Bridging loan for HMO requiring renovation

An experienced buy to let landlord was looking to purchase a 5-bed HMO to let to sharing professionals. The property needed renovating before it could be rented out so would not qualify for a buy to let mortgage.

Because the landlord already had considerable experience of renovating properties and operating HMOs, we were able to source a short term bridging facility at a competitive rate that would give him the time and funds to refurbish the property.

Once the house is ready to let, we will help the landlord to refinance the property onto a buy to let mortgage that works for HMOs.
