“Bridging Finance or Bridging Loans as they are more commonly referred to are normally shorter-term loans taken out whilst waiting for larger or longer term business finance solutions to be arranged.” Although some companies provide bridging loans to consumers, Hamilton Wood & Company only provide Commercial Bridging Loans.
In a business capacity, bridging loans are extremely helpful to companies who need to complete the purchase of a new commercial property before selling their existing building. Bridging loans are typically suited to property developers or commercial landlords who manage and control a portfolio of properties.
Bridging loans offer businesses quick access to finance on shorter terms and so they are a very efficient way of securing business finance. Commercial Bridging Loans are also recognised by the term ‘bridge funding’ with both terms meaning the same thing and therefore they are interchangeable.
When should you
use Bridging Loans?
If you are a property developer or invest in properties bridging loans are a quick and convenient way to secure business finance however as the loans are shorter-termed, they often attract a slightly higher APR.
