What is
a Bridging Loan?

When you think of bridging finance you probably think of stop-gap finance – when you’re trying to sell one property and buy another. Whilst it’s great for this, a bridging loan is really just interim finance that can be used as a short to mid-term loan.

Why pick

Give me the facts

  • Any UK registered or domiciled, limited or non-limited company
  • Funding from £100,000 – £2.5m. Max 75% loan-to-value (LTV)
  • Residential investment properties and land with planning
  • Duration from 1 – 18 months
  • First charge will always be registered against property
  • Decision in principle within 24 hours and a fully credit backed offer within 72 hours
  • It must be for a business purpose


Any business or developer looking to invest residential investment properties and land with planning.

Although Bridging Loans are often used to ‘bridge the gap’ between selling a property and buying another, they can be used for more or less any business purpose. Perhaps you want to make a first-time property investment at an auction. Or maybe you’re looking to refurbish a property to increase the yield.

To offer you greater borrowing potential, we base our LTV on the property’s open market value, on first charge loans, we can lend up to 75% of the value for buy-to-let residential property; up to 70% for a semi-commercial property; and up to 65% for commercial premises. Unlike some other lenders we will also lend against land; up to 55% for land without planning permission and 65% for land with planning permission – depending on location and experience.

On second charge loans we can lend up to 75% of the 90-day value on residential, semi-commercial and commercial properties.

If you’d prefer to keep your monthly repayments as low as possible during the term of the loan we can offer rolled-up interest which is payable at the end. It’s worth noting that the amount due can’t exceed our maximum LTV criteria.

We always keep our requests for documents to what’s absolutely necessary. For Bridging Loans, generally, we’d be looking for your last three months’ bank statements and colour photo ID. Details of your exit route will also be required.

We charge a set up fee of 2% of the loan which we include in your repayments, so you won’t have to pay it up front. The only other upfront cost would be for the valuation of the proposed security, which is paid for at the time of instruction, and solicitors fees which are deducted by the solicitors when the funds are being processed for pay out. There will be additional charges should your facility fall into default.
Of course. If you find yourself in a position where you can repay the loan quicker that’s fine by us.
