How does ‘bridging finance’ work?
Bridging lenders assess the viability of your proposition based on three main considerations:
1) Valuation – Generally a lender will use the ‘open market value’ of your property, rather than the ‘forced sale value’ or the purchase price. Use of this ‘built-in equity’ can potentially reduce the capital that you will need to provide in order to purchase the property or fund its development.
2) Interest – is usually ‘rolled-up’ or ‘deducted’ from the advance, hence monthly payments can be avoided, which assists cash-flow, and usually eliminates the necessity of having to prove income via salary slips or accounts.
3) How you will ‘exit the bridge’ – the exit strategy is key to all bridging finance deals. This is a short term funding facility and should be treated as such, therefore we always discuss your intended exit strategy, which may include the sale of the property (or separate security property), or the provision of a ‘normal’ longer term mortgage, which we, of course, are also able to arrange for you.
Whatever your proposition may be, contact us to discuss your requirements in complete confidence.
