- Peter Tillet
“Andrews nature and experience allowed for him to cut through some problems that we found with the other professionals. IE the solicitors and the banks”.
- Alan Overton

Why use property development finance?
With a property development project, getting from start to finish as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality is important to ensure both viability and profitability. With a traditional mortgage, you will be charged an early redemption penalty if you either sell the property within the tie-in period or switch to a standard residential or commercial mortgage (whether buy-to-let or owner-occupier).
A short-term finance solution like a bridging loan does not feature these tie-ins.
The costs involved in purchasing then refurbishing/renovating commercial or residential property are significant. Budgets required for new-build properties can be even greater. Few property developers will be able to attract the lump sum funding they need from investors; a bridging loan is the perfect way to secure the funding you need in the shortest amount of time.
Bridging loan myths
- Bridging loans are last resorts – no! Bridging loans are flexible, convenient and accessible funding.
- Bridging loans are always risky – no! However, there is still risk associated with any loan. We recommend taking advice on exit strategies from an FCA regulated and Cemap Qualified Broker.
- Bridging loans are expensive – no! Only when they are not repaid in full and on time.
Can I get a bridging loan with poor credit?
Rapid Bridging’s lenders are able to lend to those applicants that have a poor credit history, including those with arrears, bankruptcies, CCJs, defaults, IVAs, response orders, statutory demands, winding up orders and more.
In these cases, lenders will often require borrowers to provide a wider range of exit strategies because of the concern that they will be unable to obtain the finance necessary to repay the loan. Please do not be put off from applying – we have years of experience helping clients with poor credit ratings find the funding they need.
The relationships we build with our customers are incredibly important to us. Hear what they have to say, and learn why people across the UK rely on Rapid Bridging time and time again.
