Our Products / Services


Property Seller Bridging Finance

The conveyancing process to register the property to the new owner and for the seller to receive his property sale proceeds can take anything from 6 to 12 weeks. Many sellers need funds beforehand for Rates & Taxes, Compliance Certificates, paying a deposit on a new property, for personal use, etc.

Marlin Credit Services can advance a portion of your property sale proceeds to you if you are selling your property, which include vacant stands, houses, commercial property, etc. No building loans, property developments, etc.


Property Buyer Bridging Finance

The process of buying a property with an approved bond or buying a property through the sale of another property you have, is usually dependent on the registration of the bond or the registration of the sale of your previous property. Typically the payment of transfer duty and costs or other relevant costs, have to be paid upfront to the conveyancer but the funds will only become available upon registration.
