Frequently Asked Client Questions

Why Should I Use a Broker to Find Me a Bridging Loan?

Bridging finance lenders criteria does tend to vary. By selecting the wrong lender, or simply not fully understand all of the terms and conditions of a particular deal, can mean the different between time wasted on aborted applications, money wastage in terms of overall costs and, in extreme cases, money wastage on incomplete aborted project or on great overpayment influencing overall costs.

For example, a lender may lend against a discounted property value based on a three month cycle. This could result in money wasted on a valuation with little chance of successfully securing the finance you need.

A broker will scour the whole market and find you the best finance rate weighing up your options with the right kind of tier lender (different lenders specialise in different kinds of loans for differing types of situations). A declined application could cause you to lose up-front costs.

In some cases, a person might not be sure that bridging finance is the right answer. A good broker will help you weigh up the options and point you in the right direction. Sometimes, for example, a specific type of mortgage might actually be cheaper and safer. We will always explain the pros and cons of every option, providing our opinion, but ultimately ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision that you feel safe and secure in making.

Is a bridge loan suitable for my circumstances?

A bridge loan can be used for virtually anything where short term finance is needed to bridge the gap between between a purchase (e.g. auctioned house purchase) and either coming across the money to purchase (e.g. selling another property) or getting a longer term loan (e.g. a mortgage). Although they usually are, bridging loans don’t always need to be about property purchase and property doesn’t always need to be held as security.

Drop us a message or give us a call telling us a little bit about your project and we will let you know right away whether a bridge loan is suitable source of finance. 95% of the time it is.

Below are some examples of what bridging finance has been used for:

  • Buying auctioned properties
  • A temporary cash injection for a business
  • To pay off tax or other bills quickly
  • Property development
  • Property refurbishment
  • Adding an extension to a home property that doubles as an office in order to provide space for new staff
  • In order to pay for a Buy to Let property
  • Meeting tight payment deadlines. Bank can take up to many weeks to underwrite and complete many loans, such as mortgages. In some cases this can mean that people miss the opportunity to get the property of their dreams.
  • In order to purchase land. This can be done without planning permission in many cases.
  • Bridging finance in order to purchase Solar Panel before the government subsidy lock-in cut off date.

Is there a charge for making an application/requesting a quote?

Do you charge a fee for you services?

Usually, no. We don’t often charge fee’s to our clients and our services are free. This is because lenders will provide us with a procreation fee for submitting business to them. The procreation fee that they pay to us will not effect your repayment rates in any way and you can rest assured that our only focus will be on getting you the best deal possible, not on passing business to a particular lender.

In certain specific, rare and usually more complex situations we may charge a fee. Don’t worry, once you have explained to us what you need we will let you know right away whether or not we are going to charge a fee for out services. Any initial upfront advice is free and we will only charge (we call it a success fee) upon successful completion of a loan agreement that you are happy with.

There is never any kind of charge for enquiring, asking for some initial advice or making an application.
