    Getting the most out of bridging finance

    Welcome to Day 3 of a week of themed content on Property Tribes which is powered by Brightstar Financial.

    We're calling it "Finance Innovation Insights" Week, and it will feature exclusive video content that outlines some of the different aspects of finance, in particular, those related to a new product from Precise that Brightstar think more landlords should be aware of.

    This product offers an angle for forcing the appreciation of a property through improvements, and is a streamlined solution featuring a bridging loan with term finance at the end, all undertaken in one application.

    This product is ideal for:

    • Properties needing works to meet minimum EPC rating, such as boiler replacement
    • Properties purchased at auction that require light refurbishment to be acceptable for mortgage purposes (including new kitchens and bathrooms)
    • Landlords choosing to refurbish in order to maximise the rental yield of their property (including HMOs but not change of use to HMO)
    • Properties bought under valuation

    In this instalment, Kit Thompson, Head of Bridging at Brightstar Financial, discusses the rise in popularity of bridging finance and shares some key insights into how to get the most out of this important tool in the investors' toolkit:

    "Finance Innovation Insights" Week features the following content run-down:

    Episode #1 -  Launch and overview

    Episode #2 -  How finance and tax are now inextricably linked and Landlords' tax positions (sole trader or ltd co?)

    Episode #3 -  Getting the most out of bridging finance

    Episode #4 -  The property developer perspective

    Episode #5 -   Second charge loans and instances where they can be used.

    Bridging essentially makes you a cash buyer, and if you have significant equity or an unencumbered property, you can bridge against those.

    As discussed above, bridging is particularly effective on properties that are unmortgageable.
