  • Very popular buy to let mortgage about to be withdrawn | Mortgages for Business
    very popular product will be withdrawn on Monday 30th November 2015 It s very unusual for a buy to let lender to give us reasonable advanced warning of a rate withdrawal but a lender has done just that on one of its most popular limited edition products This semi exclusive product which will be withdrawn on Monday 30th November 2015 is 3 99 4 2 APR fixed for 5 years It has some pretty good features Up to 80 LTV Remortgages only Loans up to 1m No credit scoring each case individually assessed No portfolio restrictions professional landlords and property developers welcome Max age 79 at application 85 at end of term Don t have to be residential home owners if they already own a buy to let Will lend above commercial properties up to 75 max 60 if above fast food outlets Full product details can be found below Why is it so popular The rent to interest RTI cover calculation is a very generous 125 3 99 pay rate This is equivalent to a huge 240 x monthly gross rent which means that investors can borrow more than on most other products the average RTI is normally 125 5 00 Recently many lenders have revised their rent stress tests upwards so it is particularly disappointing that this rate is about to go What to do if you want this rate You will need to act very quickly If you are interested in this rate do get in touch today as we will need to get a fully packaged application into the lender by Friday 27th November 2015 The rate is from intermediary only lender Aldermore Mortgages As a semi exclusive offering this product is only available via a limited number of brokers including Mortgages for Business My direct line is 01732 471608 or you can speak to any of my colleagues on 0845 345 6788 Get a personalised quote for this product now Often lenders do not give us much or any advanced warning of product withdrawals Not so long ago I submitted a buy to let mortgage application for a particular rate to a lender on behalf of a client When the offer came back the client noticed that the product was completely different Not only was it different it was not anywhere near as competitive as the original one I contacted the lender and was told that the product we had been withdrawn on the day we submitted the application so they substituted another in its place Nice of them to tell us not Naturally I complained and after a bit of jostling the lender offered the client a product that was actually much more competitive than the original rate she had chosen so it all turned out well in the end Why are products withdrawn Lenders allocate tranches of funds for particular products When the tranche has been used up the products are withdrawn Usually new products are introduced on a fresh tranche of funds

  • Investing in buy to let: Trading Ltd Co’s versus SPV Ltd Co’s | Mortgages for Business
    to let Trading Ltd Co s versus SPV Ltd Co s 24 11 15 Written by Gary McKenna Gary McKenna consultant mortgage broker at Mortgages for Business explains the difference between a trading limited company and an SPV and examines the buy to let mortgage options available for both The number of investors opting to finance their buy to let through a limited company is on the rise Here are some answers to the most common questions I get asked by investors thinking of going down this route What is a trading limited company A trading limited company is a legal structure set up to run a business The company takes responsibility in its own right for everything it does and its finances are separate from your personal ones Owners of a private limited company are legally responsible for its debts only to the extent of the amount of capital they have invested As the trading suggests these companies are active trading vehicles Here is an example of someone who uses their trading limited company to invest in property An IT consultant sets up a private limited company He uses the company to run his IT consultancy He also uses the company to invest in buy sell and rent out buy to let property What is an SPV limited company A Special Purpose Vehicle SPV limited company is a non trading company that exists solely for buying selling and letting property Here is an example of someone who uses their SPV limited company to invest in property An IT consultant sets up a limited company from which to run his IT consultancy Separately he also sets up an SPV limited company from which to buy sell and rent out buy to let property For tax and accounting purposes the operation of and income from both companies are separate Which one should you use to get a buy to let mortgage From a lender s perspective applications from SPVs are quicker and more straightforward to underwrite than applications from trading limited companies which require a greater level of understanding by the individual underwriter Because of this there are more options available for SPVs and the pricing tends to be lower so personally I would urge those looking to invest in buy to let property to do so through an SPV rather than a trading limited company Saying this there are still good options for trading limited companies although to achieve the competitive rates your business will need to be strong financially and have at least two to three years of accounts With either option lenders will require full personal guarantees from all of the directors As I write 23rd November 2015 there are currently 95 products available to SPV limited companies and 10 products available to trading limited companies equating to around 10 of the entire buy to let market In my opinion this figure is only set to rise with more and more landlords now looking to borrow via a

  • Council of Mortgages Lenders predicts first rate hike to be postponed until 2017 | Mortgages for Business
    by Steve Olejnik In its Market Commentary November 2015 published this week the Council of Mortgage Lenders CML states that the UK may not see its first rate hike until 2017 and estimates that gross mortgage lending was 21 8 billion in October nearly a fifth higher than a year ago While the report states that the economic picture for the UK continues to be relatively positive and that household incomes this year are experiencing their strongest growth in real terms since the crisis it goes on to say that Concerns about global prospects have materially lowered market expectations for interest rates in just a few months The Bank of England s monetary policy committee s MPC projections are based on the market implied path for bank rate and this now suggests a much more gradual pace of monetary tightening than it did in August In the face of global weakness the MPC judges that domestic demand needs such support to eliminate any remaining spare capacity in the UK economy and to bring consumer price inflation back up to its 2 target in two years the report states Near term housing sentiment will be boosted by the prospect that the first quarter percent rise in UK rates may be delayed until the second quarter of 2017 compared with the estimate of the third quarter of 2016 just a few months ago Turning specifically to mortgages CML s commentary highlights that fact that mortgage lending is now enjoying its strongest spell since the financial crisis and that annual growth in mortgage balances reached 3 for the first time since gross lending hit 23 6 billion in July 2008 In a separate report the CML estimates that gross mortgage lending was 21 8 billion in October 8 higher than September s lending
