Can people with bad credit and take out a bridge loan?

The simple answer is yes! We help people do just that. One customer was able to:

Secure a bridging loan of almost £600,000 over a 12-month term to improve his financial situation

Receive the required funding on the same day

Sell his property to buy a smaller home and pay back his arrears to the original lender

Customer story

This customer’s remortgage case was passed to us after his existing lender refused to grant him a second charge. This was due to existing adverse in the form of missed mortgage payments. He was also struggling for a regular remortgage due to the loan amount, his age and existing issues within his business.

We took over this case and worked closely with the customer to match him to another lender which was happy to provide the required funding and the loan was paid to the him on the same day.

This meant the customer could gain control of his financial situation, using the bridging loan to clear his existing arrears with the original lender. The customer was then able to sell his property and downsize, making his finances more manageable going forward.

When is best for a bridge loan

When your client needs finance to purchase, they may need it quickly, the answer lies in bridging finance. Whether a regulated transaction or unregulated, bridging finance could be invaluable to your client, helping them achieve opportunities to secure a home or fulfil investment opportunities.

  • Light, medium and/or heavy refurbishment, where investors renovating a property need to make it fit for purpose or mortgageable with a mainstream lender, or even to develop property to increase its potential value of yield, think HMO or similar
  • Auction purchase, when a property is purchased at auction, an investor will need a quick solution so that they do not miss the opportunity and will need to complete within 28 days.
  • When the sale and subsequent purchase are not continuous and may fall through. Known as chain breaking, your client may purchase the next property prior to the completion of the sale of the first property
