Short Term Bridging Loans


Short Term Bridging Loans from Aquamore

A short term bridging loan is a popular finance option for property developers and investors as it offers a stronger, more flexible position when it comes to land and property acquisition. Bridging finance can provide a solution to a number of circumstances. It may be used to complete an unfinished development project in order to release capital that had previously been restricted. Bridging loans can also give investors the opportunity to purchase land or property at auction. Another reason bridging loans can be useful is that they often provide capital that wouldn’t be available through a mainstream lender due to the condition of the property or site in question.


Loan Terms and Repayments

Terms and repayments of a short term bridging loan will depend on the individual circumstances of the organisation applying for the loan. The amount available to borrow ranges from $200k to $7.5million. First mortgage rates start from 6% per annum while second mortgage rates are offered from 1.2% per month with our secured loans incurring an establishment fee of 2.2%. Our case study below highlights one example of a bridging loan structure including the recourse agreement and loan term.
