The specialist lender — which announced the rate in July, having previously stood at 0.49% — is currently on track to double its loan book this year.
Jack Coombs, director at Aspen Bridging (pictured above), said: “Since the summer, the market has remained very aggressive, and to maintain our pipeline of business we need to continue to lead from the front.

“While many other lenders may use a low interest rate to ‘open the door’ to an applicant before increasing the figure during the process, we can comfortably say that all of our completed applications since July that are applicable to receive 0.45% do indeed drawdown at the advertised level.
“This is because our procedures from day one are extremely robust.
“Our service goes further than any other lender by offering one person per case, quick and accurate quotations, site visits from an experienced underwriter to every property at valuation stage and completions as fast as any in the industry.”
