How does a Bridging Loan work?

Bridge loans are typically secured against the borrower’s existing property and are usually repaid within 6 to 12 months. 

However, if the borrower is unable to repay the loan in full, the lender may charge higher interest rates to offset the risk of default.

A bridge loan differs from a traditional mortgage in that it is designed to be a temporary financing solution rather than a long-term investment. 

This means that lenders who offer bridging finance tend to charge higher interest rates than those offering traditional mortgages.

Ultimately, bridge loans can be an effective way for borrowers to purchase a new property without having to wait for the sale of their existing home, but it’s important to carefully consider the terms and conditions before proceeding with this type of loan.

What can you use a Bridge Loan for?

One of the most common reasons to obtain a bridge loan is to buy a property while waiting for funds from the sale of another property. 

For instance, if you want to buy a new property but have not yet sold your current one, a bridging loan can bridge the gap between the sale and purchase.

Additionally, a bridge loan can be used to fund renovations on an existing property to increase the value before applying for a long-term mortgage. 

This type of loan can also be useful for investors who want to purchase a property that needs significant repairs or upgrades before applying for a long-term mortgage. 

A bridge loan can provide the necessary funds for temporary ownership of a property while waiting for long-term financing or selling the property. 

GPS Financial offers a range of bridging finance depending on the use case, these can include:

How much can you borrow with a Bridge Loan?

The amount that can be borrowed using a bridge loan will depend on the value of the property that is being used as security. 

Typically, lenders will offer bridge loans up to 70% – 85% of the value of the property that is being secured against the loan. 

This means that the borrower will need to have some equity in the property to be able to access bridging finance. 

In some cases, lenders may consider offering a higher loan-to-value ratio, but this will depend on the individual circumstances of the borrower and the property in question. 

As bridge loans are intended to be a short-term solution, they typically have higher interest rates than traditional loans. Therefore, it is important for borrowers to have a clear plan for repaying the loan as soon as possible.

What are the criteria to get Bridging Finance?

To get a bridging loan, the borrower must apply for the loan amount, which is usually based on the valuation of the property. 

The lender may require the property to be valued by an independent valuer to determine the loan amount. 

The criteria to get a bridging loan may include a solid repayment plan as the loan is typically short-term, lasting 6 to 12 months. 

The borrower may also need to provide collateral such as property or assets to secure the loan. 

The lender may also consider the borrower’s credit history to ensure that they have the ability to repay the loan. 

Ultimately, the amount of bridging finance that will be granted depends on the value of the property and the lender’s risk assessment of the borrower.
