Aspen Bridging completes £2.7m ‘no valuation’ bridging loan
By Tony Sanchez -
Aspen Bridging has completed a £2.734 million no valuation bridging loan for an applicant who wanting to redeem a development loan and refurbish additional properties.
The developer used a property consisting of seven apartments in Wandsworth, London worth £3.775m as security, giving a LTV of 72.5%.
The no valuation bridging loan was completed on the lender’s stepped rate which starts at 0.39%, taken over a 10-month term, with the developer exiting through the sale of existing assets.
Aspen Bridging’s no valuation bridging loan product uses a remote internal valuation assessment which removes the need for physical inspection which in turn speeds up the process from start-to-finish.
Available at quote stage up to 70% LTV for residential and 65% for commercial applications, rates start from 0.39% Stepped and 0.74% Flat for loans of up to £3m net.
The no valuation bridging loan product is another new offering designed to reach completion within a maximum of 10 working days.
The case was handled from start-to-finish by Saif Khalique, Senior Underwriter at Aspen, who overcame complex structuring where freeholds and leases of several properties were held in different corporates, and in some cases personal names, to enable the deal to proceed swiftly as one simultaneous facility.
Ian Miller-Hawes, Head of Sales at Aspen Bridging, said:
“Since its launch at the start of September, the no valuation bridging loan product has proven to be extremely popular as it removes one of the biggest obstacles in ensuring a speedy completion.”
Michael Perry at Alexander Hall added:
“Dealing with Ian and Saif has been amazing. There was a number of challenges throughout the process and they kept myself and the client updated all the time and couldn’t have been more helpful.
I’m looking forward to using Aspen again.”
