Bridging loans

A bridging loan is a short term loan that finances the purchase and/or construction of your new property while you're selling your existing property.

How does a briding loan work?

  • Lender usually takes over mortgage of existing property as well as financing the new purchase/construction of the new property.
  • This total is called Peak Debt (includes balance of existing loan and new funds sought).
  • Repayments are generally interest only.
  • Once you sell the first property, the net proceeds of sale (after costs) are used to reduce peak Debt. The remaining debt plus any capitalised interest becomes the End Debt
  • This End Debt then paid as per a regular mortgage product

Some lenders may allow you to capitalise interest on the briding loan meaning your loan balances increase as interest is added to your loan.
