Flexible Short Term Finance
Bridging loans are a specialist kind of loan designed solely for short-term usage to provide a temporary cash flow solution or ‘bridge’ before additional permanent finance becomes available.
The method for obtaining a bridging loan is straightforward and really versatile with a more flexible set of criteria than most high street banks and mortgage lenders. Like a mortgage, a bridging loan is secured against your property.

How do bridging loans work?
Bridging loans are frequently utilised as an answer to a temporary cash flow problem. A common example of this type of situation is when a person wishes to buy a property but still needs to sell their existing home. A bridging loan can, in these circumstances, provide a solution by offering short-term funding.

What situations might require a bridging loan?
You can use a bridging loan to:
- Beat the competition - Secure a property quickly before it is snapped up by another buyer – even if you have not yet sold your current home
- Mortgage chain issues? - Buy a property even in the event that the home buying chain breaks down – for example, if the sale of your old house falls through, a bridging loan can allow you to still have sufficient funds to purchase the new house
- Buying an auction property? – Use a bridging loan to pay the required percentage needed to secure the property on the day of the auction
- Need to move fast? - Get a fast, temporary cash injection when you most need it during the property purchasing process. The ability to move quickly can make the difference on any property transaction.
- Development finance - If you are buying property to redevelop and you need finance to get your project off the ground, then a bridging loan could help make the difference.
Types of bridging loans
Bridging loans come in two varieties. The first is the closed bridging loan. This is exclusively available to people who have already exchanged on a specific property and need the finance to secure it. This type of bridging loan can be easier to come by, as the lender will consider the sale unlikely to fall though at this point.
The second type of bridging loan is known as an open bridging loan. This is aimed at people who have found a property they want to buy, but have not yet sold their current home. Due to the increased chance of a sale not occurring, lenders are often more reluctant to offer open bridging loans. Your chances of acceptance will be increased if you have a lot of equity in your current property.
Conditions of bridging loans
A bridging loan can be used for almost any purpose and can be secured on many different types of property. In some cases you may be able to borrow up to 80% of the value of the property. However, due to their speed and convenience, bridging loans often charge high rates of interest. Therefore, before choosing a bridging loan, make sure you research the market and consider all your funding options before applying.
