Case study 1st charge.
Client inherited a property with sister and had no mortgage. The client wanted to buy out the sister but had some adverse credit so bridging finance was used with monthly payments deducted from the loan so no monthly payments were required for 12 months. After the term the client met a couple of lenders criteria for the exit to pay back the bridge so lender was happy to proceed. Property value was £220,000 and £100,000 net required. Rate was 1.3% pcm with 2% lenders arrangement fee.

No valuation was required by the lender and no consent was also required from the 1st charge lender. Client received cleared funds within 5 working days.
Development Case study
The client came to us with terms from another lender to purchase a property for delevopment. Current terms were 70% of the 90 days value to purchase the property and 70 of the development cost. We were able to get 70% of the purchase price and 100% of the development cost as lenders exposure was less than 65% of the Gross Development Value. Purchase price was £950,000 and development costs were £400,000.
Rate offered was 2% arrangement fee and 1.25% pcm. As we have relationships with high street commercial lenders we were also able to do the exit for the client.
HMO Property Case study
The client wanted to purchase a licensed HMO but it also had a seperate self contained studio which was difficult to finance as had no change of use consent from the council. As such the vender only wanted cash buyers. We were able to arrange a bridge for the client so once purchased the kitchen could be taken out of the self contained studio and as such exit with a normal high street lender within 3 months. Client was happy as even with the bridging cost the client was saving over £70,000 on the Open Market value.
