Bridging Finance

We can help you purchase or build your new dream home before you have sold your existing property.


The IMB Bridging Loan has been specially designed to provide you with a smooth and hassle-free solution when purchasing prior to selling your existing property.

A Bridging loan is a short term loan to fund the purchase of your new property and is paid out with proceeds from the sale of your existing property. To help ease the financial strain during this period, you don't have to make any repayments on your new loan until your existing property is sold. Interest charges are capitalised – this means they are added to the loan balance.

IMB can set up your bridging loan to your specific needs and you have up to 6 months to sell your existing property. Bridging Finance is only available on IMB's Standard Variable Loan.
