A bridging loan is a short-term loan used to ‘bridge’ the gap between two events when funding is required to get from one stage to the next.
Bridging loans are taken out over a much shorter amount of time than standard secured borrowing – approximately 3 to 24 months. Bridging loans differ from mortgages because you do not pay them back monthly. Instead, you make full payment at the end of the term of the loan or before.
For example, many borrowers use bridging loans to both pay for and renovate property before they find a buy-to-let mortgage to rent it out or they choose to sell it on the open market.
Most bridging loans are secured against rental property or commercial property and they are unregulated. If you wish to use your primary residential property as security, this will be a regulated bridging loan.
Here at Redrock, we understand that every funding request is different. Whether you’re borrowing money to fund a property project or for another purpose, we see our role in the process as making sure that you have the choice of a bridging loan which makes commercial sense to you and which offers you the lowest rates possible on the most favourable terms.
Redrock offer the following bridging loan and development finance solutions:
Development finance is a short-term funding option allowing investors and developers to increase the value of residential or commercial property by developing it structurally or aesthetically.
It may also used for the initial purchase of property if you require the funds to take ownership and then to pay for the renovation, refurbishment, or development work required.
Auction finance bridging loan is a fast-turnaround and competitively-priced funding solution available to home movers, investors, landlords, and developers purchasing auction property either at an auction house or online.
Redrock offers land bridging finance packages to investors and developers for the acquisition of land.
Whether or not there is planning permission on the land already, we are still able to find a lender to work with you subject to the proposed exit plan.
A refinance bridging loan is an option for borrowers whose existing bridging loan is approaching repayment date where the borrower believes that the original exit of the loan won’t be achieved in time.
For example, if a landlord purchases a buy-to-let property which requires an extensive schedule of renovation prior to securing tenants but they are unlikely to complete that renovation by the expiry date of the original bridging loan, that bridging loan may be refinanced with a new one.
Regulated bridging loans are used by homeowners to raise funds from the equity which a borrower has accrued in their primary residential property.
They are most frequently used for self-build projects, to purchase new primary residential property when a seller is pressuring them to complete, or to purchase new primary residential property when there is a danger of a chain break. They may also be used for fund raising.
A second charge bridging loan is secured on the equity of any property you own. Equity is the difference between the value of your property and the outstanding balance on your mortgage.
Second charge loans are more frequently sought to raise funds for a wide variety of purposes, for the renovation or extension of existing primary residential property, or to purchase property for investment purposes.
A refurbishment bridging loan is used to finance the purchase and refurbishment of residential, mixed-use, or commercial property prior to selling it on or renting it out to tenants.
Borrowers may request financing for the purchase of the property as it is now with or without further funding for the refubishment of the property they intend to purchase.
Redrock offer an online bridging loan calculator to provide you with an instant indication of the likely cost of monthly and overall interest on the funding you wish to raise.
After you’ve entered the amount you wish to borrow and the length of time you will need for the loan, we’ll email you straight away with a transparent breakdown of costs and interest rates.

Redrock’s team has a combined 60 years of experience arranging bridging loans and development finance for borrowers. Whether the structure of the security you propose to offer for funding is straightforward or complex, we connect you with the lenders most likely to offer you the finance you require at the most competitive rates and on the best terms.
We understand how important the finance you’re requesting is and that, on most occasions, you need a decision almost immediately and the shortest possible wait to draw down the funding you’ve requested.
This is particularly important for borrowers who require access to a significant amount of capital where the security structure you’re offering is complex – for example, across multiple properties.
Since our formation in 2011, we have developed, in partnership with the lenders on our panel, the quickest and most robust deal progression system designed to speed up the provision of the funding to borrowers.
At all points, we know what documentation and information is needed during the application, verification, and completion stages. We liaise with all parties during the process for the most friction-free transaction – from the lender to the solicitors to the valuers.
Our clients are professional people and we understand that you want us to manage as much as the process as possible.
You have plenty of other tasks competing for your attention and you will not appreciate being constantly contacted by us about your deal.
We appreciate that so, when we do contact you, we’ll ask you for everything we need at one time to progress the deal at its current stage. You’ll have to give us permission beforehand but we’ll deal direct with your accountants and solicitors if you want us to so that they can provide us with what we need.
Of course, you can contact how and whenever you need to – you have a named account manager who takes responsibility for the progression of the deal from initial enquiry through to completion. If you have any questions or concerns at any stage, please contact them by phone or email during office hours.
Nearly one in five bridging loan and development finance facility requires refinancing because a borrower is unable to repay their original facility back in time.
When your bridging loan or development finance package has completed, your account manager changes role to become your exit progression manager. Every so often, s/he’ll contact you to enquire about the progress to timetable on your project and they’ll share their experience and insight about how to get a project back on track.
For those cases where a borrower of ours is genuinely concerned that they will not be able to repay their current facility back in time, we’ll let you know what your options are then. If necessary, we can arrange a refinancing of your bridging loan or development finance package at competitive rates to give you the additional time you need.
There has never been more competition in the bridging loan or development finance sector than there is now. In recent years in addition to the traditional lenders in this market, more specialist lenders, private banks, international financial institutions, and High Street banks now offer a range of competitive products aimed at particular types of borrowers.
When a new lender enters the market, we immediately contact them to start a working relationship with them meaning that all of our borrowers have access to the widest variety of deals available.
