What is the process of getting a bridging loan and how long does it take?

Before you get a bridging loan, you need to decide if a bridging loan is the best option for you.
Bridging loans exist to help people complete the purchase of a property before selling their current home by offering them funds at a high-interest rate.

The first step to take when you have decided that a bridging loan is the best option for you is to get into contact with a broker, who’ll schedule some type of consultation. The consultation will help to highlight what you want the loan for, how long you want it for and how much you can repay a month.

After you have spoken to your broker and you have worked out the details, the broker will go to some lenders. This will then after a short amount of time you will have a quote. The quote will often have everything you need to know on it such as Interest rates, fees, the value of the loan and terms and conditions.

The next step is the valuation and legal work. A valuer will visit the property to write a report on the value to make sure that covers the amount of the loan. This is not always necessary if there has been a recent survey or valuation on the property. Once the valuation has been completed then the solicitor can start their legal work. This includes proof of identity and financial documents.

Once all the previous steps are completed then the funds can be released. This can be transferred to your bank or if the loan is used to purchase property can be given to the seller of the property.
This could take up to a few days or even a few weeks depending on circumstances.
