YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.
Regulated bridging mortgages
If you’ve ever experienced a broken property chain - where an unforeseen delay leaves you unable to complete on a purchase - you’ll know how frustrating it can be.
A bridging loan is a short-term funding option which can help you ‘bridge’ the gap between the completion of a sale and accessing credit, meaning you avoid losing the home you have your sights on. Thanks to our highly flexible and responsive approach, at Shawbrook Bank we’re often able to help, just when you need us most.
If the buyer of your old property lets you down or delays completion of the sale, a bridging loan allows you to secure the new property while the problem is being sorted. This facility is then paid down on the sale of your existing property.
We have two bridging products available for customers:
Bridging finance benefits
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.
