How are mortgages for renovation different?
Mortgages for renovation differ from standard residential mortgage deals in that they will take into consideration whether the property you want to renovate is currently in a habitable or uninhabitable state.
A habitable property is considered to be one that has a weatherproof roof and walls, plumbing, and other basic features that would allow a person to live in it at the time of purchase.
For these type of renovation properties lenders are more willing to offer high loan to value mortgage deals. However they may withhold some funds until essential repairs – for example, minor roofing repairs - are completed.
If the property you want to renovate is currently uninhabitable – for instance, a disused barn or industrial building, or a residential property that is serious disrepair and needs modernisation – then getting a high loan to value mortgage could prove a little more difficult.
Renovation Mortgage Case Study:
The client, a property developer, wanted to purchase a property and sell it on. In order to attract the sort of asking price the client wanted, the property required significant refurbishment work.
The client did not have enough finance to fund the purchase and refurbishment.
After approaching unsuccessfully a high street bank for the finance the client came to us for help.
Through our strong relationship with specialist lenders, we sourced a short-term finance deal for our client that helped them achieve their goals.
We were able to quickly raise £262,000 to contribute towards the purchase of the property. We then secured 100% of the refurbishment costs, which came to £88,000.
To minimise the cost for our client, we were able to negotiate with the lender and secure a light refurbishment interest rate.
The loan was secured and received swiftly. This allowed our client to finish the purchase and begin the heavy refurbishment of the property without delay.
The client sold the property and repaid the short-term finance with the proceeds of the sale, making a healthy return on investment.
