What is the meaning of regulated bridging finance?
From about 2007 to roughly 2011, not only the Britsh economy, but most of Europe's and America's financial industry went through something that was termed a credit crunch which is just a nice way of saying recession. Many large financial institutes relaxed their borrowing requirement and often lent money to people that could afford the repayments. The knock on effect was lots of property repossessions on a grand scale. This in turn meant the lenders themsevles went out of business. Even large banks in the UK got 'bail outs' from the British Government.
This led to an independent financial watchdog being set up. The main goal was to make sure banks and building societies had a set group of rules or regulation to adhere too when lending secured finance. This regulations are still in place today to stop borrowing for people that simply cannot afford to repay. Hence the term regulated, or in our case, regulated bridging loans.

So in essence, a regualted bridging loan can only be set up if you as a borrower fall into certain lending categories, mainly can you afford the repayments and what is the likelihood of you r home being repossessed.
Because of all the extra paperwork and cost incurred setting Government set up lending criteria, all banks and building societies couldn't find it financially stable to continue to offer bridging loans.
You can now only get bridging loans, either unregualted or regualted direct from a private bank or independent lender like us. Feel free to speak to us to discuss what type of funding would be best for you.

The HSBC is regulated
There is no unregulated, high value, secured finance option with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. That said, in the UK, the also do not offer regulated HSBC bridging loans. Quite simply, with the amount of work they have to put into the implementation and the strict guidelines in place by the Government, it is simply not cost effective for them to offer a short term secured option.
The TSB is regulated
The Trustee Saving Banks is now again it's own entity since separating from Lloyd's bank. However it doesn't have a TSB regulated bridging option option. As a High Street bank it is also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and cannot offer unregulated finance either. However we can offer both financing packages.
