I'm trying to find out if I can do a bridging loan - it will take out the 1st charge
There is a loan which has a debenture
A majority of the loan will go
The re-mortgage will clear everything
Expert:  Property Lawyer replied 9 months ago.

you can use bridging finance in this way, it is the same as a standard mortgage.

Bridging is generally used in the short term, hence the name, as it is generally a more expensive option than standard mortgage finance.

You state that the majority of the loan will go - what do you mean by that? the bridging lender may require a first legal charge and that will mean that all of the current mortgage will need to be redeemed (unless only a small part of it will remain and you can get the current lender to enter into a deed of priority whereby the bridge will take priority over it, not easy to obtain).
