It is granted when the price of the new property to be acquired is less than or equal to approximately 70% of the price of the property offered for sale, net of credits.

The bridge loan accompanied by a mortgage


In the case where the bridge loan is not sufficient to finance the new property, the borrower must also pay a mortgage.

Until the sale of the first asset is effective, the borrower must repay the loan interest on the bridge loan (the payment of which may, however, be deferred for resale), in addition to the conventional home loan.

This can therefore be added to existing loans on the property for sale, unless the bank has agreed to refinance them through the project financing, which offers better control of the maturities.
