Bridging loans are short term loans that can bridge the financial gap and secure your next property. Bridge loans have a variety of uses but are especially used by property investors and developers in the Bournemouth area. This is because, for investors looking to purchase an asset or business property, a traditional mortgage may not be suitable.

Reasons to use a bridging loan:

  • Unhabitable property to be developed for business purposes
  • Property in poor condition/lacking necessary facilities
  • If property is undergoing ‘change of use’
  • Refinance a property
  • Chain break
  • Purchasing property at auction

If you are looking to invest or develop property in the Bournemouth area, a bridging loan with Glide might be perfect for you.

Access fast bridging loans
for commercial properties

Bridging loans are ideal for commercial use. Loans with Glide are unregulated, which means we can only offer bridging finance on properties that will not be habited.

Purchasing property for commercial use or as an asset may not be suitable for a traditional mortgage, which is where a bridge loan can step in and help bridge the gap financially, until you re-mortgage the property. Purchasing commercial property in Bournemouth is a valuable asset and investment opportunity.

Who can bridging loans help?

Bridging finance with Glide is aimed to help property developers and investors secure their next business asset. Purchasing property is a worthwhile investment, but it can be difficult to secure traditional mortgages on some properties.

As an investor or developer, time is crucial. Having your funding secured through a bridging loan can help you meet those impending deadlines, pay off financial obligations, and ensure you secure the property of your dreams quickly, securely, and hassle free.

Our online application takes less than 5 minutes and can see you funded in as little as 5 days.

Why would you use a
bridging loan?

Bridging loans can be used for a host of reasons, which are listed above. However, we’ve broken down some scenarios below.

Auction properties may not be able to be mortgaged, which means you have to find the funding elsewhere to secure the property and ensure you have sufficient funding to get the property into a mortgage state.

A bridging loan can bridge the financial gap and ensure you obtain your next investment opportunity. Additionally, auction properties maintain a 28-day period to complete the purchase, so having your funding secured prior to auction can make a huge difference, allowing you to bid confidently.

Other instances to use a bridge loan may be when a property is in an un-mortgageable state. If the property does not have a bathroom or a kitchen, it will be un-mortgageable. You can use your bridging loan to make the necessary developments to the property to get it into a mortgageable state, mortgage the property, and then use that mortgage to pay off your bridging loan. Simple.

Bridging loans are beneficial for short-term lending, if you need access to funding quickly, or if you have tight financial deadlines. A bridge loan can be the perfect financial bridge to secure your investment goals.
