Tuscan Capital enhances bridging loan range

Bridging lender Tuscan Capital has made a number of improvements to its range of short-term borrowing solutions while simultaneously confirming new additional funding capacity.

With immediate effect, the lender’s maximum loan size is increased from £3m to £7.5m across all four product channels – Bridging, Mixed-Use/Semi-Commercial, Heavy Refurbishment and Auction Funding.

In addition, Tuscan Capital will now consider funding applications for commercial property, Buy-to-Let portfolios and for land with planning consent.

These changes have been made possible, the lender said, following the successful conclusion of negotiations to close a secondary funding agreement with a leading U.K. challenger bank.

Worth £30m, the new funding line is complementary to Tuscan Capital’s existing debt arrangements and increases its total funding capacity to £100m.

Colin Sanders, pictured, CEO Tuscan Capital, said:

“After recently celebrating our first year in business – during which time we lent £60m across seventy-two deals – we’ve begun our second year on full throttle.

Strengthened by new funding muscle, we’re now able to look at a wider range of applications from across the real estate spectrum and at much higher values. However, the entry point to our products remains at the very accessible level of just £150k.”

He added:

“Securing new funding from an established institutional player is tangible proof that we’re building a sustainable and successful long-term business. Whilst we’re keen to deploy the additional funds as quickly as possible, it will only be for the right type of deal. This is our way – first, foremost and always.”
