The outbreak of the coronavirus has forced most people to work from home. Surprisingly, a lot of people are warming to this and are realising that working at home suits them. We are seeing that people are wanting to continue to work from home after the lockdown.
Mostly everything that you can do in an office, you can do at home. You can make video calls, access your work server, easily contact your coworkers; communication hasn’t changed.
If you are considering remortgaging for home improvements, you are going to have to remortgage your property to raise additional funds. These funds will used to make the home improvements, in this case, to make a home office. People mostly convert a spare room as it’s more convenient for an office, however, we do see people converting their garage from time to time.
To start the remortgage process, you will need to find a remortgage deal. Before you go directly to your bank, we recommend in speaking to a Mortgage Broker in Sheffield, like us.

To get the ball rolling, you are going to have to calculate an estimate in how much you think that the works are going to cost. Your works could cost anywhere between £5,000-£15,000. These costs are affected by things like the size of the room and how much work is going to be needed to be done on the room in order to get it in shape for office work.
