I approached 978 Bridging after other brokers and lenders could not provide what I needed for my upcoming project. It was a tricky deal with big time pressures but the guys just got on with it. The team provided an excellent service. Lee was efficient and hard-working, working out of hours if needed and Simon was readily available to provide support when necessary. I was impressed by how swiftly suitable terms were put in place and communication was prompt and clear throughout. I would definitely recommend the business and look forward to working with 978 in the future.
Simon was available evenings and weekends on top of normal working hours. Amazing service and turnaround time. Nothing was too much trouble!
978 Bridging worked with us to secure funding for a mixed used property in Merseyside. Consisting of a 15 bedroom HMO above commercial units, with adjoining outhouses 978 Bridging sourced finance for 100% of the purchase price based on Open Market Value and worked with us during the negotiation of the purchase. The particular quirks of the asset, combined with some short term financial issues for our company, would have made the purchase impossible via traditional lenders. We were able to draw on 978 Bridging’s close relationships with their lenders to progress the deal. After completion, 978 Bridging and their sister company 978 Investment have assisted with the on going redevelopment of the site, including the complex process of refinancing and ultimate marketing for sale of the property on a split-title basis. Anyone who has completed a complex property transaction will know that the traditional 9 - 5 approach to business simply does not work. 978 Bridging were flexible and on call ‘after hours’ matching their availability to the nature of the deal.
I recommend 978 Bridging as they have excellent knowledge and connections in the finance world, and that is apparent from the manner in which they interact between parties. The resilience and determination of the team enabled the completion of a very complex purchase. I felt in excellent hands.
