What Is A Bridging Loan?

A bridging loan is a form of short-term finance that is generally used to bridge the gap while long-term funding is secured.

For example, when purchasing a property that does not qualify for a traditional mortgage, a bridging loan allows time for the buyer to renovate or complete the requirements that need doing to the property. Meaning, long-term finance can then be secured. It is also a viable option when finance is required quickly.

However, the borrower can pay back a loan with Novellus, in full at any time within the term, without incurring any early repayment fees.
