YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.
Regulated Bridging Mortgages
A bridging loan is often used to ‘bridge the gap’ between the completion of a sale and accessing the credit needed to make a purchase – a fantastic option if you don’t want to lose out on your dream home due to unforeseen delays.
Thanks to Shawbrook’s flexible approach, this short-term funding can also be used for other purposes, for when speed is of the essence or finance is needed for a short amount of time.
A bridging loan of £75,648.02 repayable after 12 months on a fixed rate of 7.92% would require a single payment of the capital borrowed (£68,000) plus the accrued interest (£5,853.99), the arrangement fee (£1.475), the broker fee (£800) and telegraphic transfer fee (£20), legal fees (£858), totalling £77,123.16.
The total amount payable would be £78,493.16 made up of the amount above (£77,123.16) plus valuation fees (£1,475), title insurance (£116) and the redemption fee (£100).
The overall cost for comparison is 15.72% APRC representative

Scenario: Chain break*
Planning to start a family, John and Kirsty want to move from their current two-bed to a bigger property close to good schools. They find a four-bedroom house, but their own property is tied up in a long chain. Their mortgage adviser helps them secure a regulated bridge. Their old house sells quickly and having arranged a mortgage on their new home, they use the funds to fully repay the regulated bridge with no early repayment charges.

Mr & Mrs Jones have owned their house for 25 years. Their three children have flown the nest and they want to downsize as the property is too big for their current needs. They find their dream cottage that requires some light refurbishment before they can move in but they do not want to wait for their existing property to sell as they may lose out to a rival homebuyer.
After securing a bridging loan, they complete the sale of their existing property six months later, pay down the finance and are happily settled in their newly refurbished home without the worry of waiting nervously through numerous property viewings.
