Masthaven’s regulated and non-regulated products include a Prime Bridging Plus product at 0.48% up to 50% LTV and 0.53% up to 60% LTV. Meanwhile the Prime Bridging mortgage now stands at 0.48% up to 50% LTV, 0.58% up to 60% LTV.

The range includes standard and specialist products that are initially available through a select number of launch partners including Enterprise Finance, Vantage Finance, Brightstar, Dynamo and Connect for Intermediaries – with wider distribution in the near future.

These will apply to residential, retail, commercial properties and land. Borrowers can use the loans for property purchase, refinance and an array of other business purposes, including debt consolidation and covering cashflow.
