How do I use the MFS bridging loan calculator?
Using our calculator is straightforward and very quick – just follow these simple steps:
For your ease of use, we have included a full list of definitions below.
- Enter the estimated market value of the property
- Enter any outstanding mortgage. If you do not already own the property, this will be zero
- Enter the amount of money you would like to borrow, in pounds.
- Enter the maximum number of months you will need to borrow the money for.
- Next, choose your interest payment plan. There are three options which are explained below in the definitions. If you choose “part serviced”, enter the number of months you wish to delay your repayment of the interest, after your loan is secured. You can choose to pay the interest monthly starting from 3 months until the end of the loan.
- Please select an interest rate. Our standard rate is 1%, but you can see how different rates of interest affect repayment amounts.
- Please select the arrangement fee. Most lenders charge an arrangement fee for setting up the loan, this is typically 1% but can vary from lender to lender.
How does a bridging finance calculator work?
You will also see the monthly interest payments, so that you know how much you will either be paying monthly or at the end of your term, as well as the gross amount, which is the total to be repaid.
The figures are only a guide to what you might pay, the exact cost will depend on which loan you choose. Please contact us to talk through your circumstances, no matter how complex they are.
- Net Loan Amount – This figure represents the amount you will receive.
- You will need to pay this back in full at the end of the term.
- Gross Loan Amount – This figure represents the full amount you will repay at the end of term. It is calculated by adding the Net Loan Amount and the interest.
- This number will change depending on term length and if the interested is paid monthly or rolled up.
- Term – This is the number of months you need the money for.
- Monthly Interest payment – The interest you will pay each month. This will depend on how much you borrow and the overall risk of borrowing.
- You can choose to pay this monthly or at the end of the term.
- Rolled Up – The number of months you would like to delay paying interest.
Example: If your term is 12 months and you wish to delay payment for four months, you won’t pay anything until the fifth month.
If you choose to delay interest payments until you repay the loan in full at the end of the term, this number will be the same as your term length.
N.B – As our minimum loan term is 3 months, if you clear the loan before the end of the third month, then you will be charged the interest you would have paid over three months.
Arrangement Fee – This is a fixed rate added onto the loan for the reserving of funds and administration costs charged to the company.
