Leverage your equity

strategic planning Mar 22, 2018

Most people who embark on property investment are not cash rich.  Usually they have successful careers or may have run a business and have built up substantial equity in their own home, but don’t have massive savings.

To get started in property newbie investors often decide to release some of the equity in their own property to put down deposits on others.  Property values are...

How to get your money back

ninja learning Mar 13, 2018

If you’ve been in property a while you’ll remember the balmy days of 100% mortgages and 24 hour remortgages.  Things are tougher today and property investors need to be innovative to continue to invest in property and not end up with your capital trapped in bricks and mortar.

Many investors now think the only way to invest in property is to have saved up a substantial wad of...

I'm not a homeowner, but looking to purchase - either residential, BTL or to buy a derelict property and flip.

bridging finance Jan 30, 2018

Most property investors grow their portfolio by:

  • Searching for suitable rental properties
  • Putting down a 25% deposit
  • Getting a mortgage
  • Maybe refurbishing

The times they are a-changing

The underwriting standards for buy-to-let lenders now mean much more rigorous background checks for potential borrowers – particularly ‘portfolio landlords’.  The rules state:

“A landlord will be considered to be a Portfolio landlord where they have four or more mortgaged buy to let properties across all lenders in aggregate” 

In reality this will depend...
