Case study: 75% LTV Residential Bridge with multiple exit options

Client: An experienced property renovator

Request: Residential bridging loan to purchase a bungalow for the purpose of refurbishment or replacing with three units

Loan total: £210,000

LTV: 75%


An experienced property renovator approached us for terms on a project they were looking to start in Stalybridge, less than 10 miles out from Greater Manchester.

They needed residential bridging finance to support the purchase of a bungalow, but with two proposed exit strategies:

  1. Apply for planning permission to demolish the bungalow and build three new residential units in its place
  2. If the planning application failed, renovate the bungalow and refinance for Buy-to-Let.

To agree to this, we needed to see evidence that both projects would add the necessary value to the property for it to be desirable and pay back our loan.

Valuers saw evidence that the first proposal would increase the value of the plot by nearly £400,000, while the renovation would make the worn-down property attractive to both renters or purchases. 

With this information in hand we funded the deal this month.
