Holme Finance Bridging Solutions (HFBS) fund a developer’s derelict ambition and it pays off with the property valued with a projected one hundred and forty five thousand pound profit.

When a developer saw the potential in a derelict property bought for £80,000 cash, HFBS were approached to advance of £30,895 as a first charge so he could start the development. Three weeks after the developer was ready for the final tranche of £26,895 to complete the work.

Dan Yendall-Collings, senior underwriter at HFBS says: “This was a derelict property, you could see right through the second floor, the attic and see daylight! He was clearly a very experienced developer because after spending the first advance it was watertight, the damp proofing complete, a new roof, and new windows and doors. The joists and floors had been reinstated with a staircase and the outside had been rendered with the garden landscaped – surprisingly all within three weeks.

“Spending the first drawdown had increased the value, as confirmed by our valuer, to £140,000 and upon completion of the project the property is expected to be worth in the region of £200,000-225,000.

HFBS advanced the first bridging loan of £30,895 and then a second of £25,000, plus fees, to complete the internal fittings, kitchen and bathroom, central heating system and final decorations. A valuation was required due to the extreme nature of the property but from application to funds issued the first deal completed in 10 days and the second in just seven.

HFBS issued a £30,895 bridging loan as a first charge over a 12 month term at 1.75% per month plus £25,000 as a second charge over a 11 month term at 1.75% per month.

Uninterrupted Service Whilst Demand Remains

Dear Introducer,

As you will be aware we have significant USP’s particularly in respect of our processes which allow for industry leading completion times. These rely heavily on our ability to be office based and we are therefore delighted to be included (as a short term lender) in the government’s exceptions to the ‘stay at home’ message.

We know how disruptive a third major lock down is likely to be and it is with this in mind we wish to assure our valued introducers that we WILL continue to provide a completely uninterrupted service whilst a demand remains.

We will NOT be amending criteria, nor will we be changing our process.

In short we at HFBS recognise we have the best supporting intermediaries in the industry and are committed to supporting you through this difficult time.

Feel free to get in touch on

We look forward to receiving your enquiries.

The recent completion of a £205,000 advance, secured against a purchase, and completed in just three working days from initial contact prompted the following response from one of our significant introducers:

“Here @ Y3S we always have a positive approach, regardless of time constraints and tight deadlines. This case in particular was a challenge to say the least. But we knew, if we had the right partner and the right attitude, then this is something we could achieve. This is not the first time with have used HFBS, so we knew we had the right partner on board. From start to finish, Ian & his team mirrored our own enthusiasm to get this one done”

Mr Chris Warner, First4Commercial

We have worked with Holme Finance Bridging Solutions (HFBS) on many occasions over the years, primarily for smaller bridging loans of between £10k and £200k. Without doubt they are the best performing bridging company we have used. They always do what they say and move quickly to complete a deal and pay the commission. If its not one for them, you are told at the outset so you can immediately try and place elsewhere

Mr Gary Latham,

Ian always finds time to chat through each potential deal, always honest in his assessment, and if he says he can do it, he will, promptly and efficiently! How refreshing in today’s market!

Mr Mike Wipfler, Lodhi Finance
