Financing the move from one property to another can be quite stressful, especially if you are yet to sell your home. A bridging loan can help free up the funds that are tied up in your current property to purchase your next home. With a bridging loan, your lender will use both your current and new property as security and lend you enough to buy your new home.
While you are waiting for the sale and purchase process to be completed on both your current and new property, you make interest only repayments on the loan, or maybe even no repayments at all (often referred to as capitalising the interest). Once you have sold your old property, the proceeds go towards paying off the bridging loan.
