What is a Bridging Loan?

Bridging loans are used to “bridge a gap” by providing capital quickly until a more long-term and usually lower interest solution can be found. These loans can be used in situations such as paying for lease extensions, buying a property at auction, refurbishing a property before putting it on the market or paying for unexpected bills.

If you require short term finance that can be arranged within a short timescale, a bridging loan could be the best option for you.

At Rotheras we can provide advice and guidance on the process of secured lending and taking out a bridging loan, so you fully understand the nature of the deal and feel protected at all stages.

Whether you’re a borrower looking to obtain finance or a lender looking to provide finance, our bridging finance team are well-placed to help you and can advise on all aspects of loan transactions.

Why use Rotheras for Bridging Finance?

We act for both borrowers and lenders and as a result are aware of the requirements of both sides.

We have significant experience of bridging loans so are appreciative of the urgency involved in obtaining this type of finance, and can work to tight timescales.

We will be transparent about our fees from the start and will ensure you are kept updated on any progress at all stages of your matter.

We can draft and advise on loan agreements, including drafting standard or more bespoke documents, which are often required when funding developments projects over a certain period of time.

When acting for lenders we can assist with due diligence and draft/produce required documentation.

When acting for borrowers we work to satisfy the agreements and conditions of the lender and can review and advise on documentation.

We have connections to several independent financial advisors we can put you in contact with for obtaining a bridging loan.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.

Myth-busting – What are your Legal Rights in a Long-Term Relationship?

Between 1970 and 2015, marriage was in sharp decline. This cultural shift, as more people choose to live together, means there is confusion over the rights of individuals in long-term relationships.
