Non-homeowning couple refinance BTL in SPV Ltd Co

The clients are a married couple who own two buy to let properties in an SPV limited company, although they don’t own their own home. 

One of the properties is owned outright, the other, a terrace house in a large Lancashire town, has a small mortgage on it.

The husband, 71, is retired and receives an income in excess of £25k pa. The wife works full-time. 

They approached us for help in refinancing the mortgaged property so that they could release equity to expand their portfolio.

Our challenge in finding a lender was three-fold – as many lenders 

1. Insist that borrowers own their own home

2. Will not provide finance to SPVs

3. Only provide finance to borrowers up to 75 years of age – the couple wanted a longer term.

Finding a lender that would accept all three nuances of the case did reduce the options; however, we found a specialist that was prepared to help on the condition that the specialist become the sole lender to the SPV.
