Add an extra room with a loft conversion loan from Hitachi Personal Finance

If you love your home but you’re a little short on space, a loft conversion could buy you an extra room without having to move. What’s more, it could also potentially add value to your home when it’s time to sell.

What is a loft conversion loan?

A loft conversion loan gives you the total amount you need for both the materials and the labour to have your loft converted into a usable room, whether it’s an additional bedroom, a study, a children’s playroom or anything else you had in mind.

You will borrow at a fixed APR at a pre-agreed monthly repayment amount that suits your budget.

Is a loan the best way to fund a loft conversion?

An unsecured personal loan could be a great way to fund the conversion of your loft into an additional room for your home. Depending on the size of the space and the location of your home, the amount you can borrow could be enough to pay for the whole project, meaning you could get the extra space you need straight away, paying it back over the next few years in manageable monthly repayments.
