Landlord receives generous RTI on high-value, low-yielding property

Landlord receives generous RTI on high-value, low-yielding property

24.10.17 | Written by: Andy McOwat

We were approached by a part-time landlord looking to raise finance to expand his buy to let property portfolio.

The client, also a self-employed accountant was hoping to refinance a five-bed detached house in Cheshire.

He had been letting the property to the same family for numerous years and did not want to increase their rental payments, even as the value of the property increased. Because of this, the property was producing a low yield.

Wanting to borrow the maximum possible against the property, we needed to find a lender with a generous rent to interest (RTI) calculation for individual applicants. In January 2017, the PRA tightened affordability calculations for landlords borrowing in their personal name.

We approached a semi-exclusive lender, which can only be accessed via a select panel of mortgage brokers, including Mortgages for Business.

Selecting a five year fixed rate, we were able to secure an RTI calculation of 140% @ 4%, more generous than the standard calculation for individuals at 145% @ 5.5%. 

Here are the details of the deal:

Property value: £650,000

Loan amount: £487,500

LTV: 75%

Rate: 3.75% 5 year fixed

Term: 25 years interest only

RTI calculation: 140% @ 4%

Mortgage payment: £1523 pcm

Original monthly payment: £923  pcm

Lender arrangement fee: 0.5% £2438

Rental income: £2800 pcm

Gross yield: 6.8 % pa

Previous monthly payment: £923
