What is a Property Backed Loan?

A property backed loan is type of secured loan where the property is used as security. This is ideal for a business with a temporary cash-flow shortage. It allows you to free up the equity locked up in un-bonded property to secure fast and flexible credit.

The loan facility can be structured in a few ways depending on the lenders product offering. Some examples include:

1.    As a term loan, where the borrowed amount is then repaid in equal instalments over a fixed period of time

2.    As a revolving loan facility where an overdraft facility is provided and you service the interest portion of monies borrowed on a monthly basis

3.    No monthly repayments required because interest and capital is repaid together at the end of the term. This structure is very attractive if you are working on a deal which only receives payment on conclusion.
