What your results will tell you?

Loan to Value (net loan)

This will tell you what the loan to value of your borrowing is. This is used by lenders to express the amount borrowed as a % of the property value. The LTV is an important factor as it will often determine what rates are available to you.

The maximum loan to value we can usually achieve depends on different property types. We can usually achieve the following:

Security Max LTV
Land without planning 50%
Land with planning 65%
Residential (Regulated) 70%
Commercial 75%
Residential (Unregulated) 80%
Total Interest

Total interest is just the amount of interest charged over the duration of the loan. This is normally added into the loan and paid when the bridging loan is repaid. It can also be subtracted from the loan, which means that the net loan is reduced by the cost of the interest.

Total Finance Cost

This will work out the total finance cost which includes the interest, lender product fee and any exit fee that is charged. It will help you understand the full cost of taking out a bridging loan from start to finish. However, you need to bear in mind, that it does not take into account any legal fees, the valuation fee or any admin fee the lender may charge.
