Property refurbishment finances help you improve a property to rent or sell.
A refurbishment loan is a form of loan in which secured borrowing is available for landlords and developers. It is a short-term loan and highly beneficial for you if you are planning to improve your property and flip. By using this type of loan, one can increase the property’s value.
There are mainly two types of refurbishment loans – light and heavy refurbishment finance. The common difference between these two is that light refurbishment funding is for cosmetic changes to your property. In contrast, heavy refurbishment finance is for larger jobs requiring permission to make structural changes in the property. Contact our experts to explore your options.
Bridging Finance is a flexible finance option which is generally secured over property, whether it is Residential, Commercial or Land. The term of the loan ranges anywhere between 1 and 24 months. The funds raised can be used for any type of business purpose if there is a robust exit (repayment) strategy.
Development Exit Finance
This type of funding can be used to refinance a development loan onto a cheaper loan whilst the site is sold or refinanced. It can also be used if an existing development loan is approaching or has passed the agreed term, due to project delays for example, and the site does not necessarily need to be completed at the time of the refinance.
Loan Extensions & Refinance
If an existing bridging loan is approaching or has past its expiry date, we can arrange re-bridges to provide extra time and extra capital if required until your original repayment strategy can be executed.
Bridge to Let
These are flexible two stage loans which allow an un-mortgageable property to be purchased and refurbished with a normal bridging loan and then flipped onto a BTL mortgage when the property is tenanted.
Property Developers can use this type of loan to acquire or refinance land that either has planning permission or they intend to apply for planning permission for a certain type of development project. This can also be used to change an existing planning permission to increase the project viability.
These loans can be secured over property or land where a property developer intends to apply for or amend a planning permission. This would generally be done to add value to the site or increase the viability of a scheme. Developers either sell the sites on with the benefit of planning or they take the project forward themselves.
Properties bought at Auction require a 10% cash deposit on the day and the transaction needs to complete within 28 days generally. Bridging Finance can be used to help ensure the transaction completes in time and some of our lenders will use the auction legal packs for their due diligence which can cut down on set up costs.
