The client had struggled to get financing from a majority of lenders as he was waiting for planning permission so he could add an additional floor to the property.

MTF solution: While he was waiting on planning permission, MTF provided £780,000 1st charge bridging loan over a 12 month term at 65% LTV.  Interest was retained at 0.99%,  with no exit fees or ERCs.

Once consent was obtained, he would then be able secure development finance and in turn pay off the bridging loan.
