When you need large-scale finance immediately, a Bridging Loan could be the answer.
Bridging Loans are often used to fund property purchases, but there is no restriction on how funds can be used. So if you are faced with a sudden expense - or if you need finance to take advantage of an opportunity - a Bridging Loan secured on a property you already own could provide the answer.
A business Bridging Loan is a short-term loan secured against property.
The property can be residential, such as buy-to-let flats, or commercial, such as offices, factories or warehouses. The loan can be used to buy the property itself, or as funding for any other business purpose.
It’s called a Bridging Loan because it is designed to bridge a short-term funding gap. Bridging Loans are usually repaid quickly, either by the sale of the property or by another finance product designed for the long-term, such as a mortgage.
The loan can be as short as one day and run up to a maximum of 12 months. Loan amounts start at around £25,000, and there is no maximum.
A Bridging Loan can be arranged fast
Bridging Loans are intended to let you deal with urgent needs or to take advantage of opportunities as they come up. It is essential that you can have the loan agreed and the funds you want in the shortest possible time. Bridging Loans can be arranged within a matter of hours, and funds released in as little as 72 hours, under certain conditions.
Large amounts are involved, and lenders offering Bridging Finance will carry out detailed checks and apply conservative lending criteria, but are able to make rapid decisions because they can work without the bureaucracy that slows down many traditional lenders.
What do Bridging Loans cost?
Short-term finance is always more expensive than long-term lending. The costs of Bridging Finance can be relatively high but, because loans are for the short-term, the overall cost may have little actual impact on the long-term costs of a major purchase.
Interest rates charged will vary, depending on your circumstances and your business, and the deal to be funded. Current rates can range from 0.7-1.5% per month, with even higher rates for more difficult propositions.
In addition, there may be a number of fees, including an arrangement fee which can be 2% of the loan amount, an exit fee which can equal one month’s interest and surveyors’ and legal fees. If the loan runs over the agreed term there will also be substantial penalty fees.
Repayment arrangements can vary. In some cases, all fees and interest can be rolled up into the loan, which can be settled with a single repayment.
If you are using a Bridging Loan as a short-term solution for a property purchase it can often be paid off by a solution designed for the long-term, such as a Commercial Mortgage.
Why you need Rangewell to find the Bridging arrangements that are right for you
Bridging Loans involve large-scale funding, and getting the right deal can make a difference of tens of thousands of pounds.
Even a fraction of a percentage point can make a substantial difference to what you actually pay, while fees and penalties can complicate the position still further. There are many different lenders who may be prepared to offer funding. Each has their own approach to interest rates and fee arrangements, and comparing offers needs an expert eye.
At Rangewell, we know the lenders who can offer business Bridging, and we can use our expertise to identify the deal that really is the most appropriate for you. Our knowledge can not only help you secure the funding you need - it can save you a great deal of cash.

It is essential to have a clear exit strategy to ensure the loan can be repaid to avoid paying high penalty interest rates.
It is not always essential to use an FCA registered lender. Many reputable Bridging Lenders are members of the Association of Short Term Lenders, a self-regulating body which operates a strict code of conduct. Getting an expert view of which lender to use is essential.
You should remember that a Bridging Loan works like a mortgage and property may be at risk if the loan repayments are not kept up to date.
