Types of bridging loans we offer

Caveat loans for personal use

The main benefit of a caveat loan is that they’re quick, easy, flexible and require minimal documentation.

A short-term caveat loan is commonly used to manage the cash flow between the sale and purchase of a property. So, if you have sold a property and need to pay for another, but settlement timing doesn’t match up, a caveat loan can be a great short-term solution.

In addition, caveat loans can be used to complete renovations or residential development projects. Caveat loans can help raise funds required for construction, with a caveat on the property, which will be released once the property is finished and sold.

We offer short-term caveat loans with flexible repayment periods. And you can quickly and easily apply online.

First mortgage loans

Most first homeowners will require a mortgage to secure their new home. Historically first mortgages have been provided by big banks for a long term (often 15 years up to 30 years). Though it’s becoming increasingly clear that longer-term loans do not always suit everyone’s circumstances – particularly for borrowers who may only need access to funds for a shorter period of time or if their credit history has been impacted.

The good news is that there are a number of alternative and private lenders in Australia who provide short-term first mortgages, which typically have a duration of 2 to 36 months.

It’s also good to keep in mind that while generally, first mortgages are for property purchases, they can be used for home renovations or paying bills. A short-term first mortgage is also often utilised to fund business ventures or cover construction costs for real estate development.

Second mortgage loans

A short-term second mortgage may be worth considering if you have solid equity in your home, an inability to extend or refinance your primary mortgage loan, and quickly need access to significant funds.

A short-term second mortgage loan can be used for personal or business purposes. Common business requirements include boosting working capital, acquiring equipment or stock, or even purchasing a business. Typical short-term second mortgage loan uses include consolidating debts (such as personal loans and credit cards), paying a one-off large bill or undertaking renovations on your home.

Home equity loans

If you have built up equity in your home (via repayments and an increase in property value over time) and you need access to a large amount of funds quickly, a short-term home equity loan may be worth considering. Generally speaking, the more equity you have in your home, the more you will be able to borrow through a home equity loan.

Common uses for a short-term home equity loan include funding renovations, investments, business working capital or repaying debt, such as ATO debt, personal or business debt.

FAQs

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.
