£2.3Million Bridging Loan Secured in Just 3 Weeks

I am thrilled to announce that I, the Head of Property, Laurie Bough, successfully finalised a Bridging Loan Property Finance Deal worth £2.3 million with a quick turnaround of just three weeks, in partnership with Octane Capital.

This particular Bridging Loan was requested by a highly experienced developer/contractor based in the Midlands. They needed funding for a partially completed property in Peterborough, which is currently undergoing conversion from offices into 96 flats.

At the time of lending, there were approximately £1 million in outstanding build costs for the project.

Laurie Bough, Head of Property, shared his thoughts on the achievement, saying:

“I have worked with Octane for many years now and when presented with a difficult bridging case in an uncertain marketplace, I had the confidence it would deliver the funding on time.”

Josh Knight, Octane's sales and marketing director (pictured above), also expressed his satisfaction, stating:

“In a lending market characterised by nervousness and delayed decision-making, we continue to deliver on time and exactly when we said we would.

“Completing a loan of this complexity within such a short space of time underlines our hunger to lend.

Josh also extended his gratitude to our broker, Laurie Baugh of Approved Property Finance:

“Special thanks must go to our broker, Laurie Baugh of Approved Property Finance, who was extremely responsive throughout.”
