What is involved in a bridging loan application?

Completing our online form only takes a few minutes!

Step 1: Understanding your needs

One of our bridging loan application specialists will give you a call to discuss the purpose of the loan and your financial needs, to ensure they find the most suitable solution for you.

They will need to take down the details of the property or properties that you will be using as security and an idea of your exit strategy to help ensure a repayment option that suits your circumstances.

Step 2: Lender valuation

Once the best option has been identified for you, the bridging lender will need to arrange a valuation of the property, in order to ensure that they will cover the finance required.

As soon as the lender valuation is complete, they will pass the report on to their conveyancer (property solicitor) to complete the legal work.

Note: You may need to instruct your own solicitor at this stage, if appropriate.

Step 3: Completion and loan payout

As soon as step 2 has been completed, the lender will release the bridging funds to your solicitor, at which point you can access it immediately.

How much can I borrow?

The value of the property and its possible future rental income (if applicable), dictate how much you can borrow.

Financing something with a Bridging Loan works in much the same way as a traditional residential or commercial mortgage: you pay a proportion of the cash up-front as a deposit, and the bridging lender lends you the rest.
