    Buying an apartment with 5 year rental income ?

    Add up the five years rent, take that off the asking price, and that will be a fair price for the property.

      Craig30 , Be very careful with such Guarantees , sometimes all that glitters isn't always gold, as JKO has rightly asserted there has to be a pay back for such a Builders incentive.

      Like all new build flats , there will be a significant number of "owners" who could be seeking tenants and what you have to ask yourself is what would the rent be in 5 years time on what by then will be a worn second hand flat and will be competing with other flats both within the block but also in the immediate location: another key factor is what will mortgage rates be in 5 years and is it a viable unit. Given the price one thing is certain there is a ceiling on rentals and the rental stress calculations might prove challenging given that a surveyor will at the outset ignore the Guarantee and work on the market comparables and again when the time comes to refinance.

        I agree with loan arranger.....why on earth would they offer a rental guarantee? If it is a decent flat in a decent location you do not need one - Now lets look at the alternative........Not a decent flat in not a decent area

          Don't buy any lease with ground rent doubling up after every 10 years.

          Its amazing you can buy a new property for £88.5K . Which part of UK is it located ?

                  It was a name which came up whilst looking at the location and price band on Rightmove You must make your own decision with whoever you are negotiating with and whether you accept the terms under which you are agreeing to buy.

                        As indeed would all of the notable Property web sites indicate, It is all down to Research, Research, Location Location.

                          On their web site they are offering 7% net, which is very good. However, you need to figure out you are not paying extra in build costs, in order to get that return. If after 5 years the property reverted to you, what will you get in rent.

                          A family member bought a 5 year guaranteed scheme from a nationwide developer. It was good until they got the property back. The developer had rented it to students. The developer was paying the rent during the summer months. After the 5 years, it was re-let at lower rents, with summer months being empty.

                            My present bank only lends on Libor. I've taken my last 3 mortgage out with them on Libor + 3.25%

                            I want to clear my residential mortgage quicker. Have an interest only BTL that has a £300 surplus each month after the interest is paid. Seems an easy question but then tax relief on the BTL mortgage payments comes into play. The BTL is in the name of a basic rate tax payer.

                            You have £300 per month surplus money and can reduce your mortgage loan by £3600 in one year.

                            On your residential mortgage , you reduce your loan by £3600 and saving £72 interest ( at 2% ) next year

                            On your BTL mortgage , you reduce your loan by £3600 and saving £144...

                            Is this a trick question?

                            Put some figures in and all relevant info.

                            And please don't move the goalposts later on to reveal you are from the planet Zog, with diplomatic immunity and all rent is paid to an oak tree based in the Cayman islands receiving WTC.
