Bridging loans – Let first4commercial compare the market for you! Over 70+ lenders.

Bridging loans or bridging finance can be used in a variety of ways aside from the usual chain-break scenarios. Bridging loans have fast become one of the quickest and most reliable forms of finance for those who require speed or flexibility. Speed is the most common reason for using bridging finance and this is when it comes into its own. We assist lots of clients when they are purchasing property at auction or have a tight deadline to meet and a conventional mortgage will simply not be ready in time.

Down-sizing is also a very common reason for clients needing to use bridging loans. Age is always a factor with mainstream mortgage lenders and so this is where bridging loans really fill the void. We have lenders who do have an age restriction and have lent to customers who are in their late nineties. This is because they look at the property and the equity within it when assessing applications, the client is secondary in this process. With the help of rolled up interest payments, so you do not need to make a monthly payment, affordability for any loan is also taken out of the equation. This is why a lot of our older customers, who wish to down-size their property but do not want to wait for their current property to sell, use this option.

There has been a lot of demand for bridging loans from clients looking to extend/renegotiate short lease properties. We are able to assist with the types of applications even when a short lease property is in probate for example.B The usual, refurbishment pending sale, below-market value transactions, divorce settlement and debt repayments are also available and remain a mainstay of the bridging market.
