What is Bridging?

Bridging Loans are a form of short-term finance, designed to help a business or individual take advantage of property investment opportunities or quickly access finance to resolve an immediate funding issue. The ‘bridge’ covers the gap between needing funds and being in a position to repay or recover those funds via a property sale or refinance onto a long-term loan or mortgage. A key feature of bridging is that the finance is available at very short notice.
