What is a bridging loan?

A bridging loan is a short-term secured loan typically used to ‘bridge the gap’ in your finances. You use the loan to cover the cost of a payment that cannot be deferred, while waiting for other funds to become available.

Bridging loans often have a short repayment term. This could be anything from six months to 24 months, with the exact conditions stipulated in the financial agreement. Bridging loans are more expensive than other types of secured loans, but the trade-off is the speed at which they can be arranged. The approval process is much faster than other forms of long-term finance. If successful, you can access funds shortly after the application is submitted

As a type of secured loan, you do have to provide some form of security.


This is usually a property or other asset.

Why might you need a bridging loan?

Bridging loans are regularly used in the property sector, be it by landlords, developers or homeowners. There are lots of scenarios where you need to pay for a particular cost, but your money is tied up in an asset that has yet to become liquid.


This might happen if:

  • You buy a property at auction

  • You want to expand your portfolio

  • Your buyer has withdrawn, but you don’t want the chain to break down

  • You want to complete refurbishments or renovations before selling a property

  • You want to purchase a property before selling a property you currently own

  • You want to buy a property not suitable for a conventional mortgage

  • You want to secure a property purchase but have not yet got a mortgage approved in principle
