The Bridging Finance Solution
Case study – £543K loan for investment property:
Scenario: An applicant was looking to leverage the equity of one of his investment properties in order to purchase another. However, it transpired that there was not enough equity for a second charge bridging loan to facilitate the purchase.
Solution: After reviewing the case carefully, a bridging loan was arranged of £543,000 on a 1st charge basis over six months which allowed the applicant to borrow the full amount required and to complete the purchase. They would then refinance to a longer term loan to exit the bridge after six months.
