## How do I use the bridging loan calculator?

To use the calculator, fill in each box as accurately as possible and press calculate to receive your results instantly.

• Property Value – This is the value of the property to be used as security for the loan.
• Outstanding Mortgage – This box only needs to be completed if the mortgage is not going to be repaid by the bridging loan. If there is a mortgage outstanding that will be repaid in full, please leave the figure as ‘0’.
• Loan Amount Required – This is the net loan required – the amount you need to receive before any fees or interest are added to the loan.
• Interest Rate – This is the interest rate charged for the bridging loan. The calculator, as with most bridging loans calculates based on a monthly interest rate.
• Lender Arrangement Fee – This is the fee charged by the lender for arranging the facility. Input the percentage charged by the lender.
• Lender Exit Fee – Some lenders charge ‘exit fees’ on their facility. Again, this is calculated from a percentage, so please input the percentage charged.

#### Gross & net loan

The gross loan is the total amount borrowed including all fees, charges and rolled up interest.

The net loan is the amount that is released to you and does not include any fees, charges or interest.

When calculating how much money you will be able to use, use the net loan. When calculating how much money you will repay to the lender, use the gross loan.

#### Total interest

Total interest is simply the amount of interest charged over the course of the loan. This is commonly added to the loan and paid when the bridging loan is repaid. Alternatively, it can be deducted from the loan, meaning the net loan is reduced by the cost of the interest.

#### Loan to value (net loan)

The loan to value (net loan) is designed to tell you what the loan to value of your borrowing is. Loan to value is a tool used by lenders to express the ratio of the amount borrowed as a percentage of the property value. This figure is important, as often the maximum loan will be restricted by the maximum loan to value available.
