If you're looking to buy a new house or apartment but haven't yet sold your present home, you can 'bridge' the period between purchasing your new home and selling your previous one by taking out this loan. When you sell your home, you use the proceeds to repay the principal and interest all at once.
You repay the loan from the proceeds when you sell your home.
Fixed rate of interest
The rate of interest remains the same throughout the term of the loan.
You can repay all or part of the loan at any time.
Why go for a bridging loan?
Renovation costs can also be covered
Provided you have put another property up for sale, you can also use a bridging loan to finance renovations or alterations. In that case you draw down the loan in instalments as the works progress. You don't pay any extra charges for this, and simply have to submit the necessary invoices. You must draw down the full loan amount within a maximum of 12 months after signing the contract.
Early repayment at any time
The maximum term of a bridging loan is 12 months. However, you can repay all or part of the loan at any time, in which case you pay less interest. If you repay the loan early because your old home has been sold, you don't have to pay a reinvestment fee.
