Point 1: Finance for properties investment, including unusual property types
Not all property is considered equal in the eyes of lenders. We access the whole of the market and therefore know through first-hand experiences the most suitable provider whatever the project entails, whether it is in finance a renovation, complete a land purchase or take the first steps into a new property investment project.
Bridging loans tend to be a lot more flexible than a mortgage when it comes to both commercial and residential properties and projects. With so many people trying to get into buy-to-let, it can be a great choice for you are already landlords, looking to become a landlord, or if you represent investors looking to build portfolios – and it’s one of the few options left for applicants looking to buy dilapidated properties for full renovation.
Point 2: Secure the property you want with a fast loan
Clients can face the agony of a waiting game when it comes to property purchases, and run the risk of losing out while other potential buyers gain interest in the property; particularly as the buy to let market gets increasingly popular.
But it doesn’t have to be like that. Bridging loans can be used to purchase a property quicker than traditional finance such as mortgages.
It’s a facility that works particularly well for those who don’t wish to miss key investment opportunities.
Point 3: Do you want to be a self-made property entrepreneur?
We admire those who’ve made it on their own. You are your boss, but finding funding to seize a short term business or property opportunity can often be difficult.
Many high street lenders have tightened criteria and procedures in recent years, meaning that traditional loans are not always available to fund a business opportunity.
Bridging finance from specialist lenders is different – it can work for both applicants with or without a good credit rating, and for commercial, semi-commercial or business loans.
So if you are self-employed, sole traders, partnerships or limited companies, you may be surprised at what’s available, even for the least likely clients.
Point 4: Short term funding for the renovation of a property
Thinking of purchasing a property to renovate and need finance? I’m sure you are excited by the prospect of the potential equity you can make. You do however need to be aware that most mortgage providers will need the property to be habitable from day 1. That’s right have a working bathroom, kitchen and heating – home improvements which often are the difference between buying a renovation or a fully finished property.
A short term loan is the answer and we can oversee the whole process.
Point 5: Pre-agreed funding line for property purchase
If you thinking of buying at an auction you need to know that your finance is in place otherwise you could easily loose the property you want or unnecessary risk your deposit.
Point 6: Finance for Business expansion / Finance for Business opportunities
For today’s businesses, cash is king. If you don’t have the readies, you can’t take up the opportunities – it’s as simple as that.
But at the same time, those opportunities can crop up when least expected and, if finance isn’t to hand, they’ll slip away only to be snapped up by competitors.
It’s in these situations that bridging finance really comes into its own. When that once-in-a-lifetime chance presents itself, clients can get the right amount of money at the right time.
So if short-term liquidity’s an issue, businesses can still generate capital for acquisitions, stock purchases or the latest innovations, keeping them on top of their game and ahead of their rivals.
Point 7: Capital Injection for Business / Finance To Help With Cashflow / Fund A Management Buy Out
No business is without some unexpected hiccups and surprises along the way. You may need urgent finance for a sudden bill, tax demand or to satisfy a short term cash flow requirement.
Instead of re-mortgaging onto long term finance; we can help you take out a bridging loan to cover the short term need. A bridging loan can be provided as a second charge behind a mainstream mortgage to facilitate this.
Bridging finance is also ideal in a management buy out/buy in situation due to short time scales. It can be used in the interim period before traditional funding is put in place. With bridging finance from specialist lenders, your clients have quick solutions to short term problems.
Point 8: Second charge commercial bridging
Most businesses have their first charge with a high street bank, which can make access to extra funding difficult, as they generally don’t offer further advances on their long term business loans.
It is for these reasons you should be aware that second charge commercial bridging is an important and viable option. The loan can be secured against land or property, enabling you to take up opportunities where large sums of money need to be raised over a short period of time.
Tip 9: Debt consolidation for Businesses
Managing finances can be problematic, particularly when you have lots of commitments to pay a wide variety of costs. As debts start to pile up, a short term bridging loan can allow you to consolidate outstanding invoices to avoid such headaches.
Debt consolidation may take the form of a second charge commercial bridging loan, which can provide a business with the vital short term security, cash flow and time required to enable it to sort out its finances in the longer term.
This approach will also enable your business to preserve relationships with existing suppliers while restructuring its debts into one straightforward and structured payment arrangement.
The message is simple: short-term debts can be paid with a bridging loan making it easier to resolve and structure your finances in the long run.
Tip 10: Finance your Business move
Relocating a business can be both stressful and costly – but it doesn’t need to be. A bridging loan is the ideal finance for companies looking to relocate to new premises.
A short term bridging loan means that you can borrow the right amount of money to cover the duration of the move only. The loan can also help with the associated costs of the move, in terms of hiring removal firms, setting up I.T or refurbishing the new premises.
This is where bridging finance is particularly beneficial as it can help ensure that you do not need to dip into company cash-flow to fund the move.
With a bridging loan, you can pay back the money when the move is complete and the company starts to reap the rewards for the relocation.
