The duration bridge loans will depend upon the lender, as a general rule these terms are between 6 – 12 months. As with most short term loans, the interest rate on a bridge loan is generally a little bit higher than that of a bank loan due to the risk involved. Again, this will differ from lender to lender, however, when you apply for a bridge loan with Bridge Direct, you can be assured that they will try to find you the best deal for you and your situation.

Bridge loans can be used to help in many, many situations, and for both business and residential applications. For example;

How can a Business owner will make use of Bridge Loans?

A lack of funding is the main issue many businesses are not able to market products sufficiently, further develop existing products or even develop new innovative products and services.

What are the differences between traditional loans and Bridge Loans?

The biggest issue with the approval process for traditional bank loans and mortgages is down to the lengthy credit checks and due diligence. Due to the recent economic crisis, banks have become more and more wary about who they lend their money too, and as a result the checks now do take longer to complete. With the increased set criteria, if you have any history of bad or adverse credit you will more than likely not even get past the first hurdle.

Where can I find and apply for a Bridge Loan?
