Many people find Sussex to be an idyllic location, packed with many historical spots and attractive new developments. The quaint English county is especially famous for its great nightlife, music festivals, fashionable individuals, artistic talents and many other creative interests. As such, it has been enticing new buyers and families into settling down in this place by investing in some of the finest real estates in the UK.

The Sussex housing market provides a variety of properties for sale. Whether you’re a property developer or a home buyer – Sussex is drawing attention from investors across the country. With property prices holding strong since the beginning of the year, bridging loans are a popular option for financing a property purchase in Sussex.


What Is A Bridging Loan?

Bridging loans are short-term finance products. When you work with a reputable lender, you get the peace of mind that your bridging loan application will be straightforward and hassle-free. Professional advice can help to sort out some of the potential problems and structure the bridging loan correctly.

To secure bridging financing, the borrower must provide an asset, such as property that can act as security. In exchange, you can negotiate a shorter repayment term of between 6-12 months.  A clear exit plan in place, such as refinancing or selling the asset, increases your chances of securing a bridging loan.

What Can You Use Bridging Loans For?

Bridging loans can help you in a number of situations when you need fast access to finances for:

Commercial Purchases – you can skip the lengthy application for a loan for commercial purchases if you want to close fast on a deal. Bridging loans provide financing quickly, thus allowing you to secure purchases ahead of other buyers.

Buy-to-let –The demand for rental properties in Sussex is growing. If you want to buy a property in Sussex as an investment opportunity, you can use a bridging loan to secure the purchase of a property, which then allows time to secure long-term funds.

Property Refurbishment– Sussex is a vibrant county that continues to grow and develop. This means property of a high standard is in constant demand. Property developers looking to renovate or refurbish properties often need finance to do so.  Bridging loans are a quick solution that allows you to undertake the refurbishments without delay to help improve assets and increase their value. 


Who Are Bridging Loans Suitable For?

Anyone can apply for a bridging loan; they are used commonly when buying at auction, or if you need to buy before a sale, as well as by property developers and businesses looking to flip a property (the process of buying and selling quickly). Bridging loans can be used for both residential and commercial properties, and by private property owners, developers and investors 

The exit strategy is an important part of the process and should be considered before you take out a bridging loan. Bridging loans are an effective short-term solution to obtaining finance quickly when long-term finance is not currently available but will be by the time the bridging loan is due to be repaid.
