£1.2 million bridging loan secured to purchase development site
Our client asked for help to secure a £1.2 million bridging loan in order to complete on a development site in London.
He had already exchanged contracts and was under pressure to arrange finance in order to complete the purchase.
There was also the added difficulty that the property did not have planning permission to be converted into luxury flats.
Many of the bridging companies were not keen to lend against a property without planning permission, although we found a handful of providers willing to help.
As our client had a proven track record of gaining planning consent on properties in London and history of developing them, the lenders looked at the borrowing request more positively.
