Mike Collins Mortgage Advice – How a bridging Loan can help you despite the high interest rates

Mike Collins Mortgage Expert, Independent Financial Consultant, explains what bridge loans are and how you can use them in this current environment

Bridging loans, which are interest-only loans, can be taken out by people who have immediate cash needs. It acts as a bridge between credit becoming available and debt.

Anyone looking for a short-term solution can use the lifeline to help them buy or sell property, make renovations, or build work. This is often useful when time is limited.

Mike Collins, who has 17-years’ experience in financial management, said: Two in five home buyers lose their property purchase due to delays in their mortgage payments. The importance of being able and able to move quickly for the borrower is evident – and that can be done with a bridge loan.

 

“A bridging loans are typically paid back in a few weeks, which means that the interest is more managed and the loan is more affordable. I’ll be explaining bridging loans in more detail below.

Interest rates on Bridging Loans

They can be fixed. This will bring stability as long as you keep up the repayments you have made. Variable rates for loans tend to fluctuate in line with the Bank of England’s base rate of 2.25% (Sept.2022).

It is inevitable that the higher the interest rate, so are the repayments.

Rates may vary depending on how much you plan to use the loan. Rates for bridging loans to land and business bridging are typically higher than rates for residential properties.

Buyer demand is exceptionally high. This can lead to delays in the conveyancing or buying process. Bridging loans are therefore more necessary.

It is important to understand that interest rates are quoted on a monthly base when looking at them. This is due to the fact that most interest rates are 9-12 months.

Access to cash quickly

Bridging loans are faster to arrange than secured loans and mortgages, especially if timing is crucial.

Funds can be released in three days. This makes bridging loans stand out from the rest.

It’s easier to arrange, as the lending decision often depends on your exit strategy. The exit strategy is your plan for repaying the loan at the end of the term.

One can be obtained even if your credit rating is poor

Your credit rating is a major factor in whether you get a bridging loans. But, it can also have an impact on the interest rates and fees you might pay.

Bad credit doesn’t mean you can’t get one. In fact, lenders are more likely to focus on the property and not your credit score when they rate you.

 

Because the loan is secured against any asset of value, there are not lengthy checks.

 

Help for broken chains

Recent research showed that one in five applicants required a loan to bridge the gap. They were involved in a chain of events that caused them to miss their purchase timelines.

Bridging loans may be an option, as they can still allow a sale to take place, with completion times on average taking four months.

However, the current rise of interest rates could cause a dropin buyer demand and, therefore, a decline for bridging loans. For many property developers and buyers, however, loans such as these can be lifelines.

 

No matter which bridging loans you choose, be sure that they are members in good standing of the Financial Conduct Authority. This ensures that complaints, especially those involving large amounts of money can be addressed in accordance to FCA guidelines.

A group of protestors have invaded the Red Bull global headquarters outside Salzburg

A group of protestors have invaded the global headquarters of Red Bull outside Salzburg and unfurled a 400-foot banner depicting Vladimir Putin riding the company’s famous bull logo. The words “Red Bull gives Putin wings” are written in English across the top of the banner.

In a surprising move, Red Bull has refused to cut ties with Putin’s Russia, even after the country’s actions. Red Bull is still for sale in Russian grocery stores.

The protests were organized by the Ukraine Solidarity Project (USP), a network of European and Ukrainian activists exposing global brands for regressive policies on Russia. Trade deals with Russia mean that companies continue to make profits and contribute to the Kremlin, in addition to threatening global solidarity in times of economic crisis and Putin’s aggression.

Red Bull is given a failing ‘D’ grade by the respected Yale School of Management, which ranks corporations for how they do business in Russia. The drinks company says it has only suspended marketing and new investments in Russia, meaning unlike many of its competitors – such as Pepsi and Coca-Cola – it continues to sell its products there.

This week, a message from Oleksandra Matviichuk of the Friends of Ukraine 2020 party was projected onto the side of Red Bull F1 racing HQ in the UK. The message delivered an important two-minute appeal to drivers Max Verstappen and Naomi Heggella.

The Red Bull headquarters is in Fuschl, near Salzburg. Famous for its futuristic domed office buildings and a lake, the building has been the site of many campaigns. One day, USP campaigners evaded security and reached the reception building, where they proudly displayed their 20’x20′ banner.

The Ukraine Solidarity Project released a statement in which they said:

“Red Bull is a major international brand that continues to sell in Russia. This decision is highly significant and has profound implications because it signals these companies are comfortable with the illegal invasion of Ukraine. As long as they maintain their ties to Putin, they’re making it easier for him to invest in repressive policies, like illegal detention, torture, or disappearances. They need to withdraw. Meanwhile, Red Bull’s remaining in Russia means Putin gets wings.”

Red Bull has reiterated its position on Russia, stating that it has suspended marketing new investments but hasn’t pulled out of Putin’s Russia.

Survey reveals only 28% of Brits enjoy Black Friday

In November 2022, the brand Thought Clothing started a survey that simply asked Britons: ‘Do you like Black Friday?’.

The retailer, best known for it’s ethical fashion, wanted to find out the general thoughts on surrounding the sales periods in the UK and whether or not people are bored of the constant marketing surrounding retail. According to the results, they found that only 28% of Britons like Black Friday!

The Results

After completion of the survey, Thought found that only just over 28% of the public liked Black Friday, with 32.8% unsure on how they feel about it and almost 39% reporting that they actively did not like the sale period. The data shows that people in the UK may be becoming weary of the constant messaging around the sales period and as many shoppers demand more sustainable goods and services, the want for super low prices from unsustainable outlets may drop over time.

Thought Clothing has been building Thoughtful Friday since 2015 and are so proud and grateful for the continued support shown by the public. what started as a drive towards a planet-friendly alternative to Black Friday, has since turned into a great initiative promoting some of the most important charities and social initiatives in the UK and beyond.

Sustainable Shopping Tips for Black Friday

1. shop with ethical brands 

Shopping with ethical brands is a great start and whilst it can be tricky to work out which companies are backing up their claims, a bit of research online can go a long way. The Thoughtful Friday initiative is a great opportunity to find ethical clothing at a good price.

2. think about the impact of the item after the purchase 

Whilst shopping with ethical brands is great, thinking about the impact of the item after the purchase is also essential. a lot of clothing can end up in landfill so it is important to recycle old items and pass them on to someone else who will love them after you.

3. only buy items that you will love 

The third tip is to only buy items that you love, this will increase the chances of them becoming a mainstay in your wardrobe leading to good value both for you and the planet.

4. invest in better quality clothing that will last 

lastly, investing in good quality clothing will also have benefits for you and the environment as you will spend less on replacing older clothing and reduce the amount of waste that ultimately may end up in landfill or not being recycled or reused.”

The Best Forex Trading Systems

We’re here to discuss the best forex trading platform for beginners that is available. Naturally, you are familiar with trading systems and their effects on your forex account. Forex trade systems are known as strategies or laws that direct your forex transactions. They are similar to rules that tell you when to enter and exit a market, how much to risk, and what profits you should aim for. This differs from automated trading systems, which rely on robots to do all the work while you watch or supervise, depending on the situation. However, while you buy or sell currencies at your own risk, forex strategies guide you. Forex trading systems come in various forms and come from multiple sources, making it challenging to pick the best option out of several. You should conduct thorough research to produce the best that the world has to offer. Even though there are thousands, if not millions, of them, and the vast majority are not worth the time spent sorting them out, this is laborious work—which is why this article exists.

 

Considerations to keep in mind when selecting a trading system are discussed in this article.

Let’s look at the first point. The system’s profitability. Why is this crucial? Since you are occupied with money exchanges, you focus on creating gains. Therefore, you should be able to determine how profitable a system will be. Most of the time, this is calculated in pips per month. This means that when you use a good forex program in your live online trading account, it will tell you exactly what to expect when you use it to get a certain number of pips per month, like 300. The trading system is more profitable the higher the pips per month ratio. In a few months, you could also double your investment.

 

Second, the system’s historical decline. When choosing a forex trading program, the system’s maximum historical drawdown should be considered. It can be measured on a backtest or a live account and is defined as the most significant decrease in cash equity in a forex account’s history. It is typically expressed in pips or as a percentage of the cash float utilized for system testing. This drawdown is utilized for comparing various trading systems. The drawdown is also used to determine how much money you need to put into the system.

 

The system’s consistency or stability is another consideration. With stability, a forex system strategy with high-income potential and profitability is complete. This indicates that you only occasionally and irregularly have profitable trades. Imagine that you have winning trades once a month and only watch the trend for the rest of the month. It dulls the experience of trading. But if you have one that stays the same and is stable, you have everything you need to trade regularly and make money.

 

The profit-loss ratio is the next thing to think about when choosing a sound forex system, also known as a forex trading system. This is the proportion of winning exchanges to exchange misfortunes forex exchanges. The system will benefit more from this ratio. So pay special attention to a higher benefit misfortune proportion in a framework given forex exchanges.

There are a plethora of additional factors to take into account when selecting FXTM forex trading systems. Still, a good forex trading blog will help you better understand the options available to you. From various trading platforms, you can view a variety of forex trading charts in video format there.

To increase your trading success, all you need to do is contrast with the above considerations. By the end of this article, I will have made a few suggestions. I appreciate your time.

Carer with ADHD drops dress sizes after overcoming poor eating habits

A nurse and part-time carer has revealed how she’s dropped two dress sizes in six months after her ADHD diagnosis helped her understand her eating habits.

Becky Cheetham was diagnosed with ADHD over a year ago which helped her to understand her over indulging tendencies.

After joining the Goal Getters meal plan by MuscleFood, the 30 year old from Manchester has seen the pounds slip away and has learnt how to control her eating.

Becky cares for her sister Hannah who has cerebral palsy. During lockdown the siblings created TikTok and Instagram accounts which have grown to 2 million followers under their account @cheethamswithdreams.

The sisters set up the account to act like a bucket list – they wanted to tick off some of their goals whilst posting them on TikTok to share some positive news during a challenging time.

During that time Becky also saw the pounds pile on, reaching her biggest size, a size 22, it was then when she began to feel self conscious.

Growing up, Becky was always aware she had bigger hips and curves just like the rest of her family – but it wasn’t until she was older that she began to feel uncomfortable in her body.

Now, after six months on MuscleFood’s Goal Getters meal plans, Becky has dropped from a size 22 to 18.

Becky said: “I just got to a point in lockdown where I felt self conscious and uncomfortable within myself.

“Everyone in my family is on the curvier side so it never bothered me until I got older and was around other people really.

“I would say in lockdown I reached my biggest weight and that’s when I realised I needed to do something about this. It wasn’t about the number on the scales, it was about how I felt.

“Being a size 22 isn’t bad, I’m someone who’s been at both ends of the scale and has still felt uncomfortable! It all comes down to just feeling unhealthy so I needed to find something to tackle that feeling.

“After I was diagnosed with ADHD last year, my eating habits began to make a lot of sense. I used to find myself fixating on something. If I fancied a chocolate bar for example, I wouldn’t just have one, I would over indulge which is a symptom of ADHD.

“It works both ways too, sometimes I wouldn’t eat all day because I wasn’t hungry. Then at about four in the afternoon I would just binge eat.”

After starting Goal Getters, Becky saw her relationship with food begin to change. Each week, Goal Getters provides pre-portioned and calorie controlled meals and snacks straight to the door.

Meals include the Beef Ragu & Tagliatelle Pot and the Sausage, Bean and Potato Pot as well as snacks such as MuscleFood’s Chocolate Fudge Protein Cookie and the Peperami Salami and Cheese Snack box.

Becky continued:“I have tried so many diets and had no willpower but with Goal Getters I have no excuse with everything delivered straight to the door.

“A lot of other programmes like this only offer one meal a day, which is usually dinner. That meant that I was eating whatever I wanted in the day and then relying on that one meal in the evening which just isn’t going to work.

“It’s common with ADHD to forget to eat, so Goal Getters is perfect, everything would show up at my door at the start of the week, right down to the snacks!

“All I had to do was set my alarm for a specific time so when it would go off, it reminded me it’s time to go and make the meal already pre portioned for me.

“I’m also realistic with myself too and I don’t want to completely restrict myself, I’m a chocolate person, and so the fact that my little chocolate fix was provided for me was really important – it feels like a guilt free treat along the way.”

Becky used a personal trainer and began to walk a lot more alongside the Goal Getter meal plan and lost two inches from her waist, hips and chest within six months, completely recompositioning her body.

She said: “I’m someone who likes to start both things at once – diet and exercise. But I also know what works for me and I just wouldn’t have been able to jump straight into hardcore workouts. I started off making little yet effective changes like walking to my destinations instead of driving before starting my PT sessions.

“I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself so I try to be realistic in everything I do. I want to prove to people that it’s achievable.

“I’d love to drop another dress size by Christmas. But again, I’m not putting too much pressure on myself, I feel so confident in myself and I’m so proud of how far I’ve come already.”

A spokesperson at Goal Getters said: “Becky’s done amazing over the last six months and she’s seen her body completely change. She’s been realistic with her goals – which is so important – and she’s seen her body go through a period of recomposition.

This means she’s replaced the excess weight with muscle which makes her physically and mentally stronger, and she has seen the inches fall away.”

Here are Becky’s top three tips for others looking to start their weight loss journey:

  1. Be committed to the change – if you’re not passionate about making this change in your life then it will feel much more difficult.
  2. Do it for yourself – you won’t really commit to the hard work if you’re trying to please other people around you.
  3. Have everything prepared – this is often the hardest part, but having everything pre portioned with Goal Getters gives you no excuse when it comes to giving your body the right foods.
