Short term and refurbishment finance

Helping you make the most of opportunity

In the property business, it often pays to grab a great opportunity when you see it - and that can require fast, flexible access to funds.

Short-term finance could allow you to refurbish a property for a quick turnaround, or replace your current development finance while you’re waiting to sell. The dedicated short-term lending team at Shawbrook Bank can help you maximise your returns.

“In today's market you need a bank that can keep up with the demands placed upon its customers. Shawbrook understands these demands and removes a lot of the stress that comes with refinancing on a scale that the high street banks cannot match.”

What can I do with short term property finance?

We provide tactical short term funding solutions to the professional investor, landlord and SME community where you are looking to;

  • Add value by refurbishing for sale or rental
  • Raise finance to purchase additional properties
  • Replace existing development finance while waiting to sell

Unlike many lenders, we don’t restrict the number of properties held by an individual or within a limited company. And we don’t insist on you having a minimum income generated outside of your property portfolio.
