That said, we managed to work out a solution for the client overcoming all these issues and were able to deliver the funds in less than 3 weeks. How? We know one lender personally who will lend in scenarios like this if they are comfortable with the asset and confident that the loan would be repaid or refinanced at the end of its term. We arranged site visits, compiled a full deal summary and demonstrated that one or two of our prime commercial lenders would refinance, if necessary, at the end of the term. We expected that others had tried to arrange this loan for the client – the fact that we not only succeeded but compiled this complex million pound bridging loan in a matter of weeks clearly demonstrates our ability in this challenging market.
