Shawbrook Bridging Loans vs Unconventional Bridging Lenders

Revolution Brokers are not your average Commercial and Residential Finance Brokers; we are not confined to a restricted number of products and work on your behalf to achieve the best possible deals for your business.


Fast bridging finance from Revolution Brokers

Bridging loans need to be fast, simple and streamlined! We provide high value bridging loans with competitive rates and terms, to help our clients span their funding requirements in the most cost-effective way.

Revolution consultants work with you to understand what type of lending is best suited to your borrowing needs, how we can minimise the extent of borrowing taken out, and how to make that lending work for you.


Assessing your bridging finance needs

Each requirement is individual, so Revolution Brokers will consult with you to help assess what sort of funding you need. Working with a professional helps to ensure that you never borrow more than your requirements, or end up paying fees and interests charges unnecessarily.

Many clients will add a small contingency to their application to cover any unforeseen circumstances, and we are here to help you make an educated calculation!


Securing bridging lending

Security is the collateral that you offer against your borrowing, and the higher the protection, the less risky the loan, and the more favourable terms a lender can extend.

What sort of security you might offer, and at what value, is unique to you. Revolution consultants will help you to establish what types of security might be suitable, and to ensure that you do not stake more assets against your borrowing than you need to. 


Bridging finance repayment terms

How long you need your lending for will depend on your circumstances and what purpose your bridging finance will service. A shorter loan term will help secure more cost-effective interest rates since the lender will receive back their funding faster.

You might find that a longer repayment period is more beneficial to help balance your cash flow, but we will make sure that you understand all the costs involved to be able to compare each option!


Reducing bridging loan fees

One of the most common stumbling blocks with bridging finance is the unexpected costs - known as 'stealth charges'.

There are many lenders on the market offering excellent terms, but who will also charge things like:

Arrangement fees
Administrative fees
Exit fees
Account closure fees
Repayment penalties

Working with Revolution affords you full transparency over your lending to keep control of the costs and knowing every fee involved before you make any decisions.
