We have developed 2 interest free loans to help owners bring long-term empty properties back into use:
interest free loan - borrow up to £15,000 per property with no repayments during the loan period, no interest charges and no charges for early repayment. You can choose whether to repay the loan in 2, 3, 4 or 5 years. See our interest free loan factsheet for more information
equity release loan - borrow up to £30,000 per property with no repayments during the loan period. See our equity release loan factsheet for more information
