Trusted Mortgage Advice | Neil Soundy Financial Services – BUY TO LET LIGHT REFURBISHMENT MORTGAGES FOR LANDLORDS


If a property needs refurbishment, it’s common sense to get the work done. Sometimes you need to make improvements before the property is suitable for tenants; sometimes you know that certain minor refurbishments may add value to your property investment, or increase the rental yield. So you need a mortgage deal that allows you to go ahead with the necessary work

With a Light Refurbishment mortgage, it may be possible to take advantage of an investment opportunity. If a property needs modernisation, you can go ahead knowing that the money spent on refurbishments could be replenished when the work is completed. Eg New kitchen /bathroom etc
