BRIDGING LOANS MENU

We pride ourselves on making the process of securing a bridging loan as simple as possible for our clients. ABC Finance Ltd will take you through every step to ensure you’re making the right decision in terms of product and lender for the best possible rate.

To gain a better understanding of the benefits of bridging finance, we have a selection of in-depth guides as well as a comparison page to help you find the right product.

The Process

1Get in touch with us by either enquiring through our website or giving us a call on 0800 088 6008 for a no-obligation conversation with a bridging loan expert. We will talk through your circumstances and offer initial terms on the lowest rate available to you.
2We will send out a decision in principle within two hours outlining the terms available from the best bridging loan companies including any fees and charges that may be payable. Before issuing terms we always ensure the lender will be appropriate in terms of both costs and how quickly they can complete the transaction.
3Once you are happy with the terms and understand exactly how the product works we will start the application with the lender. We would then instruct the valuation (if one is needed on your application) and legal process as soon as they are happy with the information received. In cases that are less urgent, we are able to delay the legal work until you are happy with the survey results.
4Once this work’s done you are free to draw down on your bridging loan and complete on your property transaction / refinance.

Criteria

We work with bridging loan lenders across the market to secure the right bridging loan for you.

The information below is intended to act as a guide and is not meant to be an exhaustive list of the facilities we have available. If your loan does not meet the criteria set out below, talk to one of our advisors to find out how we can help.

Loan Sizes

£25,000 upwards – with no maximum loan.

Term

We can fund loans from 1 month to 36 months. FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) regulated loans are restricted to a maximum term of 12 months.

Acceptable Security

We can lend against the following security types:

  • Houses
  • Flats
  • Mixed use properties
  • Offices
  • Retail premises
  • Industrial
  • Hotels
  • Pubs
  • Restaurants
  • Farms
  • Hotels
  • Care homes
  • Land (with or without planning)

Where the property is in a poor state of repair, we have several lenders who are willing to lend. ABC Finance Ltd. can also lend against unmortgageable property where required.

Acceptable Borrowers

We can lend to the following borrowers:

  • Private borrowers
  • Pension funds
  • Partnerships
  • Limited companies
  • Offshore companies

Our minimum applicant age is 18 years old and we work with lenders who do not impose a maximum age.

Locations

We can fund applications through the UK on our standard plans. ABC Finance Ltd. has funding lines in place that are available across the world, for information, please talk through your requirements with an adviser.

Credit History

We can fund clients regardless of credit history. In situations where credit history is particularly bad, interest rates may increase slightly as not all lenders will be willing to lend.

Loan Purpose

We can fund bridging loans for any legal purpose. Our loans are often used to:

  • Fund property acquisition
  • To fund investment property purchases
  • Release capital for property refurbishment
  • Purchase a new property before the sale of an existing property is completed
  • Pay urgent tax liabilities
  • Provide a cash injection for business purposes

Income Evidence

Where interest payments are rolled up, or deducted from the loan, we do not generally require proof of income for unregulated applications. For FCA regulated loans, income evidence may be required for confirmation of exit.

Monthly Payments

We work with lenders who can add the interest into the loan, to avoid the need for monthly payments. Alternatively, if you would prefer to make the monthly payments, we do have funders who are able to facilitate this, where affordable.

Exit Strategy

We can consider any realistic exit strategy.
