Bridging Finance for land is a type of specialist short-term finance used to purchase or refinance land, fast
A Bridging Loan is a product which gives you the purchasing power of a mortgage and the speed and flexibility of a personal loan. It can mean being able to access large sums of money without waiting for weeks for funds to become available.
It is because of this flexibility that Bridging Loans can be used to secure and purchase an asset quickly. Most Bridging Loans are secured against residential or commercial property, and the loan can be used to buy the property itself, or to fund any other business purpose.
A Land Bridge, or Land Bridging Loan, is a special kind of bridge which is secured against land.
Unimproved land - with no buildings - may actually be difficult to raise funds on. Its value will increase if it has planning permission.
A Land Bridge, however, may be used as a short-term solution to help you buy the land while planning permission is obtained.
Once planning permission is granted, this product then allows you to refinance with Development Finance or a similar product. This can reflect the increase in value of the land because of the planning permission and can allow you to raise extra funding to finance the build as well as the land.
How much will a Land Bridge cost?
The cost of providing a Land Bridge will depend on a number of factors - the location of the plot, its current value, and its value once the relevant planning permission is secured will all be taken into account.
If the land has no planning agreed, a rate of 1.25%-1.5% per month might be appropriate.
Rates will be lower if the land already has planning permission.
If the land has the relevant planning permission to build on and the location is deemed to be good, you could expect to pay a rate of around 0.95% per month.
Additionally to the monthly cost of the interest, lenders will charge a lender arrangement fee, which is a fee for setting up the loan. This is usually between 1.5% and 2% of the total loan amount, although this is sometimes discounted to as low as 1%, especially on larger loans.
Bridging Loans have a relatively high cost and are intended to be repaid quickly, either by the sale of the property or by refinancing with another finance product designed for the long-term, such as a mortgage. They usually can cover around 70% of the total value of the property or land they are secured on.
A Bridging Loan can be arranged fast
Bridging Loans are intended to let you deal with urgent funding needs or to take advantage of business opportunities that have to be dealt with fast. All Bridging Loans can be set up within a matter of hours, and funds released in as little as 72 hours, under certain conditions.
