    Best Lender for getting the highest possible HMO valuation

    Hi. I have a very specialist HMO that contains 5 en-suite rooms each with a kitchenette (but no fixed cooking facilities) and their own electrical distribution boards. There is a shared common room and a further letting room that has sole use of an en-suite. This room does not contain a kitchenette. This totals 6 rooms. I have a license and a certificate of lawful development for change of use. The property is also in an article 4 area regarding HMO permitted development. Can anyone recommend a lender that will give me the highest valuation and ideally use an 'investment model' valuation, rather than using comparables.

    Lenders providing Investment Valuations are;-
    Paragon Bank
    Foundation Home Loans
    Keystone Property Finance
    Shawbrook Bank


      Thank you very much for this information.

        Equity Release loans do not extend to Buy to Let Mortgages given that such borrowings are deemed Non Regulated by the FCA Whilst Residential Homeowner Loans are Strictly Regulated and why only Brokers with the relevant qualifications are permitted to advise and arrange such facilities with lenders.

        Hi everyone.

        So I have a house with about 90,000 of equity in it, which is about 70% of the value. One option I have is to release the equity as it is rented out and I don't want to selll.

        I am half way through a 2 year fixed term on the mortgage. So if I release equity will...

        If you are part way through an existing fixed term mortgage, you should want till nearer the end of the term before re-mortgaging.

        Equity release is only for those who have no income to pay interest on a normal mortgage loan.The interest rate charged is higher because the lender has...

        Firstly are we discussing obtaining a further advance from the current lender , obtaining a second charge mortgage from a third party provider , I am a little confused; I am also assuming that the present loan is a Non Regulated mortgage as opposed to a Residential Homeowner Mortgage but where the property...

      • Borrowing against property to invest in shares etc
        by Clulass
        New here, just wondered what people in property thought about borrowing against a BTL property, to invest in shares (either plcs or start ups) - so relatively risky but big growth potential.

        Is it a totally crazy idea, or perhaps not, if you can afford the interest payments, and you accept...

        Depends on circumstances, I guess. I was talking to brokers about extracting equity from my property for investment and I was being told no because it would be viewed as a good money-laundering strategy (i.e. buy for cash -> remortgage) and therefore they would be on the wrong side of AML rules....

        Can I make a slight correction Gordon to your last post and without wishing to sound clever;you are indeed correct regarding the possibility of the lender not allowing any flats to be extracted from the title but the possible exception is if the value of the Freehold plus the value of the remaining...

        I have 5 self-contained bedsits and 1 x 1 bedroom self-contained flat all contained within a single HMO property. There is a shared kitchen and lounge and I have a HMO license and certificate of lawful development (change of use C3 to C4). My strategy is to wait 3 more years and get retrospective planning...
