Bridging Finance


Bridging finance has experienced huge growth year on year which is mainly due to a lack of appetite and the tightening of lending criteria by mainstream lenders.

Lenders have diversified their product ranges to offer a suite of bridging products to cater for almost any scenario that requires short-term property backed finance. This, coupled with an influx of new lenders entering the market, an abundance of funding and a genuine appetite to fund deals have all resulted in increased competition amongst lenders and the lowest bridging rates the market has ever seen.
