UK Property and Financial Calculators
A bridging loan and in the UK sometimes referred to as a caveat loan, is a short term loan that is
taken out for a few years, as opposed to other types of long term loans that are taken out for
longer periods of time. Normally, this type of loan is secured when a business or individual
needs interim finances until some other source of income falls through. When the individual’s
funds come through, the loan is then paid back to the lending source. In today's world, we
normally see these type of loans primarily in commercial real estate, for instance if a person
sees that a property is grossly undervalued, a bridge loan will be taken out until the property
value goes up, at which point the property will be sold at a profit, and the bridge loan will be
paid back. If you are curious on how much you are going to have to pay on the loan regarding
the interest, take a look at our bridging loan calculator, which will show you the exact amount
of money and interest owed on a particular loan.
Stamp duty is the type of tax in the UK that is charged on written documents and it actually
requires a physical stamp to be impressed on the
instrument that is in need of that particular
validation. In early 2000, land duty or stamp duty
land tax was introduced in any land transaction
that happened. It was later replaced by stamp
duty which is a type of transfer tax that was
imposed on any land transaction that happened
from individual to individual, or company to person
or vice versa. One great way to see how much you
are going to have to pay the government on the stamp duty, is to check out our customized
stamp duty calculator - which will calculate the exact amount that you have to pay on the tax.
A secured loan is the type of loan when the person borrowing the money puts up or "pledges"
some sort of valuable that they own, for instance: boats, car, property, jewelry, houseboat, atv,
etc. This then becomes the collateral in the transaction and is held at the lenders until the debt
is paid back in full. If the person who borrows the money ends up not being able to pay the
money back, or they default the bank will then take legal possession of the collateral in order to
make up for any money lost during the transaction. Our website has a secured loan calculator
that will calculate how much you want to borrow, the amount of repayment as well as the
interest rate on the transaction for this.
