Interested in Bridging Loan or Second Charge Mortgage Advice?

Bridging loans are commonly used for enabling a property transaction to complete whilst the borrower is waiting for a property, in which they have equity, to complete its sale (auctions and rescuing buying chains are good examples). There are many other reasons though, such as:

  • Paying tax bills
  • Raising capital quickly
  • Buying an investment property e.g. auctions, refurbishments, land without planning permission
  • Looking to purchase a property but are yet to sell their existing one e.g. downsizing
  • Want to convert an estate into several separate properties
  • Wish to acquire an uninhabitable property or extend a lease
  • Helping Buy To Let landlords expand their property portfolio if a property isn't yet in a rentable condition

Second charge mortgages allow you to use any equity you have in your home as security against another loan. This might help you meet an unexpected bill, or pay something extra off at cheaper borrowing rates than using credit cards or unsecured loans.

Useful options to consider, but always with the benefit of qualified and experienced independent mortgage advice.
