Utilising our years of mortgage market experience and knowledge, we have the ability to recommend our customers the most suitable buy to let mortgage product based on your personal and financial situations.
A residential buy to let in Sunderland allows you to take out a mortgage on a residential property purchase, that you intend to rent out as opposed to living in.
Most buy to let borrowers out there will probably take out their mortgage on an interest-only basis, as doing this will ensure that their monthly payments are lower because they will only be paying the interest per month.
Landlords will pay the monthly amount through the rental fees they have gathered each month. You will still need to pay off the capital in full once the term ends.
A house in multiple occupancies is the name given to residential properties that have more than two tenants and shared areas for them to use. This is often seen with student housing.
Depending on the size of your HMO, you may be legally obliged to obtain a local council license. We always recommend that you talk to the local authority in advance, so you know everything done is legal.
Because HMOs are labelled as a specialist buy to let in Sunderland products, you’ll find that there is only a select handful of mortgage lenders out there who will offer mortgage products on them. Luckily for our customers, we do have some mortgage lenders on panel who are very happy to work with HMO property investments.
HMOs often have the potential for a higher return on investment than other standard buy to let ventures. A keynote is other costs associated with these types of investments, such as local authority license fees and general maintenance of your property, especially if it is given to students.
Nowadays, more landlords are looking at their options for making their investment through means of a limited company SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle). This tends to be more prominent with experienced buy to let landlords with an extensive list of property portfolios.
When you take out a mortgage with your limited company, you tend to pay a larger interest rate and you will be limited in the range of lenders that you will be able to go to.
This can be hugely outweighed by potential tax savings. We always recommend speaking with an experienced tax advisor in Sunderland to make sure that taking this path is right for you.
Holiday let mortgages are a type of mortgage that is used for those who want to buy a property that will have various regular short-term leases over its time.
A holiday let product is also classed as a specialist type of investment, so again you will find that there are only a handful of options. To be more positive, our expert mortgage advisors in Sunderland are incredibly knowledgeable regarding holiday let lending criteria and will be able to look into your options.
If your situation is not mentioned above, then please feel free to book your free mortgage appointment. It is not often that we have encountered a ‘new’ scenario, we have dealt with all sorts.
