A longstanding client approached us looking to purchase a two-bed rental flat in Kent with an estimated rental value of £750 pcm.
The client is in full-time employment at a leading investment bank and also personally owns a large portfolio of 20+ rental properties. On the advice of his accountant he had set up a
Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) limited company to make future purchases, as it would be more tax efficient.
The client’s situation caused a few challenges in sourcing funds because:
• He doesn’t own his own home – many lenders prefer borrowers to own their own home before owning buy to let properties
• He wanted 80% loan to value – the majority of buy to let lenders only go to 75% LTV
• He has a large portfolio of rental properties – not all lenders will accept portfolio landlords
We took this case straight to one of the specialist lenders. Happy with the client’s income, experience as a landlord and value of his portfolio the following terms were offered.
Property value: £175,000
Loan amount: £140,000
Rate: 4.19% 5 year fixed
Term: 25 years interest only
Lender arrangement fee: 2% (£2,800)
Borrower: SPV Ltd Co
Mortgage payment: £498 pcm
Rental income: £750 pcm
Gross yield: 5.14% pa
