Hi all - first time poster here!  

 I am shopping for a personal loan to cover $20k worth of costs for a rehab project.  The funds will be used for labor and to help pay some of the mortgage during reno. After reno, the property will be rented out.

Q: Does it make sense to apply for a 'Home improvement' loan if it's not my primary residence?  Do I need to specify the 'loan purpose at all?

Thanks in advance,

Sean
