We were approached by a doctor looking to purchase his first buy to let property – a 4-bed HMO in Croydon.
Hoping to build a property portfolio over time, the client had set up an SPV limited company through which to make his purchases.
There were two main challenges with this case that would limit the number of finance options available.
- Very few buy to let lenders offer 80% LTV
- The client is a first-time landlord. Most lenders like to see experience, especially when it comes to renting out HMO property
Keen to protect himself from any rate rises in the near future the client had also requested a five year fixed rate.
We took this case to an intermediary only lender, which was happy to assist.
