    Re-mortgage o/c of a self-build project: any recommendations? 30th Oct 18 at 2:57 PM
    Hello all,

    Pretty self explanatory title - should be completing a self-build project (barn conversion) within the next 5 months. Bridging/secured loan taken out to fund it. Weighing up options on completion ref. lenders to see if it is worth re-mortgaging to pay off that loan in a lump and taking advantage of better rate/longer lending period?

    Has anyone got any recommendations for lenders outside of the normal high street mortgage brokers? Or similar success stories/nightmares?

    If it helps:
    Total build cost c.329,000
    Est value on completion 480,000-520,000
    Secured loan of 300,000 currently repayable over 25yrs at c.1600pm.

    Ideally Id like to bundle up all the build costs and try and get a bit of additional money to help put in final fixtures and fittings.
