MFB helped our client transition to a portfolio landlord using mixed funds from their LTV and their rental properties to help secure his fourth buy to let mortgage. 

The Client 

A self-employed business owner with three buy to let properties looking to purchase his fourth.

The Property

A three-bedroom semi-detached residential house located in the North West. The property has excellent access to local amenities and fast transport links to surrounding cities.

The Finance

Using a 25% deposit from funds saved in his Trading Limited Company, our client required a 75% LTV mortgage to complete the purchase.

The Challenge

The initial challenges for this case were criteria-based. Firstly, the fact this purchase would qualify our client as a portfolio landlord restricted our choice of buy to let mortgage lenders from the start. 

Secondly, although a completely legitimate deposit source, some lenders are uncomfortable underwriting intercompany loans as it is a more complex structure than the usual director’s loan. 

Despite these complexities, we knew several specialist buy to let lenders would accept the case and collected all the financial documentation we’d need to prove the intercompany loan’s legitimacy, which would help speed up the process.

The Solution

Having identified a competitive mortgage rate with a reliable specialist buy to let lender, we were keen to proceed so our client could secure the purchase. 

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our client’s Trading Limited Company had diminished income, which didn’t quite meet our desired lender’s minimum income requirement. To overcome this, we were able to put a case together that combined income received from our client’s Trading Limited Company and the rental income from his other buy to let properties to meet the lender’s minimum requirement. 

Once we’d submitted all the documentation, the lender was happy to proceed with the application, and our client’s purchase was fully secured.
