Information about bridging loan payment calculations.
Calculating monthly payments on a bridging loan
There are two ways of paying interest on a bridging loan and, therefore, two ways of calculating bridging loan payments:
- Serviced payments
- Rolled up interest
One thing common to all bridging loan payment calculations is that, you only ever repay the interest the lender charges. The capital remains due at the end of the loan term.
Serviced payment calculations on a bridging loan
This option gives you the maximum borrowing on day one. Monthly payments on a serviced bridging loan are calculated based on paying the interest monthly. The capital lump sum must be repaid at the end of the loan.
This method of borrowing suits customers who will have a consistent, regular cash-flow, throughout the lifetime of the loan and will be able to service monthly payments without over-extending themselves.
Calculating rolled up payments on bridging finance
Taking out a bridging loan with rolled up payments means you do not repay interest during the lifetime of the loan. Instead, interest owed on a rolled up bridging loan is calculated at the time of application and charged at redemption of the loan (not monthly).
It is important to understand that, when calculating costs on a bridging loan with rolled up interest, the total borrowing must be within the lenders loan to value restrictions - e.g. to calculate the amount you can borrow, you must include the amount of borrowing plus the rolled interest owed, which in total can't go over the maximum loan to value.
Calculating bridging loan borrowing, based on the maximum loan to value
At present, bridging loans are calculated at the the maximum loan to value we can currently access of 75%. This means that you will have to put down 25% of the property value.
