A bridging loan is used as a short term alternative until a longer term solution is available. Depending on the use and criteria, rates currently start from 0.65% per month and for a term of usually up to 12 months, albeit longer periods can be negotiated either at the beginning or throughout the initially agreed term of the loan.
Bridging loans are used primarily for property related reasons and can be secured on most residential property or land in mainland UK (subject to valuation) whether habitable or not. Funds raised from bridging finance can be used for pretty much and legal reason, provided it is agreed with the lender from the outset.
A specialist bridging loan company such as bridgingloans.co.uk, have, due to the volume we process, special relationships with all of the key lenders and know the requirements needed to ensure a quick and smooth transaction. We also use our own funds for certain lending, which helps us to move even quicker if required. Processing time is however normally 3 - 5 working days.
Due to our FCA regulated principle, we can transact all types of loans on all types or property. This ensures that with just one call we can give the answers you require. We are not even limited by loan size and currently have no minimum or maximums.
We pride ourselves on the speed of our transactions. We will normally call you within hours of an emailed application and supply a written agreement shortly afterwards. If you call our office, this process will be even quicker. If you decide to progress with the application we can instruct the valuation and legal team immediately while the paperwork is being processed, thus saving valuable time. We would either post, email or visit you to obtain the required signatures and documentation, which is again done shortly after the initial contact and agreement to proceed. We don’t charge upfront fees, so it is in our interest to complete on every case as soon as possible.
We are available from 9 -9, 7 days a week, including most holiday periods.
Brokers / Introducers
We are an accredited bridging loan packagerfor those lenders that we deem to be the most competitive bridging loan providers in the market and that cover all aspects of the requirements of bridging finance. Most importantly we work with companies who do what they say and that, like ourselves, move quickly and efficiently. With this in mind, why not give us a chance and allow us to take the hassle out of the processing of your cases.
Most of our introducers are:
- looking for help with placing a case
- needing support with processing a case or cases
- dealing with bridging finance on aninfrequent basis
As we are constantly involved in the volume administering of bridging loans we know what each of our individual lenders require to enable a case to be sourced, processed and completed in the quickest possible timeframe. Each case until complete is regularly and systematically reviewed by our highly qualified internal administration team and dedicated case handler. At the very least progression on each and every case is reviewed and actioned formally, twice per day. You will have one contact point at the company who will be responsible for and will own all aspects of your case from start to finish.
We pay commission on the day of completion, usually before we receive paymentourselves and normally at the same percentage rate or higher than most brokers would receive if they themselves went direct to the lender.
We can have as much or as little interaction with your client as you prefer however most introducers like us to handle the whole process which is also our recommended option. Most importantly however, the client always remains your client. We will not cross sell or contact them at any time in the future or for any reason unless you specifically ask us to do so.
Our system works equally well whether you are a regular processor of bridging finance having difficulty in placing a case, whether you simply don't have the time to process the cases yourself or if you are a one off single case introducer.
Through our directly FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) authorised "whole of market" mortgage and general insurance brokerage, World of Mortgages, we can process FCA regulated mortgage products including the bridging loans fitting into that category. World of Mortgages advisors are also qualified to handle Equity Release mortgages. When submitting a case via this website, we will always advise placement with the product we believe is most suitable for your clients needs.
