Buy to let purchase from a family member

An elderly grandparent moving in with his daughter’s family wished to sell his property to provide him with capital for his dotage. He was no longer well enough to live on his own.

The family didn't want to lose the house so the grandson has agreed to purchase it at full market value.

Associated transactions are frowned upon by most buy to let lenders these days but we found a lender happy to help. Whilst the grandson did have the deposit available in cash the lender would have been happy to allow a sizable gifted deposit as well.

Property value: £425,000

Loan amount: £340,000

Loan to value: 80%

Term: 20 years interest only

Rate: 5.24% 2 year fixed

Lender arrangement fee: 2%

Completion date: October 2013
