Older landlord couple remortgage HMOs to get better rate

We were approached by a married couple who are experienced landlords.

They were looking to save money and lower their monthly mortgage payments by remortgaging two HMOs which had risen in value and would allow them to borrow at 65% LTV where rates are more keenly priced.

The HMOs are both located in Brighton and accommodate seven students each.

The landlords, who are both in their late sixties, wanted a mortgage term of 20+ years.

This meant that they didn't meet the criteria of some lenders which only allow borrowers up to the age of 75 at cessation of the mortgage.

We approached a lender which has an upper age limit of 90 and agreed the following terms, thus saving the couple £1,026 per month in mortgage payments.
