Why Should I Use a Bridging Loan?

The Buy to Let Broker have an expert team dealing with Auction Finance, Light and Heavy Refurbishment products and Development Finance.  Buying with a bridging loan is very liberating.  If you haven't used bridging before, the easiest way to describe it is that it's the closest thing to cash that money can buy.  It's faster, has less underwriting and property does not need to be in a lettable condition unlike Buy to Let Mortgages.  

We only advise the use of bridging loans carefully and in specific circumstances where traditional finance fails and where we have a suitable exit route for you, this is the beauty of using ourselves because we are able to find you that exit route since we have a buy to let team able to assist.  Infact with loans where the exit route is refinance, we'll advise and agree your exit route well before you start any bridging loan.

Bridging allows you to access property that may otherwise be out of reach without the use of cash.  It's superfast and funds can be drawn down in a week.  So if your solicitor is on the ball a fast purchase is very possible indeed. 

When Should You Use a Bridging Loan?

Don't forget that the costs of a bridging loan are only relative to your likely returns.  They are indispensable when they enable projects that would ordinarily be out of reach.  So although interest costs have come down considerably over the last 12 months, they still aren't considered 'cheap' compared to long term buy to let finance.  However, bridging lenders will lend where other traditional routes fail:

  • Rapid Speed Requirement - Transactions with very tight deadlines. e.g. contract races/auctions.
  • Renovation Need - Light Refurbishment & Heavy Refurbishment project
  • Chain Break - Avoid relying on a purchaser for existing property sales.
  • Change of Use - Development of an office block to residential use for example.
  • Auction Purchases - 28 day exchange should be easily achievable.
  • New Build Development - Purchasing land or building new housing development.
  • Conversion - Converting a house to flats for example.
  • 100% Loan to Value - Using additional security. 
  • Short Lease - purchase to extend lease and remortgage. 

 

What Does a Bridging Loan Cost?

Bridging loans tend to cost a flat rate per month starting at 0.44% for low loan to values, so clearly they are not designed as a long term solution.  

Other fees will include a valuation fee, arrangement fee, legal fees and with certain lenders an exit fee, so it’s vital to make use of a specialist broker, as we can usually find a deal which will suit the project and of course most importantly, you and your goals.  It is worth noting that interest can be rolled up to limit your outgoing costs during the project.

Yes, you might say it’s expensive, but the costs are only relative to the likely returns on the project you are considering. This will dictate whether the costs are prohibitive or not and of course there may be no other way to finance the project. 

What is certain is that expert advice from a specialist could mean the difference between a good investment and a bad one.  We don’t charge any upfront fees and for larger bridging loans expect to pay no broker fee at all.  You’ll know all aspects of the deal before you start the ball rolling so to speak.

We work in a similar manner across the board.  We'll build a profile of you and what you want to achieve therefore any solutions we recommend have a solid foundation.  We can then recommend the best options for your project and we avoid chasing avenues which aren’t feasible for you. Often to negate the worry and to to keep costs down to a minimum.
