Bridging Finance is a short term loan that provides fast access to funding when it is needed most. Bridging loans can be used to raise funds for any legal purpose and are designed to last for no longer than 12 months and require you to have a strategy in place to ensure that you can repay the loan.
To provide an example, bridging finance may be suitable for people who purchase a property at auction, where funds are required quickly. It is much quicker to arrange than a normal residential mortgage; on average 7-10 working days from the first enquiry to completion.
A customer was successful in purchasing a property from auction for investment purposes, but had a deadline to complete of 28 days. Although the customer's bank agreed the finance in principle they would have struggled to complete the loan within the timescale needed. The customer did not wish to lose his deposit so he arranged bridging finance and was able to complete the loan within 5 working days. The customer was then able to re-mortgage with his bank to redeem the bridging loan.
A customer had an outstanding VAT bill and was given a final demand to pay the bill within one week. The customer was in the process of re-mortgaging a portfolio of buy-to-let properties but was not able to release the equity in time to pay the outstanding bill. The customer did not want to risk waiting for the re-mortgages to complete so he enquired about bridging finance and was able to complete the loan within 48 hours. The customer's re-mortgages completed shortly after; which redeemed the bridging loan.
