A bridging option was required to base the leverage on the open market value of the property, while still vacant.
A development exit bridge loan at 70% LTV, with an interest rate of 0.75% and full interest roll-up was arranged.
Tom Berry, asset finance adviser at Arc & Co (pictured above), stated: “We are finding that an increasing number of our clients are benefitting from short-term bridging loans as they provide flexibility and speed.”
