Solutions for all short to medium term bridging finance requirements
If you’re unfamiliar with the term “bridging finance”, it refers to a short to medium term loan. The most used example of bridging finance is that of a house sale and purchase. You get a bridging loan to buy your new home before you’ve sold your current home. But it doesn’t need to be a home, it could be any significant purchase. For more of my thoughts on Bridging Finance, make sure you read or listen to me here.

How Your Financing Will Work
Mortgages as Financing Security
My lenders generally require a first mortgage over your property as security. For strong proposals however, I do have access to second mortgages up to approx. $500K.
Loans can be as high as 80% of the current market value of your property. A lower percentage lending ratio will generally apply for bare land or commercial property.
Interest rates range from approx. 2.5% per annum to 10% per annum depending on the nature of the security and the borrower’s financial position. These can be firmed up after our initial chat over the phone. Some higher risk scenarios have been priced even higher than 10% so interest rates are very much dependent on the quality of the proposal.
Lender fees are generally between 1 to 2% of the loan amount. My fee will be discussed with you at the initial enquiry once I have an understanding of what your situation and bridging requirements are. I will always aim to get your funding through a mainstream bank if I believe this is a viable option, which is obviously a cheaper option.
