Frequently asked Bridging Finance questions
How does Bridging Finance work?
Bridging loans are short-term finance solutions designed to provide fast funding. They ‘bridge’ the gap between a debt and a main line of credit becoming available. Bridging Finance relies on an exit strategy in order for the loan to be repaid, for example, selling a property or refinancing on to a buy-to-let mortgage.
Interest on Bridging Finance is charged at a monthly rate rather than an annual percentage rate (APR) because they are designed to be repaid within a few weeks or months.
How much Bridging Finance can I borrow?
We work with a variety of lenders that generally lend between £75,000 to £500,000.
The loan to value (LTV) you secure depends on the value of the security you are providing. You can typically borrow a maximum of 75% on residential property and 60% on commercial property, however, this varies from lender to lender.
Who is eligible for Bridging Finance?
As security is required, credit history and proof of income is generally unimportant to lenders and most will accept:
- Employed, self-employed or retired.
- Private individuals, partnerships or limited companies.
- Borrowers over the age of 18 years old.
- Borrowers that live or have a registered address in the United Kingdom.
- Borrowers with a form of security – usually one or more properties.
- Borrowers with a defined exit route to repay the loan.
How long does it take to get Bridging Finance?
Bridging funds can be available within a matter of days, the normal timeframe is 5 – 10 days for completion. If you require the funds fast, speak to our team who will be able to act quickly and approach the best lender.

Most types of UK property can be used as security against a bridging loan. This includes residential houses and flats, offices, warehouses and other types of commercial premises. Land with and without planning permission is also accepted.
Can I borrow 100% of the purchase price?
This varies depending on the lender but – Yes, you can borrow 100% of the purchase price if you have additional property or properties to offer as security. You may also be able to borrow 100% of the purchase price if the property at significantly below its true market value.
