Frequently Asked Questions
Bridging loans are typically used as an interim finance option while longer-term funding from a traditional lender is secured. If you’re purchasing a site or property whilst waiting to release capital from existing development projects, a commercial bridge loan can facilitate the purchase without holding up the sales process.
By securing a bridging loan, it allows your workflow to maintain momentum and reduces the risk of capital being unnecessarily held up in an unfinished project or development. Having the interim funding of a bridging loan in place can also give you more leverage during property negotiations or competing for a particular site prior to your long-term financing being put in place.
