Bridging loans are a short-term funding solution for property transactions to help cover a period between buying a new home and selling your old home.
There are two types of bridging loan, open and closed. With an open loan there is no fixed repayment date, however you would normally pay off the loan within one year.
With a closed loan there is a fixed repayment date ?this kind of loan tends to be used if you have exchanged contracts but are waiting for a property sale to complete.
The lender regardless of which type of loan you choose will expect to see a payment plan and evidence of finance such as the sale of you existing property.
Bridging loans are typically expensive. Usually there will be set-up fee so it is advisable to only take one out if you are confident that you won?t need it for a long period of time.

As always I found The Finance Detectives extremely helpful and easy to use. With working full time being able to communicate via email and send documents in the same manner was a godsend. I will always use The Finance Detectives for all my Mortgage and Insurance needs as they provide a first class service which is value for money and with little or no hassle. I have in the past recommended The Finance Detectives to friends and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you again for all your help and assistance in sorting the new Mortgage deal. R Tucker,
The Financial Detectives were a joy to have working on our behalf from beginning to end. With professionalism, an ability to calm a frazzled homeowner (me) and no apparent exasperation at all they managed to negotiate a very competitive product for us, consolidating much of our debt and ensuring five years of financial stability mortgage-wise for our family. No easy feat as we were not the easiest of applications due to complicated work situations and the aforementioned debt. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team to anyone, and will certainly return to them for a new mortgage in 5 years time, although I fear they may run and hide from us!
