Frequently asked questions

The basics

What is a bridging loan?

Bridging loans are a form of short term, property-backed finance. They're commonly used to 'bridge' the time between buying a new property and selling a previous one, or while waiting for a regular mortgage to become available. Interest is often rolled up or retained so that the loan doesn’t need to be serviced monthly.

Who can apply for a bridging loan?

Anyone can apply for a bridging loan, either as an individual or limited company.

Who might need a bridging loan?

Bridging loans are for clients who need quick, short-term capital to fund a property purchase. This includes those who:

  • Need to complete their sale quickly. This includes property developers, who can often secure a great deal if they buy fast.
  • Buy through auction. Bridging finance is popular with those buying property at auction. Here, completion has to take place within 28 days, which means traditional financing is not an option.
  • Are in a broken property chain. With a bridging loan, your client secures their new property before the sale on their existing one is complete.
  • Want to buy an uninhabitable property. Traditional lenders won't lend on a property if there's no kitchen, bathroom, central heating, or running water (especially buy-to-let mortgages). However, a bridging lender will base its lending on the property’s value in its current condition. This means buyers can access the property while making it habitable.
