B.R.R.R. PROPERTY JOURNEY SERIES
What does B.R.R.R stand for?
B.R.R.R. stands for Buy, Refurbish, Rent, Refinance. This property investing strategy entails the purchase of a property, adding value through renovation, renting it out and then refinancing onto a term buy-to-let mortgage to extract funds for further investment.
B.R.R.R. has proven to be effective for many landlords across the UK, allowing them to grow their portfolios. Here are the steps:
Buy: Buy the property with the assistance of a 75% LTV short term loan – investors can also source an additional 10% for refurb works. The additional 10% applied to light refurbishment projects only where properties do not require planning or significant change to the layout of the property.
Refurbish: Complete the works to increase the value and rental income.
Rent: Use a virtual tour to line up your tenants and start to see the rental income come in.
Refinance: Refinance the property with a buy-to-let mortgage worth 75% LTV of the confirmed GDV figure and release capital from the project.

A recent client success:
Clients purchased a derelict, partly vandalised property in need of a full refurbishment. CPC Finance arranged a short term loan in order to complete the purchase and release additional funds for the refurbishment works to be carried out. The clients completed the refurbishments required and re-mortgaged on to a term facility.
You will need an exit route in place for the finance. Once the refurbishment is completed, it can usually be switched to a term loan if you wish to retain the property to rent out. Alternatively, the exit route can be to sell the property.
Flexible repayment options are available to allow you to choose between retained, rolled and serviced payments.
Get in touch today to discuss your refurbishment needs in more detail.
