    Possible to buy second property?

    I have one flat let out value 220k mortgage 128k equity 92k. Rent 9k a year.
    want to know if its possible to buy a second.
    Last year i arranged the current btl mortgage based on my income of 30k iwas able to borrow up to approx 140k but settled on 128kfor alower rate.
    This is with natwest. I rang them again and things have changed they will only lend 101k for another purchase.
    I dont have any other properties.
    My income is still approx 30k.
    I have 20k in the bank and 73k owed to me coming back at 1.5k a month. Although i could possibly get 30k back soon which would increase my deposit to 50k.
    is there a way to get another btl mortgage through a different bank or broker?

    Hi Propertygoesup
    Funding a second purchase is definitely on subject to the type of property being acquired and meeting criteria, the rental being sufficient and having a minimum of 20% and ideally 25% deposit immediately available. The fact that your primary income is £30000 allows full access to competitive rates within the BtL market rather than being restricted to lenders who have no minimum income requirement.


      Hi loanarranger
      It appears NatWest no longer lend what I require, and they were one of the only banks who would consider me based on the fact I don't own my own residence. There was only a handful of lenders who didn't require your own residence. Are you aware which other banks allow this?


        To start off , you can request your broker to approach TMW or Foundation Home Loans or Precise Mortgages, there are others but these should help you get going , unfortunately like so many lenders today , they are Intermdiary driven rather than direct to the public.


          NatWest will lend me 103,000 on my current 29000 salary. if I was to go crazy on overtime and bring my last 3 months salary to 35000 they would lend closer to 150,000. Do you know if this is similar story with all the banks loanarranger?
          To have a chance of buying a second property I need at least the 150,000.
          Is it better to go for another buy to let (like I already have) or buy the second property as a residential live-in property?
          It seems either way it depends on my income.
          Or maybe now isn't the time due to possible interest rate rises.
          My only other option is Let-to-Rent, where I leave my existing BTL as it is, and rent somewhere for myself around the same price my BTL is let for?
          Appreciate your views!


            Let’s be specific, are you wanting to buy a second property for a Buy to Let investment or for owner occupation.?
            If you are wanting to buy for investment , what is the anticipated rental income ? What type of property are you hoping to buy?

            Should you be buying for your own occupation , the loan is determined by your net disposable income taking full account of your key monthly items of expenditure including the monthly payments of credit cards and any unsecured loans; the net amount is multiplied on average by 4.5 / 5 to establish the maximum borrowings. It is seldom that rental profits are taken into the affordability matrix if the property is subject to a mortgage.
            Given that interest rates are highly probable to be increased next months, some lenders have either withdrawn competitive rates or increased rates, Nat West did this twice in the last week.

            i can only give advice if you are more forthcoming on the facts.

              quite a basic question, but if I have 110k and my property is worth 220k I have 50% equity.
              If I remortgage for 165k and use the 55k as a 25% deposit on a buy to let, what are the pros and cons of doing so?...

              Never in history has interest rates been so low for so long, allowing investment in property, which inevitably has risen significantly. If you are right that wages will go up, then that also means inflation, which will bring interest rate rises on top of the interest rate rises that is already needed....

              Any cash buyer is going to bid to buy with a significant discount, much depends on your resolve or eagerness to sell. If the rental is below market levels then this should be addressed if you decide to keep the property.

              Not disclosing the rental is indeed a significant handicap as clearly...

              As a single man of 36 should my first priority be buying my own house to live in?
              Is the flat I own holding me back? I've had an offer of 15K below the asking price from a cash investor.Wants to pay £210k cash and rent it out for £9k a year but I guess he will increase the rent.

              I am looking to for a lender that would lend on a property that is a HMO and also the beneficial owner lives in the property.

              Does anyone have any experience of this circumstance or indeed know any lender, or even advise on the class of loan that this could fall under?...

              I regret to advise that there is no such facility within main stream lending. You are expecting an hybrid facility that embraces buying a property where the owner is going to remain in situ, the person and others are in fact members of the family which make the BtL Property a regulated loan and to wrap...

              Thanks for the response.

              The owner has other BTL properties and has owned and managed non-MultiLet for more than 10 years.

              In the case mentioned above, the occupier is a family member of the legal owner (who has BTL experience 10+ years).

              I regret to say that this is a proposition you should forget. There are two absolute No No’s in a Lenders vocabulary/ Mortgage application.
              1) Will the vendor remain in the Property , if yes Go Away
              2) If you are buying Property which has been sourced directly or indirectly by a Property...
