Lets looks at the two main ways to get 100 percent bridging below.

100% LTV Bridging For Below Market Value Purchases

A below market value (BMV) purchase is one of the circumstances that you may be able to fund 100% of the purchase price using bridging finance.

There are lots of genuine reasons why people agree to sell property below market value, such as a right to buy clause in leases, quick sales, distressed sales etc.

If you have negotiated a purchase price for a property that is significantly below the Open Market Value (OMV), then some bridging lenders will lend you 75% of the OMV.

So if your negotiated purchase price is at least 25% below the open market value, then it may be possible to get a 100% bridging loan against that purchase.

For Example:

Purchase Price: £150,000 (75% of OMV)

Open Market Value: £200,000

Gross Bridging Loan: £150,000 (100% of purchase price)

A key thing to keep in mind when buying a property below market value using bridging is the valuation is key. The lender will do either desktop or in person valuation using a surveyor.

The maximum loan amount will be based on the valuation regardless of purchase price or anyone’s opinion.


100% Loan to Value Bridging Loans Using Extra Security

Another way you can potentially get a bridging loan for 100% of a properties value, is by using additional security. So even if you don’t have any cash deposit to contribute, you can use equity in other properties without selling or refinancing them.

This would normally be a first, second or even equitable legal charge over the property.

What Additional Security Can You Use?

  • Main Residence/Home
  • Buy To Let Residential Property
  • Commercial Property
  • Trading Premises
  • Third Party Guarantor
  • Business Assets

Its also possible to do a bridging loan using just a second charge just on its own without any other property as security, potential leaving you to be a cash buyer.

Note: When using another asset as security like your home, you are putting that asset at risk of repossession in the future if you fail to repay the full loan amount. Therefore you need to make sure you are happy with the risk and consult a solicitor for advise.
