How to finance a home extension

Of the many things learnt over the last 14 months, it’s clear that improving our homes’ – whether that be installing new windows, doors, or a glorious glazed extension – genuinely has a positive impact on our own mental and physical wellbeing.

Of course, the pandemic has not been kind to the finances of many homeowners throughout Britain. If this sounds familiar but your existing extension needs fixing up or you’d like to add considerable value to it with a modern home extension, home improvement finance could be the answer.

Allowing for essential home improvements on a payment plan that suits you, we’ve broken down each extension finance package accessible through SEH BAC for ease.

What does APR mean?

APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate and is the cost of credit on an annual basis. So, a 0% APR package means that 100% of every payment made is applied to your loan. 10% APR means you will roughly pay around £100 annually per £1,000 borrowed. The general rule is the more you borrow, the lower the APR tends to be.

Can you remortgage to pay for an extension?

It is possible to remortgage your home for significant home improvements like an extension, but it will depend on your property, your existing mortgage loan, and your current financial situation. There are many factors to consider and remortgaging shouldn’t be taken lightly, so be sure to seek advice from a qualified expert to find out how much remortgaging your property will cost and what needs to be considered before going ahead.

Use savings to fund vital home improvements

Take your time to work out the full cost of any borrowing and, where possible, use savings instead of borrowing. If you’re unsure, The Money Advice Service offer free and impartial advice on debt and borrowing here.
