Why Fast Bridging Loans?

Apr 26, 2008
There are often times when you find yourself needing a loan in order to pay for something big and getting yourself a fast bridging loan may be the answer. The sort of circumstances that you may find this useful are, for example, when you wish to bid at auction. When you make a bid at an auction, and your bid is successful, you have entered yourself into a binding contract to purchase the lot that you were bidding on. It is therefore extremely important to make sure that you have all your finances in place prior to attending the auction, otherwise you may find yourself having trouble paying and this could cost you dearly. The normal time frame that you are expected to complete and pay for your purchase entirely is between 14 and 28 days following the finish of the auction.

An application for fast bridging loans is more often than not quick and easy and can often be completed online, with an answer given within a couple of days. Often very little documentation is required so if you find a property that you like you should be able to get the necessary funds together relatively fast.

Fast bridging loans are often typically more expensive than other forms of more conventional financing. This is largely down to the higher rates of interest rate charged as this type of lending is considered to be more of a risk for the lender. However, they are a lot quicker to organise.

A fast bridging loan is commonly taken out as a short term measure for occasions when you require a large amount of money, commonly for when you wish to purchase a property or a plot of land that you wish to develop. This type of loan is usually expected to be repaid within around 6 months but this may be slightly longer or shorter depending on when you can obtain the money needed to repay the borrowing.

There are a variety of situations may mean that you need a bridging loan, with the most common being when you need to purchase and complete on a residential property but you are yet to fully complete on the sale of your existing property.

The amount that you can borrow will vary greatly and depends mainly upon the company or broker you choose to go through and how much the market value of the property you are purchasing. How much you will be able to borrow will also depend on what security (such as your property) that you can offer as this type of borrowing is secured against either property or land.

In summary, you may take out fast bridging loans for auction purposes, buying a commercial property, residential property or for purchasing land. A bridging loan may be defined as either open or closed; a closed loan means that you have a certain date predetermined for when it will be rapid as opposed to an open bridging loan in which there is no fixed date given for repayment.
