"We assessed the market and found lender criteria for such Finish & Exit bridges to be too restrictive. "
Aspen Bridging has launched a Finish & Exit bridge product available from 0.49% up to 80% LTV.
The term can run from eight to 12 months up to the lender’s maximum loan sizes of £4m net for portfolios and £2m net on single properties.
The product is available on wind and watertight developments, allowing drawdowns on revisit or building control sign-off, and will progress with no building surveyor required where works are sufficiently advanced as its underwriters will be present at valuation stage.
The product is available throughout England and Wales with no restrictions on scheme type or works percentages, and is offered to both corporate and individual borrowers.
Jack Coombs, director at Aspen Bridging, said: “We assessed the market and found lender criteria for such Finish & Exit bridges to be too restrictive. The demand is strong given the current environment of slower sales where development lenders are often requiring redemption earlier than developers are able to deliver.
“This new product places control back in the hands of the developer, and because of the close relationship we operate with every customer, including the prerequisite site visit, we can utilise our underwriters’ expertise to drop many barriers to entry. Add our high LTVs and service excellence and the product is truly compelling.”
