How do Bridging Loans work?

Bridging loans can be taken out on a first or second charge basis A first charge basis would be assuming there wasn’t another mortgage on the property . A second charge basis would be if there was already an existing mortgage.

The Bridge lender will want assurance that the loan will be able to be repaid and will want to see a  viable way that you will be able to pay off the loan after the term which is often after 1 year. Viable options of repayment are often selling the property or obtaining a mortgage.

As they are short term loans that are often less than a year the loans are charged on a monthly interest  rate. This interest rate can often be rolled up onto the loan so you don’t have to  make monthly payments although the whole loan plus interest will have to repaid at the tend of the term.

You can usually borrow up to 75%  of the value of the property.

I also really appreciated being able to speak to him in the evenings rather than only be available in office hours. Would use again and highly recommend.

Meeting Ryan has been a breath of fresh air and such a simple process. We had complicated circumstances with being self employed amongst a few other things but within a couple of weeks we had a suitable mortgage offer and the week after the application was in process. Ryan has been incredibly efficient in every way and i can't thank him enough.
