About Marlyn Credit

Waiting for the money to the payout from the sale of your home can take quite a while and this process is not only frustrating but can put quite a delay on your plans.

But, thanks to Marlin Credit, you will not have to wait for the money to payout. Allow us to help you get into your new home without the wait.

A lender you can trust

Marlin Credit is a bridging finance provider and as a bridging company, we provide loans to those who are waiting on the payout from their pension funds, provident funds, or property sales. Pension funds and property sale payouts can take quite some time, but this is not feasible for those who are waiting for the payment. If you have gone on pension, then you are no longer earning a monthly income, so you are relying on that pension money to come through.

When you have sold your old home, you are expecting that sale money to be paid over so that you can purchase your next home! Thankfully, Marlin Credit is here to close the gap when you need it most.

Fast assessment – the way you like it

You have done enough waiting around and do not need us to add to that frustration which is why the outcome of your loan application will be made clear within an hour. Marlin Credit prides itself in our ability to process loans with very short turnaround times – it is one of the facets that make us unique and sought after. But do not think that our efficient work comes at the compromise of quality.

Quality is ranked high on our list of values and we assure you that the deals we develop are completely unique and tailored to each individual client’s needs.

What Marlyn Credit can offer you

There is no reason to be ashamed of needing finance to see yourself through. In fact, it is very normal for these types of payouts to take time.

This is why our service is available; to provide customers with the necessary cash flow relief until the large payout has reflected.

Property bridging finance at your service

While you wait for your property sale funds to be paid over, you still need money to successfully arrange finance for your new home. This means that you need to be able to pay the deposit on the property, which can be up to 10% of the value, and you still need to survive in between.

Marlin Credit is able to arrange a bridging loan to cover expenses like the deposit and also keep you afloat with the necessary cash to make it through your day-to-day living. Bridging loans are available from a low amount of R2,000 – and the amount borrowed will be simply repaid once your property sale has come through.

Pension bridging finance

There is no difference between the services that we provide for property bridging finance and pension bridging finance. While the origin of the lumpsum value might be different, the need for bridging finance remains the same. To survive the general day-to-day cost of living, one requires a certain amount of disposable income.

And, if you are waiting for your pension to payout, you do not have this kind of cash on hand. Marlin Credit can help arrange this type of finance for you which can be repaid once your pension or provident fund payout reflects in your bank account.

Allow Marlin Credit to bridge the financial gap

If you find yourself in need of financial assistance, do not feel ashamed to ask for help. As stated earlier, it is normal to experience these types of delays.

But that does not mean that you need to suffer in silence. Complete the application and we could provide you with the financial relief you need within the day.

Online all of the time

Thanks to modern technology we have been able to move our application process to an online platform. This does not only make our application more accessible, but it enables us to assist South Africans all over the country with their bridging needs. All you have to do is complete the application on our website – it will only take a few minutes.

People who we assist with our loans

Marlin Credit is able to provide financial assistance to those who have recently resigned and are waiting for their provident fund payout, those who have been dismissed and are waiting for a lump sum payout or those who have been retrenched. Individuals waiting for funds from their property sale also qualify for our services.

Will the process be costly?

Bridging finance is a type of short-term loan and, while short-term loans do have typically higher interest rates, you will not have to keep the loan for long. It takes typically a few months to a year for payouts to be completed and the remainder of the loan can be repaid as soon as the money lands in your bank account.
