Do you ever need short-term finance? If so, there is a fair chance that bridging will immediately spring to mind.
However, a loan may be a lot cheaper than bridging, and massive savings can be made with the correct approach.

Many bridging loans don’t complete – often because the benefits are not great enough to outweigh the costs – it just doesn’t make financial sense.
But a term loan with no early repayment charges could deliver a better result at far lower costs, which would make the whole project viable.

Here’s a recent example – The client saved a massive £10,000 over a 12 month period:
When considering a £150,000 second charge bridge the borrower saved over £10,000 by taking a term loan, and, unlike bridging finance,  it didn’t put them under pressure to refinance after a year.
In this case, the money was needed to complete and sell a development, but the loan was secured on the borrowers’ main residence. Consequently, rather than being forced to refinance, the term loan gave the borrower the required cash flow to roll straight over into the next project without paying another set of fees and costs.
Yes, bridging finance can often happen marginally faster as there is no burden of proving affordability – and there may be no monthly payments to service – But where affordability is not an issue, the interest costs can be more than halved, the need to find an exit is removed, and the costs of refinancing disappear.

On a Regulated term loan, the process is broadly the same but without any involvement by the borrowers’ solicitors, which can so often hold matters up for quite a while – It’s also cheaper than bridging.

So, next time you are thinking of a bridging loan, let me also explore the second charge term options for you.
Remember, second charges can be used for business purpose, tax or for heavy refurbishments – a low-cost second charge facility with the option to settle, or overpay without penalty, could make good sense for you.

Larger loans are becoming more accessible this year and I am hearing about a bigger take-up, as more people realize the benefits of these, and how they may help them.
Loans from £100,000 to £200,000 are more common; here are some recent large loan scenarios where you may consider a Second Charge loan:

£200,000 – For business investment
A client wanted to buy a share of his current company. This would increase his income through dividends and he wanted a lender to use the extra income within the affordability calculation.

£150,000 – Refurbishment – No kitchen or bathroom
This client was considering a bridging loan to bring the property up to mortgageable standards and intended to move in and then refinance.
However, a term lender agreed to take on the case which removed the need for an expensive bridging loan, also saving unnecessary fees. The client also got a far lower interest rate and didn’t have the pressure of exiting the bridge, a win-win situation.

£97,000 – Full consolidation
This client had a combination of credit cards and expensive loans which had built up over the years.
They could afford to make minimum payments but not much more, so the balance was hardly reducing.
A full consolidation loan reduced the outgoings by £1600 per month and immediately started eating into the balance outstanding.
With the ability to overpay, the clients were in a position to make further capital reductions when it suited them.

£110,000 – To pay a tax bill
It’s that time of year where many people start to worry and struggle… HMRC do not take prisoners, there are no excuses allowed when they need their payments. A large loan may provide a very worthwhile breathing space.

These larger loans are more accessible than previously and although deemed as Regulated, they come under a different set of rules when compared to regular mortgages, therefore have underwriting advantages.
