A large Bridging Loan is considered as a short-term, property-backed facility for amounts in excess of £2,500,000
Bridging Loans are short-term financial solutions which are usually secured on property and they have a number of uses. As the name suggests, Bridging Loans can bridge the gap between a debt coming due and a main line of credit becoming available - a common use is to purchase a property before an existing property is sold.
However, they have other uses too. They can be used to raise large qualities of cash on an existing property for investment elsewhere, and they can be used to buy property where a mortgage cannot be arranged.
They can also be used to secure very large properties for investment or development before long-term funding is arranged.
At Rangewell, we deal with Bridging loans at all levels. We regard a large Bridging Loan as being in excess of £2,500,000.
We know that the needs of high-value property investment are substantially different from many of the other areas in which bridging lenders operate, and require a highly experienced team to set up.
Large Bridging Loans may be used to:
Raise large quantities of cash for the short term. Using an existing property asset as a security for a short-term loan can provide a cost-effective way to raise cash for investment elsewhere. The only limit to the funding available will be the value of the property.
Provide a way of securing property for investment. Bridging Loans can be provided fast. Acquiring a major property, such as a retail estate or landmark building, may require a high level of funding that would not be available in time. The bridge is intended to be replaced with a mortgage or other lending for the long-term as soon as it can be arranged.
Provide funding for development. Unimproved land, obsolete and even derelict buildings - which are not suitable for mortgages - can be bought with a Bridging Loan. A large-scale bridge may be a simple way to fund both acquisition and development.
How much will a major bridge cost?
The cost of providing a major bridge will, inevitably, be high. Bridges are designed for short-term use with a maximum term of 2 years and, in most cases, much less, but as part of a properly structured deal, they may be highly cost-effective.
The actual cost, however, will depend on a number of different factors. The size of the loan and the purpose of the funding will be important factors. It will also be essential to have an exit strategy in place, which can include refinancing or the sale of the property.
A rate of 0.95% per month might be a starting point for negotiations. In addition to your monthly interest, lenders will also charge a lender arrangement fee – this is a fee for actually setting up the loan. This fee is usually between 1.5% and 2% of the loan amount, although this is sometimes discounted as low as 1%, especially on larger loans.
Remember, repayment is also negotiable. Monthly or staged repayments may be possible, but it is often preferable to arrange for interest and fees to be rolled up into a single final repayment.
