Bridging finance


A property developer has avoided paying a de-fault rate on a bridging loan thanks to a £55,000 re-bridge loan on a property valued at £360,00 with Holme Finance Bridging Solutions allowing development to progress.

The developer purchased the property earlier this year at auction using a bridging loan with the intention of splitting the property into two self-contained flats, selling one off to clear the debt and retaining one as an investment.

Unfortunately unexpected hold-ups in the planning and development processes meant a delay in the development which lead to an inability to keep to the original bridging loan terms.

Ian Broadbent, Director at HFBS says: “The client approached us after his initial bridging loan lender refused to consider an extension to the term without applying a default rate, nearly double the original rate, and charging fees again.

“We were able to assist and redeem the existing bridging loan on time whilst providing the developer with a six-month term on the re-bridge and plenty of time to achieve a sale on one flat to repay the loan.Bridging finance

HFBS are always more cautious when re-bridging a bridge however after meeting the developer face to face they were satisfied the project would be successful once back on track.
