    Lending for House Converted into Flats

    Hi All,

    Do anyone have any information about the type of lending available for a Freehold Property (House) that’s been split into self contained flats.

    Eg. Type of deposit required and potential borrowing costs.

    Ask Nat-West Bank and Halifax Bank to give you a quote for mortgage loan .

      With respect to Gordon999 neither lender accepts Multi Unit Freehold buildings under their Buy to Let criteria.
      There are indeed several lenders who will lend normally to a maximum of 75% where the charge is secured on the Freehold Building with no leases having been created on the individual units.

      If however it is your wish to buy a flat within a converted building for your own occupation then the two lenders mentioned by Gordon999 would indeed be prepared to lend up to 95% at normal rates of interest along with a significant number of other lenders . Much however will depend on the unexpired period of the lease with lenders as a general rule requiring a minimum of 50 years unexpired after the conclusion of a mortgage term ( exceptions do exist to this minimum rule)

        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...

        I believe the ERC is a set rate. Some customers will pay the fee that will equate to less than the existing interest balance so will benefit. Other customers nearing the latter part of the deal will pay a charge considerably higher than the remaining interest balance.

        I guess like anything...

        I moved the beneficial ownership rights to my properties into an LLP two years ago in response to section 24; however, my existing broker is unable to obtain a new mortgage for one of the properties as the tax computations associated with my SATRs now have a line for 'income from partnership' instead...

        I agree it allows the borrower a greater degree of control over the legal processes.

        You are indeed correct that Fixed Rate Mortgages do have products which have an ERC on a reducing scale, a feature which is fully detailed in the Key Facts Illustration, unfortunately as in your case the ERC is set at a Fixed percentage throughout the initial incentive period, this in itself might have...

        Most mortgage companies offer a progressive ERC where the fee changes every year which reflects the lenders actual losses. In this case the ECR is fixed for the entire period, and I'm nearing the end of my term.

        The charge they will make is a lot more than the interest for the remaining...
