What does bridging finance mean?

A short-term loan secured by real estate is known as bridging finance or a bridge loan and is used when a borrower requires access to funds. In the case of TAB, they offer unregulated bridging loans backed by real estate, land, and construction projects.

Bridging loans are frequently utilised by those who want to buy an investment property before selling another one. Although the proceeds from the sale of the prior property would be used to pay for the purchase of the new one, this procedure can occasionally be drawn out and the individual may desire or need to buy the new property sooner than that would permit. The cost of the new property purchase will be covered by the bridging loan, so the borrower won't need to wait for the proceeds from the sale of the existing home.

There are other situations besides the ones mentioned where bridge loans may be employed. One can obtain financing for auctions, renovations, developments, or land. A typical bank lender may also be reluctant to approve a loan in situations where the borrower has a poor credit history, is an expatriate or borrows from another country, or is even a novice landlord.
