Aspen has completed a £1.5m, 75% Development-Exit bridge on two semi-detached newbuild homes in Hertfordshire, giving the client extra time to secure market value sales.

As build control sign off and warranty were awaited, Aspen liaised directly with the build control and warranty providers to understand the project was progressing and ensure completion was not delayed.

The case was completed on the lender's Flat Rate Product across the 10-month terms, with no early repayment charge and no exit fees.

The application was handled from start-to-finish by Saif Khalique, Underwriter at Aspen Bridging.

John Smith, Senior Associate at Fieldfisher LLP and Ayesha Yunus, Senior Partner at Ola Leslie Solicitors represented Aspen and the client respectively, the latter being part of the lender's 'recommended solicitor guarantee' which will deliver all legal requirements in under 10 days.

FULHAM - £460k

First Time Buyer

The client was a first-time buyer requiring maximum leverage to purchase an off-plan, new-build flat in London and save their initial 10% deposit.

Aspen, completed on a rate of 0.59% pm for £460k at 74% LTV, on a seventh floor buy-to-let apartment in the Fulham Reach Development.

Andrew Thriepland at Capricorn Commercial who introduced the case said: "Leverage is vital for property investors, and in this particular case was essential for the applicant to secure the apartment, save their initial investment and begin their career as a property investor.

"As always Aspen, and in particular Senior Underwriter Prabhat Talwar who took the case from start-to-finish, immediately understood the aspiration and requirements and worked with all parties to ensure the funds were released as soon as possible."



A rapid £2,327,250, 73% loan-to-value bridging loan from Aspen has saved a customer's £125k auction purchase deposit and provided additional funding on a part-finished development.

Completed in just 15 days at 0.49% for six months on the lender's stepped rate product, the deal brings together both a rapid auction purchase and finish-and-exit elements under one roof.

The auction purchase, a six-bedroom semi-detached in Wandsworth, was bought at the end of August with the monies required within a 15 day period.

The part-finished development project, a five-bedroom terraced property in the same area, was purchased in 2019 and still has £140k works outstanding. The deal also includes 100% works funding.
