One of the fastest growing sectors of finance which has seen a new generation of niche lenders.
Short term finance in Bath, Bristol and throughout the South West
A bridge loan is a type of short-term loan, typically taken out for months as opposed to years.
It is generally used by an individual or business to ‘bridge’ the gap until the next stage of financing is obtained.
Bridge loans are typically more expensive than conventional financing options, to compensate for the additional risk taken by the lender. They are commonly arranged quickly with relatively little documentation required.
