Short-term bridge loans are designed to be exactly as they sound, a short-term funding solution, designed to ‘bridge the gap’ until a more permanent solution comes along. The duration of a bridge loans usually ranges between 6-12 months, however, these are not set in stone.

Many property developers regularly use bridge loans to help finance the purchase of a property while the sale of an existing one is still pending. They can then begin any remedial works on the new property without having to worry about having to sell the existing property and hold off works.

With property purchasing, especially in chains, completion dates rarely go as expected. So by using a bridging loan as an advance to fill this financial gap, properties can be purchased, and turned around for sale or rent much more quickly, saving money and time.

This means as long as you hold enough capital in the asset being used as security, then you may be eligible for a loan.

They become increasingly wary or may even reject your application straight away if you have had a history of bad or adverse credit.
