Property firm's growing portfolio given a boost thanks to refinance package

For a property investment company looking to release equity in order to expand its portfolio, Redwood Bank proved to be the perfect match after offering the company a refinance package to support the business’ future growth.  

Such was the customer’s satisfaction with the service, they are now looking into further opportunities with Redwood Bank.  

The property investment business sought a loan to allow it to release equity from seven properties valued at just over £1.7m. Six were HMOs (houses in multiple occupation) and one a two-bedroom house let to a single tenant. Four of the properties are located in Birmingham, with the others in Leicester, Worcester and Gloucestershire.  

All seven properties are let to an agency which provides housing association accommodation. The property investment business required a refinance package to enable the company to invest in further properties, which will be let to the same agency. 


Redwood worked closely with Neil Chambers from Sirius Property Finance Ltd and offered the property investment business a loan of £1.2m.  

This allowed the customer to refinance the properties to secure equity release and continue to develop its property portfolio and future investment.  


The property investment company approached Redwood in view of their expertise for portfolio finance. In addition to increasing the loan amount from the original request, the company has since approached Redwood to discuss other opportunities similar to this one.  

Neil Chambers, Broker at Sirius Property Finance said "I was delighted to get the first completion with Redwood Bank under our belts. We finalised a £1.2m facility across a rather complex mixture of care accommodation and HMO’s. With the help of both Mark Dobson & Edward Shannon, they made it possible, always being on hand to chase through Credit requirements and lastly the legal process to get the drawdown over the line."

Mark Dobson, Redwood’s Head of Business Development, South Region, said: “It was great to work closely with Neil and the experienced property investor to complete on this refinance package which allows them to secure further investment properties in line with the growth of the business.”
