What is a Bridging Loan?
How much can I borrow with Property Finance?
The amount you can borrow will depend on various factors such as the value of your property, your credit score and your income. When you apply for a property loan with Smart Money, our team will help you assess your borrowing capacity and advise on a property financing option that is best tailored to your unique circumstances.
What is Equity Release and how does it work?
Equity release allows homeowners to unlock the equity tied up in their home, providing them with a lump sum. Smart Money Equity Release can be a flexible way to access the value of your home while still enjoying the benefits of being a homeowner.
For example, if you were to borrow £5,000 over 60 months at 6.5% per annum (fixed)* (representative 13.3% APR), the total amount repayable would be £6,757.80, of which £1.757.80 is interest. This also includes a documentation fee of £100.
