Bridging loans are a type of short-term property-backed finance, typically used to support a business with their need for temporary funds. The aim is to ‘bridge’ the gap between a debt falling due and the main line of credit becoming available.
The term time for a bridging loan is between 1 month and 18 months, with the loan repayable in full at the end of the term. Because this is simpler than other form of loans, they can be completed very quickly. Unlike other forms of borrowing, the monthly interest is often rolled into the loan with no repayments to make during the term of the loan.
You can borrow a large amount of money – up to £250 million
Flexible borrowing might apply
The loan is secured against your property, so you risk losing ownership if repayments are not met
The high interest rates that come with the loan – this is because you pay for the flexibility and swift payment
You’ll be charged a number of fees, so it’s a costly option
