Revolving trading facility

Monthly interest from: 0.99%

Arrangement fee: 2%

Exit fee: Negotiable

Maximum loan to value: 50% & 75%

Maximum term: 12 months

Essentially a pre-agreed funding line against unencumbered property/properties so ideal for experienced landlords or property developers. Where this facility differs from a traditional bridging facility is that as the funds are provided against the unencumbered property, therefore the drawdown will rely on the security already taken and not any new property. The facility is in place for 12 months. The only valuation required would be on these unencumbered properties and not on any of the new properties purchased. All we require is a simple application for each drawdown request, the monies are then released within 48hrs of submission.

Procuration fee paid: 50% of Arrangement Fee and Exit Fee (if charged)
Strictly for professional intermediaries only
