Bridging loan case Study 1

October 2020

Mr & Mrs H were both over 60 & retired. Due to their age & pension incomes, a traditional purchase mortgage wouldn’t be available.

Their house was on the market for £900k (with no mortgage outstanding) & had been for a couple of months. They saw the perfect downsizing property on the market for £600k and had savings of £100k to put towards the purchase.  We at Friends Capital,  agreed to a bridging loan of £500k to secure the purchase, thus avoiding the need to reduce the price to enable a quick sale.

Mr N was due to move into a new-build property last week but his buyer`s chain fell through.

He was under pressure from the developers to complete the deal, as this was the second property chain-break and they had other interested buyers. With a new-build property price of £450k, his current house sale agreed at £300k (with a small balance left on his mortgage) and with savings to use we arranged a bridging loan quote for £200k within an hour & a decision in principle the same day, funds were released to complete the chain within 10 working days.

Bridging Loan Case Study 3

December 2020

Mr & Mrs M are both retired. They have been approached to buy a converted barn close to them by the current owner who wants a quick sale.

They approached us to arrange short term finance, as they did not qualify for a traditional residential mortgage and their current property was not yet on the market, we advised that a bridging loan would be the best way to raise monies quickly.

The purchase price was agreed at £450,000. We raised £200,000 for Mr & Mrs M to add to their savings to enable them to purchase the converted barn before they waited for their house to sell. They are now in a position where they can wait and command a fair price for their exiting property.
