What Is A Bridging Loan?

Bridging loans are short-term finance products. When you work with a reputable lender, you get the peace of mind that your bridging loan application will be straightforward and hassle-free. Professional advice can help to sort out some of the potential problems and structure the bridging loan correctly.

To secure bridging financing, the borrower must provide an asset, such as property that can act as security. In exchange, you can negotiate a shorter repayment term of between 6-12 months.  A clear exit plan in place, such as refinancing or selling the asset, increases your chances of securing a bridging loan.
