forward.
