Mortgage Times has added Mayfair Bridging to its bridging finance panel.

Mayfair Bridging is the sixth lender to join the panel.

The Preston-based company launched on February 1 2008 and offers rates starting from 0.5% with no minimum term.

Yasin Patel, director of Mayfair Bridging, adds: “We are very happy to be linked to the Mortgage Times Group and we are confident that we can offer its members an excellent service.”
