Demand for investment in and development of student accommodation is continuing to rise as a result of growing student numbers in the UK. As a result of tightening lending criteria from mainstream banks and financial institutions, many developers are looking for an alternative financial solution which is both quick to obtain and flexible.

As a result of the increasing numbers of investors and developers purchasing student accommodation or ideal properties set to be renovated into student accommodation, speed is a necessity when sourcing finance.

Through Tiger Bridging, you can access an exclusive panel of lenders from high net-worth investors, office funds and hedge funds. Our exclusively sourced bridging loans for student accommodation are available in 2-3 weeks in most circumstances. In some circumstances, depending on individual projects, buyer profile and other external factors, funds can be available in just 48-72 hours. Loan terms range from 1-24 months.

Commercial Bridging Loan Case Studies


A business owner required £900,000 to take advantage of a timely business opportunity. The capital funds were required asap, so the entrepreneur could close the deal. Our client owned an investment property in a prime part of Central London valued at £2.5m, with an existing mortgage of £500,000.  Due to issues with his credit file in 2011 in the economic crunch, he was unable to secure mainstream buy to let funding to release the capital he required. A second charge loan was arranged for 65% LTV, including interest and fees. The client was then able to secure funding for the new business venture; with the new business able to secure refinance to take out the original second charge bridging loan.

A developer approached us to discuss a residential refurbishment property valued at £550,000.  The client was unable to secure a mortgage, due to the property requiring significant work for it to become habitable, and therefore unable to attract a mainstream mortgage.  Within a two week period, we provided a 70% LTV facility for 4 months, with the interest and majority of fee payments rolled up into the loan. This allowed the client to purchase the property and carry out the works; and in doing so, increasing the value of the completed project.  The developer then exited the bridging loan facility by refinancing the property on a normal commercial buy to let mortgage.

The client wanted to purchase a mixed use property for £1.2m, comprising ground floor shop frontage, and a tired collection of residential units, that had fallen into disrepair.  The borrower was unable to get mainstream finance to complete the purchase or conduct the refurbishment works. Through a first charge 65% LTV bridging finance facility with us, the developer was able to complete the purchase, and convert the project into 9 individual apartments over a 6 month term.
