What is a Bridging Loan?

We’ll give you an example. Let’s say you’re looking to buy a property but it’s going to need some work to get it to a mortgageable state. You’ve tried a mortgage and it was a swift no. You need quick access to money, and you know this project is worthwhile, so you don’t want to hang around.

You can take out a Bridging loan while you fix it up and get it into a better state. Once it’s in the right shape, you can mortgage the property and pay off your short-term bridging loan. A to B, simple, swift, smart.

A bridging loan essentially builds a bridge for you to get to where you need. Bridging finance is a short-term solution that gives you access to cash quickly. You’ll never miss out on a new commercial venture or a great opportunity with Glide.
