Acquisition Bridge

Created for experienced and active developers, our Acquisition Bridge option provides short-term funding to assist in the acquisition or refinance of land or buildings, or where equity release is sought, prior to converting to development finance.

We recognise the property sector moves fast and having access to the right financial options at the start of a development project is essential to its success.

Our Acquisition Bridge provides the opportunity for experienced property developers to access short term finance quickly, at the time it’s needed most.  Funding can be provided for land or property:

  • With or without detailed or proposed use planning permission

  • Where a change of planning permission or use is required

  • For agreed development projects which aren’t planned to start within the next six months.

We can also provide longer term development finance to support you in the next phase of your development, potentially refinancing the land acquisition bridge into a development finance facility
