Bridging Loans Explained

If you are looking to purchase a property within the UK or in Europe, but are worried about arranging funds when buying the new property, a bridging loan could be the answer.

There can be times when you want to buy a new property, but selling your existing property can take much longer than expected. In this type of situation a bridging loan could be the easiest way to arrange funds. With a bridging loan you can bridge the gap between the sale of your existing home and the purchase of your new property.

Bridging loans are secured loans, therefore the lender will place a charge either on the borrowers existing property if it is unencumbered, or they can use the property they wish to buy as security.

Bridging loans can be used for most types of property purchase:

  • Residential properties
  • Commercial plots or Semi-commercial properties
  • Auction properties
  • Retail shops
  • Development sites
