How to get a swimming pool financing from the government
Posted On July 11, 2021
You can borrow money to buy a swimming or diving pool if you have a mortgage or a home equity loan, but if you’re borrowing to buy the swimming pool yourself, you may not be able to borrow more than the amount you have to pay.
There are some exceptions to this rule, though.
If you’re using a swimming, diving or diving-type pool, you can borrow up to £1,000 a month, if your mortgage or home equity is below the £2,500 limit.
If your mortgage is below £2.500, you’ll have to repay up to half that amount.
But if you borrow up £1.5m, you won’t have to make any repayments.
You can also borrow up $1,600 a month if you own the property, but you’ll only be able pay it back if the mortgage is over £1m.
It’s worth checking that the amount of money you’re paying for the swimming or dive pool isn’t less than what you can pay back with your home equity.
If there’s a lower limit, you might need to pay more to borrow.
If the mortgage you’re buying is a loan to buy, you should only pay it forward if you can afford it.

Here are some examples of what you’ll need to get the finance you want from the Ministry of Defence.
If a mortgage is lower than £2 million, you need to repay £1 million (or less) for each month that you have the pool.
If it’s higher than £3 million, there are restrictions on how much you can repay with the loan.
You won’t be able borrow more if your debt-to-income ratio is below 80 per cent.
The repayment period is capped at 60 months from the date of the loan and the repayment period can’t exceed five years.
The loan must be repaid within the first five years, but this will vary depending on the loan type.
There’s no minimum repayment period.
However, if you don’t repay within the loan repayment period, you could lose your swimming pool or be fined.

If money is lent from a mortgage, it’s not possible to repay it before you get a home loan.
The lender has to repay the loan within 30 days.

If interest rates are higher than the rate of inflation, you’d need to borrow at least twice the amount in order to pay off the loan, as opposed to borrowing once.
If an interest rate is lower, you don’ need to use the same repayment period as you do when borrowing from a loan.
However if interest rates were higher, you wouldn’t be allowed to repay more than half of the interest rate.
If borrowing is cheaper than buying a house, you’re allowed to borrow less if your home is worth more than £250,000.
If housing is worth less than £500,000, you still can’t borrow more, even if your bank has lower interest rates.
