Broker case study: limited company buy-to-let - Sep 09, 2021
Property value: £400,000
Loan required: £150,000
Rental income: £2100 pcm
An experienced landlord has been changing from personally owned properties to limited company owned properties over several years.
One of his older properties was coming to the end of its mortgage term so he decided to have his limited company purchase the property from his personal name.
The large amount of equity held was to be used as the effective deposit.
The client’s income is mostly drawn from his let properties as he had retired from employment some years previously. His net income totalled about £20,000 (including a small pension). He is 77 years old.
We discussed the scenario with a number of lenders. The client’s low income was not a problem given his letting experience and substantial equity.
Some lenders were offering specific portfolio products which had fee free incentives, minimising his up-front costs and keeping his mortgage balance down.
