You shouldn’t miss out on your ambitions just because your money’s tied up, your sale has fallen through or your time is running out before a deadline.

With our bridging loans, you can bridge the gap between purchasing your property or making an investment, and getting longer term finance in place. Speedy short term finance, on a 12-month term, can give you the purchasing power to go from concept to completion, from opportunity to investment, or from hope to home.

Helping you get from A to Buy

Secure the finances you need now, fast, while you wait for your existing property to be sold or longer term financing to be arranged.

We consider a range of different exit strategies, including the sale of the property, sale of other investments and refinancing on to a longer-term mortgage.

We accept applications from foreign nationals, based in the UK and abroad, and British expatriates. Automated valuations for your property are also allowed, using data from a range of existing databases to automatically calculate a value, greatly reducing the timescales to access funds.

How does a Together bridging loan work?

A Together bridging loan lasts for an agreed term – typically 12 months. We provide the loan you need, and you need to pay it back (as a lump sum) before or when the term ends.

You'll be charged interest each month. Depending on what type of Bridging loan you have, you may need to pay this each month, or it may be rolled up and added to the lump sum. If you repay the lump sum before the term ends, you may be charged less interest in total.

Any fees associated with the loan can be added to the lump sum as well.

Who are bridging loans for?

Bridging loans are for everyone. They're a fast and flexible short-term finance option, giving you the funds needed to move quickly in a range of different personal and commercial scenarios. That means that whether you're a homebuyer or homeowner, sole trader or big business owner, landlord, investor or developer; a bridging loan could help you go from ambition to fruition.  

What do we mean by flexible though? Well, we're all about common-sense lending. Where other lenders say no based on criteria on a faceless checklist, we look at the person behind the application. We can help those with irregular incomes or less-than-perfect credit, and with properties that are non-standard. 

When you need to seize an opportunity, solve a situation, or meet a deadline; you can move quickly with a bridging loan from Together.

Common questions about Bridging Loans

What is a bridging loan?

A bridging loan is a short-term loan, which covers the gap between paying out for a new home before receiving the proceeds of the sale of another, they usually lasts up to 12 months.

How much can I borrow, and how much deposit will I need?

We can lend up to 70% of your property’s value. However, please note that the maximum loan-to-value ratio we can offer might be adjusted depending on the nature of the property.

Can I apply for a bridging loan if I have poor credit?

If you’ve got less-than-perfect credit, such as a small blip that’s caused a big impact on your credit score – we’ll use our common sense when reviewing your application, and look at your credit history instead.

We can also ignore adverse credit that’s over 12 months old when it comes to deciding your interest rate.

How do you decide my interest rate?

The rate you're offered may be influenced by several factors, including:

  • What you're using the bridging loan for.

  • The type and value of the property you're using to secure the loan.

  • How much you need to borrow (both in total, and as a percentage of your property's value).

  • Whether you have any other loans secured against the property, that won't be repaid by this loan.

  • Your credit history (but not your credit score).

Why might you choose a bridging loan?

A bridging loan is short-term, so you may choose one if you only need money temporarily – perhaps to sort out a cash flow problem, to bridge the gap between buying a property and securing a mortgage, or because you're intending to turn around a project quickly.

How long does a bridging loan take to arrange?

We’ve got decades of experience in getting bridging cases over the line quickly – and much faster than a typical fixed-term loan or mortgage. This means a bridging loan could get you the cash you need while waiting for longer-term borrowing to be arranged.

Can I get a bridging loan on land?

Yes – we can lend on land for a range of purposes. And if you’ve got planning permission in place, we have development finance options available which can last up to 24 months.

Can I get a bridging loan if I’m retired?

Yes – we have a maximum age of 85 years at the end of the term.

So if you’ve found the perfect retirement property, you don’t need to wait around for your current one to sell, and you’ll have plenty of time to organise your move and make the transition gradually.

Can I get a bridging loan if I’m self-employed?

Whether you’re a sole trader, freelancer or side-hustler, we can accept self-employed applicants with just 12 months trading history, and you’ll get the same rates as someone with a regular income.

We’ll look at your last three months’ earnings, so even if you took advantage of the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme in 2020, you’ll still be treated as normal.
