Aspen Completes £1.1m No Valuation Bridge In Two Weeks

03 May 2022

Aspen has completed a 72% LTV, £1.1m No Valuation bridge for a client who had just two weeks to complete a purchase and save their £150k deposit.

The developer required quick funds to acquire a large nine-bedroom detached house in Cheshire, with land, with the intention to refurbish and sell.

The 12-month bridge was completed on the lender’s Stepped Rate which starts at 0.39% per month.

Aspen’s No Valuation bridge uses a remote internal valuation assessment which removes the need for physical inspection which in turn speeds up the process from start-to-finish.

Available at quote stage up to 70% LTV for residential and 65% for commercial applications, rates start from 0.39% Stepped and 0.74% Flat for loans of up to £3m net.

Ian Miller-Hawes, Head of Sales at Aspen Bridging, said: “Our unique No Valuation product has been designed for genuinely urgent transactions up to 70% LTV at initial quote and higher thereafter, as proven with this 72% LTV case.

“The key differentiator between our lending criteria and others in the market is that this doesn’t come at a notable premium, our Stepped Rate is still 0.39% per month and our Flat Rates are 0.74%.”

Aspen’s 2022 rates and product card features a new Development Exit & Refurbishment product with up to 80% LTV for experienced developers with clean credit. Across its range Flat Rate products start from 0.64% per month and Stepped Rates from 0.39% per month.

Aspen also entered the Bridge-To-Let market with an innovative product designed to offer wider use flexibility and lower ERC’s than existing Bridge-To-Let or hybrid offerings. It is available up to 80% LTV with bridge rates starting at 0.64% pm and BTL rates of 4.49% pa.
