Frequently Asked Questions about land bridging arrangements
What does the term bridging loan mean?
A bridging loan is a type of short term finance that enables businesses to fulfil a shortfall in funding in order to remain operational. This could be a solution to keep cash flow steady while you wait to obtain final planning approval for a property development project or in order to purchase materials required in order to make a start with construction while longer-term funding arrangements are finalised.
Is a bridging loan a good idea?
The most appropriate finance will depend on a number of factors relating to your project as well as your financial situation and history. Bridging finance can be very useful when applied in the right circumstances.

How does an Australian bridging loan work?
This type of loan works by providing a pre-arranged finance amount on a short term agreement. The lender will receive repayment of the original amount plus interest at a disclosed rate once the loan recipient has secured alternative capital by way of payment on completion of the project or finalisation of longer-term funding. This is also known as an exit strategy. Here’s a working example of how bridging finance helped a previous client:
