Most buyers would not have access to enough finance to buy a property outright, particularly in certain parts of the UK where property prices have significantly increased, so this brings bridging finance into the picture.
Bridging loans are a favoured financial option as they help to join a gap until a long-term mortgage deal or sale can be secured on a property. Pinnacle’s bridging finance for auction is available for commercial buildings, buy-to-let and residential properties. At Pinnacle, we have a proven track record when it comes to negotiating auction finance for our clients when it is needed most.
This can be a valid reason, and generally a common reason for taking out a bridging loan. As bridging finance can be arranged quickly in most instances, and is accessible when a conventional mortgage may not be, obtaining a bridging loan when buying a property at auction may be the most suitable solution. This is something your broker will cover off in finer detail with you.

Bridging finance is a essentially short-term funding option used to 'bridge' a gap between a debt coming due and the main line of credit becoming available. It can also be used to fund a new purchase as a means of short-term credit, typically up to a term of 1 year, and is relevant when a conventional form of lending is unavailable / unsuitable.
In order to qualify for a bridging loan there needs to be a valid reason for the finance. This can cover a range of areas, which our advisors will help you with. There are lenders who will be comfortable with poor credit profiles and low income situations, whilst the most suitable lender and deal will be determined by the overall lending proposal.
Bridging loans are not necessarily cheap compared to the setup costs of a conventional mortgage, however this is dependent on your circumstances, preferences, and the deal selected. You can elect in most cases to have fees added to the loan, which is something your broker will explain in detail, and show you all scenarios available.
With most lenders this can be optional, as they’ll be deals whereby monthly payments are applicable, whilst you can usually opt for a deal whereby interest payments are added to the loan and repaid once the loan comes to an end. Your broker will guide you on the options available and advise accordingly.
