HMO Mortgage – First Time Landlord

The Issue – A first-time landlord with a 7 bed HMO was told by a specialist HMO broker they were not mortgageable due to lack of experience. They had a property worth £400,000 which they wanted to remortgage at 75% LTV after an extensive refurbishment. They were concerned they would have to wait two years before they could release the money they had in the property.

The Solution – We have access to a lender who will do HMO mortgages up to 8 beds for a new landlord at competitive rates. The previous broker thought their maximum was 6, so through our knowledge, we now have a new client and happy landlord who has now moved onto her next property.

Not rocket science but by understanding the market we know where to go and how to ask the right questions.
