What is refinancing?
Refinance loans, also known as re-bridging loans are used to literally settle an existing loan by way of taking out another loan. There are a number of reasons why you might require refinancing but most likely, in the case of refinancing a bridge or development loan, it will be because the original loan term will stop before an exit through sale or longer term finance is possible.
Why has there been a surge in refinancing?
Re-bridging has experienced a surge in requirement during the past 18 months due to significant pressures on construction schedules brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit. Property development timescales have been negatively impacted from both labour shortages and material supply issues in the UK causing many developments to over run. The impact has been more acute for the small to mid-sized developers where they typically don't have as robust a supply chain in contrast to larger developers.
Its not merely construction schedules that have caused the spike in refinancing. COVID-19 has impacted the capability of almost all stakeholders within the supply chain including brokers, valuers and solicitors. As with all challenges however some good has come from it, not least of all an increase in the acceptance of desktop valuations, saving significant time and costs.
With no immediate end in sight of these challenges its likely that refinancing will increase further in requirement in the short to medium term.
