What are Bridging Loans?

A bridging loan is a type of short term finance that effectively bridges the time between buying your new home and the sale of your current property going through. This finance means that you can complete the purchase of your new house, before you have the finances available from the old one. There are many situations where it may be necessary, for example if there is a disruption in the property chain, or the market is moving very quickly and you could potentially lose the new dwelling. Bridging financing can be arranged very quickly, in as little as a few weeks, and provides the ideal solution to provide you with fast funding.

How are Bridging Loans Utilised? 

There may be many different reasons why you need to buy your new property, in advance of the sale of your current home finalising. Bridging loans are used to bridge the gap in finances between these two processes. Bridging loans can be utilised for a range of different reasons, as a short term loan.

Bridging finance is also accessible to both property developers and landlords, who are buying properties at auction. In these circumstances, a property often needs paying for in a short amount of time. This means the buyer can complete the sale, whilst their mortgage is still being organised.

Bridging loans are also very useful if a property is ‘unmortgageable’ and needs to be made habitable to be viable for a mortgage. Other situations include:

  • Buying property at auction
  • Renovations
  • Buying land and the necessary supplies to construct a property
  • Buy-to-lets
  • Investments
  • Downsizing
  • Tax bill payments
  • Purchasing a retirement property
