  • Diary of a Buy to Let Purchase Part 2 – I've made £800 already and I haven't got the mortgage yet | Mortgages for Business
    reminds me that this would be a good time to write my list to Santa Anyway instead of submitting my application online to Kent Reliance I set about filling out an application form again the thought of it is much worse than actually doing it took 15 minutes tops which I have duly sent over to Paragon together with my supporting documents Waiting 48 hours for a mortgage offer Now this is the thing with mortgages after all this excitement I now have to wait to hear whether they are going to accept my application I think I would classify this as the nail biting point of the process And it could be middle of next week before I hear The tension is palpable And the estate agent is already chasing me to find out when they will get a call to get the valuation booked in Dear God it s been less than 48 hours give me a bloody chance What type of mortgage This is probably the time to mention the mortgage product I have chosen Now I initially thought I wanted a five year fixed rate to cover me for when rates go up as a company we are very for longer term fixed rates for all the obvious reasons BUT this is my first buy to let and there is a possibility that it won t be all it cracked up to be and five years is a very long time to commit to something you may end up hating I then swung to a two year fixed but two years just goes so fast and when this rate finishes there is a chance we still be mid rate increases so I may end up with a terrible rate assuming I am actually loving being a landlord and don t want to ditch it So I have opted for a three year fixed which feels like a good middle ground I am a Libran hedging my bets is what I do Whilst I have applied for the mortgage on this rate I have the ability to change this later without any costs as long as this is before the mortgage goes to offer so given that I seem to swing like a pendulum I may change this But for now I am happy that I have made the right decision Engaging a solicitor again I also formally engaged my solicitor today Thomson Snell and Passmore in Tunbridge Wells in case you are interested We often get asked about solicitors I love this firm and they are well versed in dealing with transactions for limited companies so for me they were the perfect choice Still nearly setting up a business bank account As you can see today was extremely productive however with all this going on I didn t get round to sorting out the bank account whoops so I will try and do this over the weekend Which I blatantly won t do as we are
