Loft refurb or purchase additional BTL

Steven Chung

Recommended Posts



I have a 1 bed BTL flat in North London N11, current market value of around £280k. 

I am thinking of doing a loft conversion to include an additional 2 bedrooms and bathroom. Cost of renovations should be in the region of £60k. 3 bed/2 baths in the same area have gone for £400k plus.  I could then remortgage at 70% LTV releasing a further £90k to then re-invest.


My dilemma is do I go ahead with the renovations now or use the £80k to purchase an additional BTL property. I'm keen to grow my portfolio particularly in HMO's and have been looking at other areas of England. 


Any advice appreciated,
