Hi,The other expert does not appear to be online, so I will try to assist. If the property has been transferred into your name, you can possibly obtain a mortgage on the property which should provide you with funds to renovate the premises.The alternative is to obtain a unsecured loan from your bank.One final option would be to obtain a bridging loan, however, these are notoriously expensive. This by nomeans constitutes financial advice.I would strongly suggest that you visit a local regulated financial advisor to ascertain the best options for you based on your personal circumstances.I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.Kind regards,

I was advised rather than a mortgage an Equity release loan would be the way to go? As I have no mortgage and am therefore unencumbered.

Though I see that they all seem to quote for over 55 year olds at least.
