Should You Pay Back a Bridging Loan Early?

Should You Pay Back a Bridging Loan Early?

A bridging loan is intended as a short term means of finance, with regulated companies typically offering a maximum loan period of 12 months, while non-regulated providers will offer up to 24 months. It’s expected that borrowers won’t hold onto the loan for too long, however paying it off earlier than the agreed-upon date is something else entirely.

A lender will almost always allow you to pay the loan back earlier than initially planned. Depending on the lender and the circumstances of the loan, you may be charged a fee for paying this back early, known as an early exit penalty. This fee is not always charged, so it’s important to check whether it applies to you before opting for an early repayment.

Will I Get Charged for Early Repayment?

You could potentially get charged by your lender for early repayment. This is known as an early exit penalty. Some lenders will charge this while others will not – check your loan agreement terms to see if you’ll have to pay this or not.

Borrowers can potentially save money on their interest payments for a bridging loan if they pay back early, as this is charged monthly for as long as it takes for full amount to be repaid. This is why bridging loan lenders may charge an early exit penalty, as they are losing money they would’ve otherwise received from you in interest if you were to have completed the loan to its full term.
