Most bridging lenders offer terms up to 18 months (12 months maximum for regulated bridging loans).
All lenders will require security on the property being financed, this may be 1st, 2nd or 3rd charge. Some lenders will look for additional security to increase the LTV.
Some bridging lenders will lend against properties in poor condition, that need to be demolished, or cannot be mortgaged due to condition.
