Bridging Loan

Bridging Loans

As a leading bridging loan broker, Bespoke Commercial Finance offers tailored bridging finance solutions to meet the needs of our clients. A bridging loan, in particular a regulated bridging loan, is a flexible short-term finance option generally secured against land or property. Over the years, bridging finance has evolved to address the funding gaps and liquidity shortfalls often encountered with traditional high street banks. This evolution has made bridging loans an attractive choice for many, with quality lenders now offering competitive rates and substantial leverage.

Key components for a successful bridging loan include having suitable assets for security, an acceptable use of funds, and a well-defined exit strategy. Bridging loans can serve various purposes such as facilitating purchases at property auctions, acquiring properties that are currently unmortgageable, undertaking property refurbishments, preventing breaks in property chains, assisting with downsizing, or when traditional mortgages are unattainable. They are also effective for raising capital for personal or business purposes.

Why Consider a Bridging Loan for Property Development?

The primary advantage of using a bridging loan for property development is the speed and agility it offers. As a bridging finance broker, Bespoke Commercial Finance understands the urgency often associated with property development and investment opportunities. Bridging loans provide a crucial financial bridge between purchasing or renovating properties and securing longer-term funding or selling the developed property.

Additionally, bridging loans are more accessible compared to traditional mortgages and can often be arranged within a matter of days, depending on the lender. This swift financing allows clients to capitalise on opportunities without delay, ensuring that projects can commence at the earliest possibility.

Choosing the right bridging finance broker can improve your chance of successfully navigating the difficulty of property development financing. Bespoke Commercial Finance specialises in regulated bridging loans, ensuring compliance and security for all parties involved. Our expertise in bridging finance enables us to provide customised solutions that align with your project requirements and financial objectives.


A bridging finance package is more flexible than any other commercial mortgage.

Interest only option

Depending on the requirement and purchasing structure, some lenders offer a “Interest only” package. This allow you to pay the interest on a monthly basis, while the principal loan amount is merged as a part of the existing mortgage. This is immensely beneficial for businesses with limited cashflow.


Bridging loans are robust and adaptable. With the right deal negotiated with a specialist bridging loan broker, they can be used to finance almost every business expense.
