CrowdProperty Comments

This is an ideal opportunity to convert a tired bed and breakfast into a multi tenanted HMO. With fire doors, emergency lighting and existing bathrooms in place the borrower will only be looking to upgrade the communal areas, redecorate internally and refurnish.

Some improvements to the exterior will be required to enhance the car parking but structural work will be to a minimum.

David is clear on his exit strategy and by refinancing and holding he will be adding to his growing property portfolio.
