How do bridging loans work?
In most cases, borrowers secure quick bridging loans in Australia to bridge the gap in funding between buying a new property and selling the old one. That is, when you take out a short term bridge loan, you need to settle the loan based on a 6 to 12-month repayment term, with consideration that your existing property will be sold by this time.
Here’s how a bridging loan works:
- The loan credit company provides the funds to buy the new property and takes over the loan of the existing property. The lender can also restructure your loan in a way that the term of the original loan can be shortened. Depending on the credit company, some fees would be paid as well.
- The money that the borrower owes to the credit company is called the “peak debt.” This is the total amount of money that the borrower owes to the lender, the existing loan of your property and the new loan amount that will be used to buy the new property.
- Repayments will change during the duration of your loan. In this case, you have to check with the credit company for the payment conditions.
- After selling your existing property, the remaining balance of your loan will be the “end debt.” This means that the payment of your existing property will be deducted from your principal loan amount. Hence, end debt represents the principal amount of your bridging loan.
