    Using Bridging Finance in 2024

    Bridging loans offer a swift and flexible short term financing option with which savvy investors, landlords and residential buyers can use in today’s fast changing market. Bridging loans can be useful in a variety of ways to help bridge the finance gap when you don’t have immediate access to funds.

    Some examples include:


    • Invest in under-valued property for renovations to increase rental price and property value.
    • Upgrade an EPC rating for rental property.


    • Short-term funding option to purchase land, property, or fund certain parts of a build.
    • Flexible bridge-to-let mortgages to bridge the gap between purchasing and securing a long term buy-to-let mortgage. Potentially release money for the next project when refinancing.


    • Save a property sale & break a property chain
    • Complete a property transaction faster
    • Take advantage of opportunities by purchasing property below-market-value.
