Bridging Loan For 12 Months
Bridging loans are a type of short term finance which offer a temporary funding solution when other types of borrowing are not available or appropriate.
Loan terms for bridging finance can be as short as required and usually go up to a maximum of 18 months, although longer terms may be available depending on circumstances. Bridging loans tend to come with flexible repayment terms, meaning you can usually repay early if required.
Can you get a bridging loan for 12 months?
Loan terms of twelve months on bridging finance are perfectly possible. For residential bridging 12 months is the maximum term.
To get a bridging loan, you normally need to specify an exit strategy, explaining exactly how you will repay the loan. This exit strategy may give a specific date for repayment e.g. if you have sold your home and exchanged contracts and are simply waiting to complete.
Alternatively, your exit strategy can be open, meaning you specify the means of repaying the loan, but not the exact date on which it will happen.
How much will a bridging loan for 12 months cost?
The main costs of a bridging loan are:
- The arrangement fee (usually 1-2% of the capital – charged when the loan is first taken out)
- The exit fee - some lenders may charge an exit fee
- Interest (normally charged monthly or as a lump sum when the loan is repaid)
The shorter the loan term, the less you will pay in interest and therefore the cheaper the bridging loan will be.
