Catalyst bolsters the bridgingmarket with increased 80% LTV options

Catalyst today announces that it is increasing LTVs across its “First chargebridging”, “Refurbishment bridging” and “Second charge bridging” ranges.

Following last week’s launch into the buy to let market, the specialist lender is today refreshing its bridging rangeand introducing higher leverage options.

First charge bridging is now available up to 80% of Open Market Value (was 75%) and second charge bridging is now available up to 75% of Open Market Value (was 70%).

Refurbishment bridging is now available up to 80% of Open Market Value (was 75%) on the light refurb option. With Catalyst, ‘Light refurb’allows for a refurb budget or total build cost (inclusive of professional fees)up to 50% OMV/50% GDV and up to 25% property footprint expansion.

The new, higher leverage options are available for loans from £100,000 to £500,000.The lender’s standard loan sizes range from £100,000 to £10,000,000.

Chris Fairfax, CEO at Catalyst says: “We believe higher LTV options for bridging and light refurbishment borrowers are going to be in stronger demand in the short and medium term; Catalyst believes this area is currently undeserved and represents good risk when carefully analysed”.
