How To Secure Bridging Finance Quickly

For property investors in the UK, securing financing quickly and efficiently is crucial to taking advantage of investment opportunities. One viable option that can provide timely funding is a bridging loan.

Bridging loans are short-term loans designed to bridge the gap between purchasing a new property and selling an existing one.

In this blog post, we will discuss essential steps to secure a bridging loan quickly and efficiently, enabling property investors to seize investment opportunities without delay.

Understand Your Requirements

Before embarking on the loan application process, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of your requirements. Determine the financing you need, the repayment terms you can comfortably manage, and the duration you require for the loan. Assess your financial situation and evaluate your exit strategy, which could include selling the property, refinancing, or repaying the loan from other sources.

Prepare Documentation

Gather all the necessary documentation before approaching a lender. Standard documents required for a bridging loan application include proof of identity, property details, evidence of income, bank statements, and a comprehensive exit strategy. Having these documents readily available will expedite the application process. With Lendlord’s Documents module, you can store all your property-related documents in one secure location and share them instantly. Watch our video tutorial on the My Documents module here

Assess Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratio:

Lenders typically assess the loan-to-value ratio to determine the loan amount they are willing to provide. As a property investor, be aware of the LTV requirements of different lenders and choose one that aligns with your investment goals. Maintaining a lower LTV ratio can increase the likelihood of loan approval and help negotiate better interest rates.

Present a Solid Exit Strategy

 A robust exit strategy is crucial when applying for a bridging loan. Lenders want assurance that you have a clear plan to repay the loan within the agreed-upon term. This could involve selling the property, refinancing with a traditional mortgage, or utilizing other sources of funding. Demonstrate a well-thought-out and realistic exit strategy to instill confidence in lenders.

Expedite the Valuation Process

The valuation of the property is a critical step in the loan application process. Engage a reliable and experienced surveyor to conduct the valuation promptly. Inform the surveyor about the urgency of the valuation, as it will help expedite the process. Efficiently completing this step is vital to securing the bridging loan quickly. – Lendlord offers a FREE valuation for customers who apply by the end of June 2023.  a complimentary valuation for your property – a £495 discount!

Seek Pre-Approval

To streamline the loan application process and enhance your credibility, consider seeking pre-approval for a bridging loan. Pre-approval provides confirmation from the lender that you meet their initial criteria and are eligible for a loan of a certain amount. This step can give you a competitive edge and accelerate the loan approval process when you find a suitable property investment opportunity.  In Lendlord we provide a  Pre-Approval in less than 24 hours, ensuring quick and efficient access to the funds you need.

Communicate Effectively

Maintaining open and transparent communication with the lender is essential for swift and efficient loan approval. Respond promptly to any requests for additional documentation or information. Keep the lines of communication open throughout the process, seeking clarification on any queries and providing updates as required.
