Bridging Finance

Bridging Finance most commonly takes the form of a short term loan in order to immediately gain access to necessary funds against future income. A typical example would be where you have sold a house and are waiting for the proceeds of the sale to come through. In the meantime you need money to pay transfer fees and other expenses to secure a new property that you are buying. This is where bridging finance comes in. The bridging loan is secured against the future income from the sale of your property. Essentially, bridging finance can thus be described as interim financing for a person or a business concern, for a limited period until more long-term financing can be arranged, or until other funds accrue. Bridging finance can also be used by people who need funds while waiting for financial rehabilitation.

Bridging Finance in South Africa has shown massive growth in recent years. A vast number of companies offering bridging finance have sprung up, making it essential for those needing this type of loan to carefully choose who to deal with. The interest on bridging loans is often higher than normal loans, due to its short term nature and the immediacy of the need for it, so it is vital to protect oneself against any form of abuse attached to loan offerings, especially in a country like South Africa, where a large portion of the population may find it difficult to secure more permanent loans, and relies on bridging finance to make ends meet temporarily.

For these reasons, a bridging finance regulatory body was formed in 2007 - the Bridging Finance Association of South Africa (BFASA). It has a code of conduct for members covering ethical conduct, practice rules, consumer accountability, professionalism and truth in advertising.

Various finance houses offer bridging finance in South Africa, and there is a plethora of smaller companies offering, so anyone in need of this type of short would do well to check out the market carefully, by contacting a reputable financial service provider, or contacting BFASA.
