Non-Status Bridging Loans
Non-status bridging loans are short term loans offered to property developers and investors who can’t meet the lending rules set by the Financial Conduct Authority. The FCA insists on a set of affordability tests before developers are approved for bridging finance. The purpose of their oversight is to ensure borrowers do not overextend themselves that they will end up defaulting on their loans.
Due to the stringent FCA rules for development finance, many developers would struggle to secure funding for expansion purposes. And without access to fast funding, property development is a very tough business. Such is the nature of industry that opportunities can come at you faster than you can raise funding. If you move slowly, the opportunities will be snatched in your face.
As developers typically place a greater value on growing a portfolio of investment properties over the health of their cash flow, they cannot meet the affordability tests insisted on by the FCA for status based lending. This is where non-status bridging loans present themselves as a powerful alternative funding source.
Why We Offer Non-Status Based Loans
At Galaxy Finance we’re fully aware of the risks associated with non-status loans. Having said that, we also fully appreciate the nature of the property development sector, principally how savvy developers are able to pull off highly lucrative deals even with negative cash flow. If a deal has potential, we will forgo a loan applicant credit history and release funding.
We also recognise the handicap suffered by new property developers who may not have built up a traceable credit history that would qualify them for regular property bridging loans. We are thus prepared to consider their bridging finance applicants and, if satisfied with their exit strategies, will get them funded.
Who Qualifies For Non-Status Bridging Loans?
Non-status loans are approved on the strength of the loan application itself and largely ignore your credit history, income, and cash flow. Your loan application will fail or succeed on the value of the property you are borrowing against as well as your specific plans for the loan once we approve it. This opens a funding door for small players who are looking to expand their portfolio of properties.
If you have been turned away by traditional development finance lenders for reasons of poor credit, low income, lack of experience, we may be able to offer you a non-status bridging loan. Besides security, all we will want from you is a well laid out plan that shows the full potential of the property deal you are looking to fund.
