Amber Mortgage Solutions understands that the need for fast turnarounds is essential and our specialist team can utilise their network of lenders to find you the best deal.

How much can I borrow?
Typically, gross loans are available to a maximum of 75% of the value of the subject property. However, if there is additional security available, it is possible to fund 100% of the purchase price.
As an example: If the property to be purchased is worth £200,000, the maximum gross loan available will be £150,000 minus the retained interest and fees. The loan will often be for a term of between 1 – 24 months, however, the borrower may be able to repay the loan early without an early repayment charge. This will be dependent on the agreed terms.
Secured Bridging Loans
When considering a bridging loan a lender will usually require collateral in the form of property, the loans for one property can be secured against the collateral of combined properties. The lender will secure the loan by taking a charge against the property, most likely in the form of a first or second charge. There are alternative collateral types that will be considered, however, residential property is the most common and preferred type for lenders.
