Before looking at bridging finance it’s important to be aware of both the pros and cons of bridging loans to ensure it’s the right option for you.

What is a bridging loan calculator?

The lender will input data like the net amount, term length, details of your deposit, and security, and the calculator will generate a quote. This includes the interest costs and any other fees.

Some lenders use internal calculators for calculating how much interest they will charge. This is always done on an individual basis. They also have separate tools to help you bridge mortgages.

What are the different types of bridging loan calculators available?

Different lenders use different bridging finance calculators depending on how they calculate interest. This is why there might be some variation in the numbers that they return. Multi-functional calculators can provide information on interest rates and estimates for the total cost.

Calculator for the cost of a bridging loan

These calculators are used to calculate the total cost of a bridge loan. The total loan amount, accrued interest, and any additional fees that the borrower will have to pay, including arrangement, valuation, and legal fees for loan security.

The standard calculator will give you a quote based on the main details of the deal such as your deposit amount, term length, and exit strategy. However, some lenders use sophisticated calculators that account for other variables.

Although rates, criteria, and the way that quotes are calculated in Scotland are generally the same as elsewhere in the UK, it is possible to find postcode limitations in certain parts of the country such as the Highlands, or any other area of the country.

Bridging Rates calculator

A lender may use a bridging loan rate calculator to determine how much interest they will charge. To calculate the interest rate percentage they think is appropriate for the risk they are taking, they will use information like your credit rating, industry experience and the viability to invest.

Calculate the interest on bridging loans quickly

To calculate the total interest for a bridging loan, some lenders use standalone calculators. The amount of interest you pay will depend on many factors such as the length of the loan, the rate you get, and the type of bridging financing deal you have.

Bridging loans are typically charged interest in one of three ways: monthly or rolled up and retained. The total amount you pay can vary across the board.

  • Monthly: Interest works exactly the same as an interest-only mortgage. The interest is charged monthly, and the entire loan amount is due at the end. To calculate the rate you will be charged, the lender will use a monthly interest-bridging loan calculator.
  • Rolled-up
    Each month, the interest is added to your loan amount and compounded. At the end of the loan term, the total amount is paid off.
  • Retained:
    The amount of interest due at the term’s beginning is calculated by the lender and the customer is billed based on how long the loan has been in force. If the borrower decides to pay it sooner, the total amount due is due at the conclusion.
  • Serviced:
    Lenders allow clients to pay monthly interest. This allows them to get more leverage out of the deal. The interest is not added to the loan amount, which increases the client’s net loan.

Bridging Loan Calculator: Final Overview

In most cases, we can secure bridging loans regardless of credit history.

Interest rates may be slightly higher for those with a particularly bad credit history due to the fact that not all lenders will be prepared to lend under those circumstances.
