BRIDGING LOANS

KNOWLEDGE BASE

Commercial   bridging   loans,   as   their   name   implies,   are   quite   simply   bridging   loans   that   are   secured   against   commercial   property.   In   common   with   other types   of   bridging   they   are   used   to   obtain   funds   quickly,   either   to   purchase   a   property   or   to   release   funds   quickly   from   a   property   the   borrower   already owns. Typical commercial properties are office buildings, shops or factory units. To   qualify   for   a   commercial   bridging   loan   the   property   used   as   security   will   need   to   be   at   least   40%   commercial.      So,   for   example,   if   the   property   is   a   shop with   a   flat   above,   the   commercial   part   of   the   property   would   have   to   represent   more   than   40%   of   the   total   property.   In   an   example   such   as   this,   lenders would   also   normally   insist   on   the   flat   having   separate   access   from   the   shop   and   it   will   probably   be   referred   to   as   a   semi-commercial   bridging   loan   by   the lender. Commercial   bridging   loans   are   a   great   option   for   property   investors   and   private   landlords.   They   can   be   used   to   acquire   a   property   whereupon   the investor/landlord   will   usually   refurbish   or   renovate   to   bring   the   property   to   the   required   standard   for   renting.   This   will   obviously   enhance   the   value   and once   work   is   completed   the   property   can   either   be   sold   or   let.   An   improved   property   with   an   enhanced   value   and   tenants   that   have   been   in   place   and paying   rent   for   6-9   months   becomes   a   very   attractive   proposition   for   a   lender   offering   Buy   to   Let   mortgages.   The   Buy   to   Let   Mortgage,   once   obtained,   will be used to redeem the bridging loan. As   well   as   being   used   to   acquire   residential   investment   properties   commercial   bridging   loans   can   just   as   easily   be   used   to   provide   the   financing   needed   to purchase   a   commercial   unit.   Once   again,   it’s   very   common   for   the   unit   to   be   refurbished   or   more   comprehensively   renovated   prior   to   either   a   sale   or letting.   If   the   property   is   sold   the   bridging   loan   will   be   redeemed   from   the   sale   proceeds   and   if   it’s   let,   then   a   long-term   commercial   mortgage   will   usually   be obtained to redeem the bridging loan.   So, when would a commercial bridging loan be a good option? Buying a commercial property Buying a semi-commercial property Buying a property at auction Buying a new business Buying brownfield sites before planning is approved Refinancing an existing commercial property to take advantage of a time limited opportunity Refinancing an existing commercial property to provide a cash injection into a business Refinancing an existing commercial property to resolve a creditor issue the business has In chain break scenario’s which happen to both commercial and residential property chains Of   course,   there   are   a   multitude   of   other   uses,   but   the   common   appeal   of   commercial   bridging   loans   is   the   speed   at   which   they   can   be   arranged.   Traditional high   street   lenders   can   take   weeks   or   even   months   to   review   a   commercial   property   loan   application   loan.   Specialist   bridging   lenders   can   deliver   finance   in days, although it’s important to remember this is reflected in the price. Bridging   loan   rates   are   higher   than   longer   term   interest   rates   and   commercial   bridging   loans   usually   a   little   more   expensive   than   residential   bridging   loans. Consequently, it is important to have a clear exit strategy for repayment of the loan. Commercial   bridging   loans   are   hugely   versatile,   fast   and   transparent   and   they   can   be   used   by   individuals,   limited   companies,   foreign   nationals   and   offshore companies investing in the UK. They play a key role in driving the UK economy. Still unsure and need to explore your options? Why not consult an expert?
