Residential bridging loan to buy development site for two barn conversions

£150K

How do artists keep body and soul together while pursuing their artistic vision? By also being clever property developers…

The Scenario

Our client is a notable equestrian artist who owned a £275K house that her elderly parents lived in.

She had an opportunity to purchase a development site at a very good price, and convert the two barns: one as a home for herself and her parents, and the other to sell.

The £150K of finance she was looking for, secured against the current residence, was to be roughly split 50-50 to cover the purchase and conversion costs.

The Solution

This was a fairly straightforward bridge-to-purchase.

The biggest challenge was the intended use of the finance: not all lenders are keen on derelict property conversions. But we knew where to take this proposal.

There was no issue with her parents signing the necessary “waiver of interest” in the property they were currently living in (this will always require that they have independent legal advice).

Finance was arranged in a matter of weeks, despite the Christmas hiatus, at a market-leading 0.59% per month.
