Residential Purchase

Buying a home is stressful enough but whether they’re looking to purchase a new property or looking to move, our regulated bridging loan products will give your client true peace of mind.

With instant decisions in principle and a streamlined process, we empower your client to quickly complete their onward property purchase, whilst giving them time and breathing space for their current property to sell or to arrange residential refinance.

With all types of residential properties considered and terms up to 12 months, we give your clients the certainty that funds will be delivered exactly when they need them.

Will you provide 100% of the purchase price?

No, our gross lending is capped at 90% of the purchase price.

Do you accept gifted deposits?

Yes, we do. We will require your client’s solicitor to disclose this to our acting solicitor who will then ask for sight of any necessary documentation and/or indemnities.
