New Build & Development
Mortgage offers on new developments are typically valid for three to six months although some deals will have a specific deadline for completion. When the completion date is longer than six months, buyers will have to risk a deposit before a mortgage can be approved. Buy-to-let mortgages are traditionally 1-1.5% higher than a homeowner's mortgage rate.
Buy-to-let mortgages are only suitable for people who want to invest in houses and flats. You will usually need to own your home, whether outright or with an outstanding mortgage, to be able to get a buy-to-let mortgage.The maximum you can borrow is linked to the amount of rental income you expect to receive. Lenders typically need the rental income to be a quarter to a third higher than your mortgage payment (25-30%).
The most popular reason for buy-to-let remortgaging is to release equity from an existing buy-to-let property in order to put down a deposit on another property. If you own enough of the equity in your property, you could remortgage and release some cash to put down a deposit on a new home. You may also wish to remortgage off a variable rate and onto a fixed rate to protect your investment against future interest rate rises.
Student lets can be split into either purpose-built student accommodation or houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs). You are able to obtain a mortgage for both these types of property. Not all lenders allow students as tenants or allow the offspring of the investor to live in the property. Please see HMOs or purpose-built student accommodation for more information.
Commercial mortgages are used to buy business premises or to buy an existing business in its entirety. Whether it's a mortgage for leisure, retail office, or even agricultural, we have access to the best and lowest commercial mortgage rates. Obtaining a commercial mortgage is based on the ability of your business to make the repayments. We provide free and detailed quotations for any specific property investments.
Houses of Multiple occupancy are rental property that may need a dedicated mortgage due to the number of occupants or households within it. Fewer lenders will provide loans for HMOs but we are able track a few that provide HMO finance depending on the number of tenants. The gross rental income must cover at least 150% more than the monthly mortgage payment and larger deposit (35%) is expected.
British Ex-pats have several choices including our peer-to-peer lending company, Assetz Capital to buy investment property. Applicants must be working abroad in an approved list of countries on a suitable income. Foreign nationals outside of the UK are limited but we can accommodate Chinese Nationals, Singapore Nationals, Hong Kong Nationals via our relationship with the Bank of China.
Mortgages for purpose-built student accommodation are available through our commercial lenders. The minimum loan amount is £75,000, which is sometimes more than the value of the unit meaning minimum purchase is at least 2 units to obtain a mortgage. Student property mortgages are only available following completion of the purchase via a remortgage.
The high-street lenders don't like the sporadic nature of the rental income and prefer the security of a six-month assured short-hold tenancy. Assetz Finance is able to obtain mortgages for holiday lettings for experienced investors. Lenders will typically look for gross rental income to be equal to 125%-130% of the mortgage payment. This is available now.
