Dreaming of a home transformation?

Let’s make your home improvements a reality!

Remortgaging for either renovations or home improvements can be done in two ways: either through remortgaging with a new lender to free up additional borrowing, or staying with your current lender and borrowing more.

Perhaps you’re considering a new bathroom or an extension? You know the cost of the planned home improvements, and through remortgaging with a new lender, you can borrow additional funds on top of the value of your home. Your new mortgage will be the property value, plus the required value for the property improvements.

Alternatively we may be able to negotiate with your current lender to agree additional money borrowed on top of your existing mortgage. This can depend on how much your property may have changed in value, or how much of the mortgage you have already paid off.

Types of renovations possible with a home renovation remortgage include:

  • Loft extensions
  • Modernisation and renovation
  • Repairs e.g. new windows
  • New bathroom or kitchen
  • Other property extensions
  • Interior design e.g. new flooring
  • Landscaping or a new driveway

Can I remortgage for home improvements?

Remortgaging for house renovations is possible as long as you have the correct proportion of loan-to-value (LTV) and equity held in the property to release additional funds, the property changes require planning permission, and whether you hold other outstanding debt.

Some mortgage lenders will require a minimum LTV to proceed with your application, and a standard level of credit score. Once we have a good understanding of your financial situation, we can advise the most suitable options available to you.

Key things to consider

The amount of equity and loan-to-value (LTV) of your property

Some lenders impose a loan-to-value cap for home improvement remortgages. There are a number who set the limit at 75%, a few 80-85% and others who offer 90% and up. As whole-of-market mortgage brokers, we can research the market to find the most suitable mortgage offer for you.

The cost of proposed renovations

It’s worth obtaining a few quotes from different supplies or builders to ascertain the cost of the repairs or improvements you want to carry out. Once you have a good understanding of the total cost of the work, we can help negotiate additional borrowing on your mortgage.

Verifying if planning permission is required

Planning permission isn’t usually needed for an extension or renovation (most extensions are classed as permitted developments) however it’s worth noting that building regulations approval is generally necessary for most extensions. It is also advisable to consult with your local council to address any specific considerations that could be specific to your location.

Debt or credit file report

For a remortgage a credit file is a required aspect. Having bad credit doesn’t always affect your application, and it is now possible to borrow up to 90% loan to value, or even more, with some bad credit mortgage lenders. Your choice of remortgage rates and deals will likely depend on the type of issues on your record and how long ago they happened, as well as the reason for your credit. Once we have discussed and understood your situation, we’ll be able to find the most suitable lender and help you create the home of your dreams.
