Can I transfer personally owned rental property to an SPV?

In real terms, property cannot be transferred, rather the transaction is treated as a sale by you to the company, this is also known as a related transaction.

The good news is most lenders operating in company lending will consider these applications.

Please bear in mind that the sale is a taxable event which means that stamp duty and capital gains will be due, but do check with your accountant/solicitor to confirm.
