Generally bridging loans in the UK are applied for a commercial and residential purpose. Many get confused about the cost i.e., the interest that has to be paid for the bridging loan. There are different types of interests based on different calculations.

The interest that has to be paid also differs based on the purpose they choose. Different purposes require different fulfillment so there are different types of bridging loan interests.

There are mainly 3 types of interests

    • Serviced interest

This is a general type of interest like a mortgage loan. The interest that accumulates is paid on monthly basis. This type of interest is generally not preferred by the people. Monthly payment is not possible for some people.

It is also difficult to get profit or income just in a month after the start of respective purposes. But sometimes it is risky to pay big interest amount suddenly rather than paying through monthly installments which are more convenient.

    • Rolled up interest

This is the most commonly used interest method by the borrowers. Borrowers are free during the term of the loan. They have to pay the interest at the end of the term. This type facilitates the borrower till the end. He need not have the burden of paying interest on a monthly basis the calculation of interest is easy and simple as we have to pay totally at last.

But some people do not prefer this because paying the interest fully at the last itself is a burden. This differs with the retained interest that the lender does not charge interest on the interest that already been added to the lent amount.

    • Retained interest

A Lot of borrowers get confused with the retained and rolled up interest. Though they both seem to be same, they are different when it comes to calculation of interest. This interest is also paid at the end of the term i.e., no need of monthly payment.

The retained interest paid is slightly higher than all the three interests. This type charges interest on the interest that already added to the loan amount. Simply it is borrower borrows even the interest payment of the loan which makes the interest to increase in the whole.

Out of all the three interests retained interest face more controversies and disagreements. Some see the retained interest as mystery and try to avoid. Every interest has its own feature and advantage. Surprisingly retained interest is the most popularly followed method in the UK.

The range of term that generally picks up is from 6 months to 18 months. As the loan offered is short-term when compared to other loans the interest is a bit higher. This interest may vary from 0.35% to 1.5% according to the purpose requirement. The funds will be given to the borrower within a day or two. Generally, commercial loans have more interest rates than residual loans.

Some loans also have the term ranging from 6 months to 5-year duration. Finanta gives required the bridging loan with best comfortable interest rates which make the borrowers satisfy and the company trustworthy.
