A bridging loan is designed to be a short term finance arrangement to “bridge” the gap between two different transactions. Specifically with property, this sort of arrangement would typically cover the interval between selling one property and buying another.
Let’s say for instance that you have found your next dream home, but the sale of yours has been held up, or delayed for some reason. To prevent the collapse of your purchase, you could look at a bridging loan to secure the purchase and settle the bridging loan once the sale on your existing property completes.
These loans really are designed to be used as a short term arrangement. They are more expensive than a traditional mortgage but are well suited to the scenario above. Application to completion times can be much quicker and there are normally no monthly payments to make, interest is rolled up and added to the loan, meaning this is paid off at the end.
