Home Extension Loan

A home extension loan (also called a home improvements loan) is a secured loan that can be taken when you want to expand your property or change some things within your home. This can include improvements such as a new extension, kitchen, bathroom, conservatory, conversion and many more interior and exterior changes to your home.

Why Use Truffle For Your Home Extension Loan?

If you were to get a secured home extension loan with Truffle, you wouldn’t have to pay any fees upfront to start the expansion project. However, personal circumstances play a big part in the method of funding that’s most appropriate for you. Therefore, we recommend doing your own research and getting expert advice from us regarding your personal circumstances and how it can affect your ability to get a home extension loan.

What Can I Use A Home Extension Loan For?

A great reason to take out a home extension loan is if you have run out of space in your property and do not have the funds to move into a new property. The home extension loan can be used to add extra rooms to your property for a lower fee than changing your property entirely.

It isn’t always affordable to change your property after adding on all the fees that come with it. This means that the option to extend your home can be very tempting but this type of work is still very costly. Therefore, it’s crucial that you speak to an expert for assistance with finding a suitable way to fund the project.

Second Charge or Home Extension Loans

If you have a good amount of equity in your property, a second-charge mortgage may be your best option to get a home improvement loan.

For example – if your property is valued at £150,000 and you have £50,000 outstanding on your mortgage, you would have £100,000 worth of equity, which we would class as a “good amount”.

A second charge mortgage, also known as a secured loan, is separate to your main mortgage and sits behind it. Our specialist mortgage advisors are experts in second-charge mortgages and will happily provide you with any advice or information that you may require if you wish to go down this route.

Are There Any Risks?

You should think carefully before securing debts on your property and ensure you understand the difference between unsecured and secured debts. By securing debts against your property, you increase the risk that your home may be repossessed if you fail to maintain repayments of your loan.
