Bridging Loans for Properties

By: Eva Baldwyn

Property deals require large amounts of money to make any transactions. And if the buyer is not able to arrange the necessary cash in stipulated time, he may lose the opportunity to someone else. are highly beneficial in filling the cash gap faced by the buyer and he can go ahead with his opportunity of property deal.

Bridging loans are a support to the borrower when he is in need of large amount of money but is not able to arrange it on his own. He can take up this loan and pay the price of the property and repay the loan when he is able to arrange the cash. Any property can be bought using bridging loans like residential property, business sites, foreign property etc. also, property which cannot be mortgaged due to its bad condition can be bought through bridging loans.

Bridging loans are secured loans which require some asset of the borrower to be pledged as collateral. In this case, the property of the borrower which is being bought with the money is pledged as collateral. As soon as the borrower is able to arrange the money for repayment, he can get the title back on his name.

Bridging loans are short term loans that are borrowed for a term of 1-12 months and if the borrower is able to arrange the money in a few days, he can go and repay it back to the lender. Bridging loans are interest-only loans meaning that they have to pay the interest only to the borrower through the term of the loan, and at the end the principal amount has to be repaid.

Bad credit borrowers can also take up bridging loans to fulfill their property cash gaps. The lenders are assured of repayment as they also have to pledge collateral. Thus they get approval for the loans but a slightly higher rate is charged. This high rate can be lowered by proper research among all loan deals offered.

With bridging loans, it has now become very easy for the buyers of property to take a step further and make their deals.
