Bridging Loans Explained

What is a Bridging Loan

A bridging loan is a short-term loan secured on your property by way of a first or second legal charge.

You pay back (redeem) the original loan, the interest and the fees, in full, at the end of the agreed term (normally between 1-18 months) or earlier if you are able to.

The reasons for requiring a Bridging Loan can vary enormously, but the underlying principle of the loan remains the same - you need the funding now and will pay the loan back, in the short term, once you sell your other assets.

Why use a Bridging Loan

The principle reason is to provide immediate cashflow to acquire investment property or provide funds for business purposes

If you have assets but not cashflow, sometimes you need funding quickly to seize an opportunity, settle a debt or purchase property while you can sell other assets.

This is where a Bridging Loan from Bridging Link can be used to provide that necessary cashflow, and really quickly.
