I'm considering an extension to my home and calculate I'll need around £45k. I own my home outright with no mortgage and earn a good salary. My question is, would it be better to apply for a personal loan or re-mortgage?

    You might get a better deal by mortgaging but only if you go for a shorter term mortgage.
    Stay safe, keep well and take care x

    Yea I suspect it will be easier to borrow that sort of money against the house (unless you have a very high income and no debts), and you will likely get a cheaper rate assuming it's a small proportion of the house's value.

    As above, just make sure you keep the term short.
