A bridging loan is a flexible, short-term loan usually secured against property, where the borrower agrees to pay back the loan plus interest by an agreed date. They are typically used to provide finance for property purchases while a borrower is awaiting the completion of a contingent sale of an existing property, or simply where other finance is scarce.
Since bridging loans are usually offered on the basis of the security and the proposed exit rather than the borrower’s ability to meet regular repayments, bridging can assist in a wide variety of situations.
