Refurbishment finance is a bespoke financial product, with flexible terms and conditions to suit all requirements. However, most refurbishment finance loans fall within one of the following two categories:

  • Heavy refurbishment - Where significant renovations and structural improvements to a property are conducted, typically equating to 15% or more of the property's total value. Examples of which include property extensions, attic conversions and commercial to residential repurposing.
  • Light refurbishment - Typically cosmetic in nature, light refurbishment projects seek to improve the comfort, appeal and practicality of a property without major structural works being involved. The project's costs will usually equate to no more than 15% of the property's total value.

Types of Development Finance

When looking for development finance it is important to identify the type of project being planned by the developer in order to access the correct funding product. Types of works can include:

ground up build development finance

Ground up builds

New builds nearly always require development finance loans. Once the project is completed, developers may use development exit finance as a more cost effective solution, but this cannot be done before the project is watertight.

property conversion or restoration finance

Large scale restoration and property conversions

for this type of project refurbishment finance is typically the correct type of loan to use, however if the project is larger than the norm, development finance may be a better alternative.

property refurbishment finance

Property refurbishment

a refurbishment loan, which is a type of bridging finance, is generally used for property renovations. It can be used for various improvements including, installing a new roof, general structural changes, building an extension, refurbishment, and decoration.

How is Development Finance Repaid?

Development finance loans are typically paid in one of the following three ways:

Paid in full

the total loan amount is paid in full, using the profits, when the project is complete, and the properties have been sold.

refinance with long term loan

Refinancing using a long term loan

this usually happens when the developer wants to keep the development for either personal use or for rental purposes.

development exit finance

Refinancing using a Development Exit Bridging Finance

this type of short term loan is often used to fund a new development project before the current project is sold. It can also be used to give developers a bit of breathing space to complete minor works and find buyers.
