At Glide, we want to offer everyone the opportunity to actualise their visions and secure their property goals. We do not have an ‘ideal’ borrower in mind, and we will make our decisions based on your unique circumstances. All we ask for is the LTV of the security property and a viable exit strategy.
If you have previously been denied bridging finance, a Glide loan could help you to bridge that financial gap and achieve your property goals much easier.

At Glide, we don’t ask for silly lending criteria in order to borrow from us. We consider all applications, including ‘unconventional’ or non-typical borrowers. Apply online to receive your unique terms.

If you’re a property developer or investor in Kent, a Glide loan can help you bridge the financial gap, secure that property and see you funded in as little as 5 days.

Why would you use a bridging loan?

Bridging loans are used primarily for business purposes but property investors and developers. The main aim of a bridge loan is to ‘bridge’ a financial gap.

For auction properties, for example, you have a 28-day period to complete the purchase. However, if you did not have the funding ready to go, a bridge loan can pay this off for you while you arrange the rest of your finances. Meaning you can secure the property and have some time to figure out your finances. This is especially useful with expensive or in demand property in Kent. The difference between securing your ideal property or losing it, often, is funding.

At Glide, we offer bridging finance to everyone. If you’re an ‘unconventional’ borrower, a Glide loan may be right for you. If you’re looking to invest or develop in Kent, contact Glide for fair bridging solutions.

Other instances to use a bridging loan include purchasing an un-mortgageable property. You will not be able to secure a mortgage on some properties, which can leave funds scarce. Using bridging loans to bridge this gap can ensure you secure your ideal property and have enough cash to fix it up and get it into a mortgageable state, secure a mortgage and pay off your bridge loan.

Alternatively, you may need short term funds on a basis of only a month. Bridging finance with Glide sees you funded for as little as you need, we don’t have a minimum term. Need it for a month, you’ll only pay interest on that month – no minimum terms here.

A real example of how Glide can help you

Glide were approached by a borrower who was purchasing a property for £2.5 million and had a buy-to-let mortgage for £1 million all lined up ready to go. At the 11th hour an issue arose during the legal due diligence that meant the borrower was unable to complete, and at risk of losing their £250,000 deposit.

Glide stepped in to lend the £1,000,000 with no arrangement fees (saving the borrower £20,000) and were able to complete in just 3 days. The borrower then had the time to resolve the issue and refinanced onto the long term buy to let mortgage 3 weeks later, saving them £250,000 in their deposit, several sleepless nights, and ongoing hassle!

Other funding options may incur unreasonable charges, hidden fees and fixed contracts that make you pay more than you need to. At Glide , our bridging finance is fee free, secured on no minimum term, and we work with you to find a solution that works for both us and you. A Glide loan is the easiest way to secure your development or investment opportunities in the Kent area.
