- UK bridging loans
A handy guide to 60% LTV
Participating loans will be split into two separate tranches. Previously, when arranging a loan of up to 55% LTV, the loan was funded by the RAW Mortgage Fund. Now, when arranging a loan of 60% LTV, 55% is provided by the RAW Mortgage Fund and 5% is provided by a new lender.
The interest charged by the two lenders creates the blended rate quoted on RAW Mortgages' rate card, which you can see here. We’ve created a handy guide to illustrate how it all works too.
*All interest rates stated are margins above Bank of England base rate (subject to a base rate floor of 0.75%). The example above is for illustrative purposes only and loan to valuation ratios and interest rates may vary.
What are the benefits?
First, the borrower is able to borrow a larger sum than previously.
Second, as the borrower can repay all or part of the loan from the new lender fee-free at any time, they can reduce the total interest rate payable and gain a direct benefit from repaying a small amount of capital.
Finally, borrowers receive the same flexible lending criteria and quick turnaround times as they always have!
Borrower A wishes to borrow £240,000 at 55% LTV. Their mortgage will come entirely from the RAW Mortgage Fund at 4.25% (plus base rate).
Borrower B wishes to borrow £240,000 at 60% LTV. Their mortgage will come as a loan of £220,000 from the RAW Mortgage Fund at 4.25% (plus base rate) and £20,000 from RAW LendCo at 7.25% (plus base rate) for a total loan of £240,000 at a blended interest rate of 4.50% (plus base rate). At any point during the loan term, the borrower can repay £20,000 and reduce their interest rate to 4.25% (plus base rate) without incurring additional charges.
