What can I use my bridging loan for?
Bridging loans are great for unexpected purchases that you have not planned for, such as a house purchase. If you are currently waiting to sell your house and the home of your dreams comes available, a bridging loan can offer you access to a large short term cash fund for the ‘bridge’. In most cases the bridging loan is secured against your existing property so that the lender has security on the loan.
Other uses are auction finance and development loans. Many of our clients for both personal and commercial avenues come to us with a new project or development plan. First time home builders and established home builders alike use development loans to finance their projects.
Other commercial reasons for a bridging loan can be for an unexpected bill such as Corporation Tax, VAT, asset purchases and growth plans. Again, the lender requires security on their loan so you must be able to provide security with existing assets or on the new project or asset to be purchased. We have lenders both in the mainstream market and private investment market so we are sure to be able to find you a suitable solution.
