Bridging home Loan
Many people find the idea of buying one home while selling another to be a complete nightmare. What happens if your old home doesn’t sell in time? What happens if you sell your own home too soon and you haven’t found a new one to buy yet?
With a bridging loan, your lender will loan you the money to cover the gap between settlement and purchase. Effectively, the lender agrees to take on both mortgages. Bridging finance typically covers a period from a few days to a few months.
To qualify for bridging finance, borrowers must show that they can pay their existing mortgage as well as interest costs on the new loan. Lenders may also charge exit fees from existing loans, establishment charges for the new loan, valuation fees, legal fees and penalties if you exit a fixed loan. Lenders generally apply strict criteria to bridging finance before giving approval. Conditions can include the unconditional sale of a borrower’s existing property and restrictions on proposed settlement terms. Other conditions may be imposed on a case-by-case basis.
