Couple in their 70s receive 25 year term on ex-LA flat

We were approached by a married couple looking to re-configure their property portfolio on the advice of their accountant.

The couple, who currently own 50 rental properties had been advised to begin selling their low-performing properties and transfer ownership of their remaining ones to that of an SPV Ltd Co.

In reality this type of transaction is not a straight ‘transfer’ – the couple must in fact sell their properties to their SPV limited company at open market value.

The first property the couple had decided to sell to their SPV is a two-bed ex-council flat within a small block in Manchester.

Several factors meant the finance required would need to come from a specialist lender.

  1. The applicants are both retired and rely on rental income as their main source of income
  2. The couple were looking for a 25 year term, which would take them both into their late 90s
  3. The property is ex-local authority
  4. This transaction would be classed as an associated transaction

We took the case to Keystone Property Finance – a specialist lender which doesn’t impose any age restrictions on those borrowing via a limited company. Deeming the couple a good risk, the following terms were offered:
