Link Lending increases appetite for bridging

Bridging and short term lender, Link Lending is renewing its appetite to lend and is currently welcoming new applications from brokers for bridging loans.

John Maclean, managing director of Link Lending, says: “We are delighted to be bucking the trend by increasing our lending activity at this time, when many other lenders are scaling back their lending or withdrawing from the market.

“Bridging finance is a highly suitable option for both residential and commercial clients who have a reliable source of long term funding in place to redeem the bridging loan in a relatively short timescale.
