A valuer will be instructed by Oakbridge as soon the borrower(s) confirm they wish to proceed with the facility. The borrower(s) should always have independent legal representation.

5

Drawdown

Reliant on the complexity of the case, the valuer providing a satisfactory report and the lawyers completing the formalities.

Contact Us

We would love to hear from you. Get in touch to see if a loan from us can be the solution for your short term funding requirements.

Oakbridge can provide an immediate “in principle” decision for a loan within two working hours. Drawdown is reliant on the complexity of the case, the valuer providing a satisfactory report and the lawyers completing the formalities.

  • Security property must be in England, Scotland and/or Wales
  • A clear and credible repayment strategy must be provided
  • No proof of income required

Oakbridge does not check a borrowers credit report at enquiry stage and so no footprint will be left on a borrowers credit file in ascertaining whether, in principle, we can lend.

If you are an introducer who might like to become part of our network please speak to a team member.

After JB recommend I try Oakbridge for a re-bridge on a regulated case, I did.  I have to say it was a breath of fresh air – really quick and flexible with regular updates and a refreshing eagerness to get the deal done.  Heads of Terms were credit backed and not sent out flippantly and the BDM, Guy Arstall, worked with me to get the rate as keen as possible.  He also took real ownership of the case and helped push it through to completion.
