Refurbishment bridging loans are ideal for property investors looking to renovate or upgrade property.
Refurbishment bridging loans are a very sought-after arrangement for investors and entrepreneurs in the property sector who maybe short of funds to cover the costs incurred with the renovation of a property purchase. A refurbishment bridging loan can be used to fund the improvements or it can be used to help with the purchase and the projects refurbishment.
Refurbishment finance is a specialist loan offered in two categories ‘light refurbishment and ‘heavy refurbishment’ the type of project and scale of work you are looking to carry out will dictate which category your refurbishment bridging loan will fall into.
Generally, refurbishment loans are structured in a staged process whereby initially the lender will assist with the purchase and the first part of the loan is calculated on the property purchase price. The second part of the refurbishment bridging loan is paid upon certain aspects of the refurbishments being completed. This second part of the refurbishment finance is based on projected value of when the work has been carried out and completed.
A light refurbishment would be considered minor works to the property, please note that this perception can vary from lender to lender but would normally apply where planning permission isn’t required.
Examples of Light refurbishment bridging loan work:
Typically, as long as there is no significant structural work you can expect a refurbishment loan to be considered as a light refurbishment.
A heavy refurbishment bridging loan would be considered a much more structurally involved project which would be requiring planning permission. Again, the perception of heavy refurbishments can be different between lenders.
Examples of heavy refurbishment bridging loan work:
Depending on the size of the project it may be better and more cost effective to consider development finance. If the project is going to be a large-scale alteration to a property the structure of development finance can really help with costs and be structured to suit your projects needs. As with any heavy refurbishment bridging loan or development finance project its best to get sound advice from a professional that can give you a realistic indication of costs for the work and timescales to complete each stage.
