Uses

We provide complex buy-to-let mortgages for a variety of uses including:

Houses of multiple occupation, (otherwise known as HMOs) are an excellent way for a landlord to maximise rental income from one property. These rental property types are more complex and there is more legislation involved, therefore obtaining a buy-to-let mortgage requires expert knowledge.

Unlike residential buy-to-let mortgages, a property purchased to let out for short-term stays and holiday lets requires a more complex mortgage. 

Multi-unit freehold blocks (also known as MUFBs) can be extremely profitable for landlords and property professionals. Where the building has one single freehold title the yields from the individual units within can be appealing. However with this profitability comes complexity, this is where a specialist broker with experience in this property type can help navigate the mortgage market.

Expense should be considered in terms of how much the overall cost will be for your client. This can often be categorised in two ways;

1. Financial Benefit - Your client purchases an unmortgageable property for £100,000 at auction. With use of a bridging loan, they are able to complete renovation works of a new bathroom and kitchen, the property sells for £150,000. Once costs have been taking into account from the £50,000 return on the sale, it eliminates the perceived expensive nature of the bridging finance used. It is no longer expensive finance, but the only finance available to achieve this opportunity.

2. Emotional Benefit - A landlord client’s buy-to-let mortgage lender pulls out at the last minute, and they are already in their notice-to-complete period, having already exchanged. With the flexibility of a bridging loan, a case can complete in days – saving the landlords deposit and avoiding losing the investment property as they can still complete on the new purchase and then have a period of 24-months to arrange traditional finance on the property to replace the bridging loan.

The expense of bridging reflects the risk the lender is taking in the lending decision. They operate minimal underwriting and often secure against unmortgageable, unmarketable properties that finance could not be obtained for through traditional routes. Bridging generally carries no redemption penalties, so with some lenders, after the first month, the client is free to redeem the loan.

This all contributes to the higher interest rate the client will be charged above traditional finance.
