When you need bridging finance, you need it now. There are multiple ways in which a bridging loan can help you move quickly, manage challenges as they arise and inject funding into a project swiftly.
Here at Glide, we appreciate that many people, businesses and industries are looking for creative ways to stand the test of time as the Coronavirus pandemic affects the way we live, work and travel.
Let’s take a look at our top tips for securing the bridging loan you need when you need it!
It sounds simple, but to get a fast turnaround on your bridging loan application, it is essential to know what you need your loan for, and for how long.
This type of fast financing is ideally suited to help with property investments. Giving buyers immediate cash to finance their purchase when time is of the essence.
However, you can also secure a bridging loan to help with any other short-term borrowing requirements, such as:
If you know how much you need, what your bridging loan will be secured against, and how long you wish to borrow for – you’re good to go!
Should you be unsure of any of the parameters, not to worry, give Glide a call and we will walk through all the options and the steps with you. Helping you make calm and informed decisions about which direction to move forward in.
You will find that the terms, rates and security required by different lenders vary significantly. Many of our clients have relied on mainstream high street lenders for many years, only to realise that the bridging loans available are at a cost far higher than those available from specialist lenders.
Whether your bridging lending is for 1 year or 5, £25,000 or £25 million, you need to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck.
Over time, slightly higher interest rates can create a big dent in your budget, and cost far more than you may realise in interest fees.

Glide scours the market to identify the most optimal rates, terms and lending for every client – we do the leg-work so that you can borrow with confidence, without the stress.
Lenders will always need some kind of security against which to offer your bridging loan. Most often this is property and might be tied in with the purpose of your borrowing.
For example, if you need a bridging loan facility to invest in a property purchase, the value of that loan will usually be secured against the property you are buying. Investors and buy-to-let landlords may decide to secure lending against different properties in their portfolio, or you might prefer to use a different form of security.
Security matters because this is the asset which you ‘put up’ and allows a bridging loan lender to offer you a facility. The more robust and secure the security, usually the higher the lending limit and the more favourable the rates and terms you will be offered.
If you are unsure as to what sort of security you can offer, or what extent of security you need to provide to secure the bridge lending you need, please get in touch.
