Has anyone extended their house?
We were looking at doing this in the next 4 or 5 years but my fil has just said he's happy to be a guarantor for us to get money to do it sooner.
Where do we start?
I'm thinking rough quotes from builders, check we can get the funds, proper plans drawn up, planning permission, finance sorted, start the work.
Obviously I know it won't all be as simple as that but is that the right order to do things?
Also, a couple of people told me we should be able to borrow more on our mortgage based on future value when work completed but someone else said you can't do this and we would just need to get a home improvement loan then when the work is finished re mortgage the house and pay off the loan.
Any tips welcome :-)
