REFURBISHMENT & CONVERSION FINANCE
Refurbishment finance tailored to your needs
Updating a residential or mixed-use property prior to rental can be time consuming and costly. At Bath & West we understand this and have created a bespoke product that gives our clients the flexibility to carry out medium and heavy refurbishments and conversions, such as structural works or works requiring planning permission, without having to go through the more detailed requirements of a development. It’s where we bring our expertise to your projects.
“Works on a more major scale to allow the extension or conversion of residential property come with more issues than just a quick cosmetic makeover. We understand the nuances of such projects and our products are designed to assist the more seasoned property professional as they look to undertake more involved projects.”

Our client needed a loan for build and finance costs to convert a Grade II listed building into 7 town houses: five x 3-bed and two x 4-bed. They also needed to redeem with an existing lender within a short timescale before costs began to ramp up. We had to act swiftly.
We provided a loan for £1,116,000 with an initial drawdown of £550,000 to redeem the loan with the existing lender in time. The LTV was 68% and interest at 0.95% was retained each month of the 12-month term.
