    Property Query

    Hi All,

    new poster here with a question about purchasing a property.

    I am looking to buy a property that I will let out for the first 1 to 3 years but after that I intend to move in to it for my retirement. Is a buy to let mortgage the way to do this?

    Cheers Soupie

      Getting a straight forward BtL is absolutely no problem as long as you meet the minimum income requirements and the rental is sufficient using the applied Rental stress calculations. At this moment in time such a transaction is deemed as a Non Regulated Mortgage and falls outside the scope of the FCA; Onceyou elect to move into the property, the dynamics change where the lender will determine your ability to fund the mortgage using your primary income from PAYE or Self Employment and taking full account of normal day to day expenditure and the liabilities attached to Credit Card/ Bank Loans and PCP payments, Furthermore the loan term could be reduced if you do not have a suitable level of income from Private Pensions ( State Benefits are excluded) and depending on the lender Interest Only payments are only permitted in the LtV is relatively low otherwise the loan would be required to be paid on a Capital & Interest Basis.
      As DPT suggest consult a good broker who will advise on which are the most approachable lenders for applications such as you are seeking.

          Good evening,

          I would be interested if anyone had any views on mortgage early repayment charges. Unfortunately my circumstances have changed significantly over the last 8 months and I am in a situation where I am forced to sell my buy to let property, mainly due to a change in my financial...

          If you accept you freely entered into a business contract where the terms were explicitly stated and you were aware of those terms, then why now say it is "daylight robbery" to be held to those terms?...

          From long bitter experience, I'd never use bucket shop conveyancers for a purchase.

          Re mortgage cost me £400 from a real solicitor. For the sake of £100, I'd pay the extra, not just for the better service but also to build my business relationship. Just asked my solicitor a totally unrelated...

          Much depends on the firm being used by the lender. By and large these firms are “ Conveyancing Factories” and you would be a case number with no guarantee of always speaking with the same case administrator. Much depends on how urgent you are seeking the Remortgage , I would suggest you get a quote...

          Lloyds advertise a "designated client account" which is more appropriate than their treasurer's account. There should be no transaction charges,...
