Bridging Finance

Bridging loans from experienced property finance professionals

Bridging loans are a short-term finance solution designed to ‘bridge’ a gap while the borrower secures alternative funding or a sale. In recent years bridging finance has gone from being viewed as a niche product, often used as a last resort, to a multi-purpose form of lending. This can include auction purchase, refurbishment projects, development, non-status and even un-mortgageable properties. They can be invaluable in facilitating a property purchase that otherwise would not be possible.

Bath & West Finance offers bespoke bridging loans from £50,000 to £2,000,000 over 3 months to 18 months. As experienced property professionals we can offer a more flexible approach to our lending than many less experienced companies including second charge lending. We are able to make immediate decisions over the phone and provide funding, when required, in a matter of days.
