Hope Capital launches range of residential refurbishment loans

Bridging Finance

Short term lender Hope Capital has launched a range of bridging loans for borrowers undertaking property refurbishment projects.

The refurbishment range has three products. There’s Refresh, when a property requires relatively minor upgrades, Renew, a property needing moderate repairs, redecoration and refurbishment and Renovate, suitable for more extensive and advanced projects.

The range provides LTVs up to 75% on non-regulated residential property, while rates start at 0.69% on properties worth up to £3m.

The products provide up to 100% funding for a loan term between 6 – 18 months and are available throughout England and Wales.

Gary Bailey, managing director of Hope Capital, said: “Hope Capital’s short-term loan products are designed to meet the diverse needs of borrowers, their affordability and aspirations.

“There is definitely a strong demand for refurbishment bridging loans, even more so in the current climate, when investors are increasingly looking at refurbishment and development opportunities, to either improve the property, increase yield or for capital gain.

“Property refurbishment finance can be used for a wide range of requirements, from light internal redecoration, through to large extensive projects or change of use projects and are ideal for those who do not have the additional funds needed, however are looking to improve their property and therefore add value.

“The refurbishment range is a brand-new product collection for Hope Capital and will further expand our offering to existing brokers and borrowers, as well as reaching a new audience. We are looking forward to supporting our partners and clients with these options and continuing to deliver the same exceptional service.”
