Buying a property at auction, and need auction finance?

Auction finance is used to raise capital quickly to complete the purchase of a property bought at auction. Once making the winning bid, typically, you have up to 28 days to complete. Auction finance is used to give the borrower more time to source a longer term solution.

When buying a property at auction, buyers typically need 10% of the purchase price to put down as a deposit, the rest needs to be paid within 28 days. Auction finance is another term used for a short term bridging loan and it is used by borrowers to raise capital to cover the rest of the cost of an auction property. It is a type of finance that provides the borrower the much needed time to find either longer term solution or another source of capital to repay the loan. 

Auction finance lenders step in when there is a much shorter timeframe for completion. Some lenders can complete extremely quickly and The Finance Company can help you find the right lender who is able to complete in your required timeframe and at the best overall package for you.
