Regulated Bridging Finance

Regulated bridging finance is used for property which you or your family live in, intend to use as a home or have once used as a residence. These loans come under the watchful eye of the Financial Conduct Authority and are heavily scrutinised.

The number of bridging lenders in this space is very limited – they are much more involved and the lenders have many more obligations to fill.

The good news for you is that we are able to access a huge range of mainstream lenders, in addition to traditional bridging lenders, to solve short-term funding problems for owner occupied property.

There are some fine lines to tread here – having us on your side will help.


Bridging Loans For Main Residences

Regulated bridging finance is a very different kettle of fish from the point of view of the lender. Their position is heavily affected in terms of their responsibility and protection. In short, there are few lenders who are prepared to take on this extra administrative headache, and there are not many of them around.

All this makes regulated bridging finance one of the most difficult area of the market to navigate. It sits at the more time-consuming end of the scale and borrowers are unable to benefit from high levels of competition between lenders.

This leads to some brokers choosing to ignore – or bend – the rules. Calling the purchase a buy to let is a common loophole. You will not, however, find Enness going down that route.

Instead, we will use all of our experience, our strong relationships and our creative and persistence approach to solve your funding issue. Your solution will come from either a bridging lender or a mainstream bank. You will be surprised, as we have been over the years, by what some of the regional building societies are able to do!

Through regular lending reviews, we will ensure you are not overpaying in the short- or medium-term.
