The allure of acquiring a property at auction is undeniable. The fast-paced environment, the competitive bidding, and the chance to snag a unique property at a potentially lower price can be quite enticing. However, the auction world operates on a different rhythm, with its own set of rules and timelines. To successfully navigate this landscape, one must be well-prepared, especially when it comes to financing.




Auction finance, often synonymous with bridging loans, is a specialised financial product designed to fit the unique demands of auction purchases. It’s a short-term funding solution that fills the interim between a winning bid and securing a more permanent form of financing, like a mortgage.


It's a specialised form of lending and is designed for speed and efficiency, allowing investors to move quickly when they spot an opportunity. This article, amongst other things delves into the importance of speed when buying at auction.




The gavel falls, and within moments, a property is sold. For the successful bidder, the race against time begins, with typically just 28 days to complete the transaction. This is where auction finance becomes the ace up the sleeve of savvy investors.


In the fast-paced world of property auctions, timing is everything.


It's a specialised form of a bridging loan and is tailored for the breakneck speed required in auction purchases.


Unlike traditional mortgages, which can take weeks or even months to arrange, auction finance can be pre-approved and funds released in a matter of days. This rapid turnaround is crucial because usually a 10% deposit is required on the day of the auction and the balance of the purchase price is required within a month.


Why Does Speed Matter?


1. Avoiding Penalties: Failing to complete on time can result in forfeited deposits and potential penalties.


2. Winning Bids: Pre-qualified buyers and investors can bid confidently, knowing they have the means to quickly seal the deal.


3. Capitalising on Opportunities: The property market waits for no one. Auction finance ensures investors don’t miss out on lucrative deals due to funding delays.


4. Competitive Edge: In a bidding war, the assurance of fast funding can give investors a distinct advantage over those relying on slower funding methods.




It works by providing a short-term loan that covers a percentage of the purchase price, minus the deposit already paid.


The loan is then repaid either through the sale of the property, the sale of another property or by refinancing to a traditional mortgage once any refurbishment works have been completed.

Bridging Loans

Bridging loans are highly favoured by developers and investors for their ability to provide rapid financial flexibility.


These short-term loans can enable swift acquisitions to allow the purchase of one property before selling another by “bridging” the gap between the purchase and the arrangement of long-term mortgage financing or the re-sale of the property being purchased.

Our Bridging Loan Experience.


Below Market Value Bridging Loans

Below market value (BMV) bridging loans offer a strategic financial solution for savvy property investors looking to maximize their leverage.


BMV bridging loans are based on the open market value (OMV) of a property, rather than the purchase price, allowing developers and investors to borrow more against a property’s true worth.
