    Professional advice before re mortgaging 3 properties

    I have 3 remortgages coming up within the next year, 2 in February and one a bit later so rather than just going ahead and remortgaging my usual 5 yr fixed deals I would like to sit down with someone and go through my options and best way ahead.

    I live in Aberdeen but would travel to speak to someone , so my question is does anyone know of such companies/person that do this type of thing.

    I heard prices in Aberdeen have fallen, so will you be in negative equality?

    There are plenty of companies which will offer face to face advise. However, I suggest you phone and find someone you like the sound of.

    5 year fixed deals, may have penalties, if you want to sell up.


      Yes, the prices in Aberdeen have fallen around the 20% mark back in 2016/17 but stabilising now and even a very small increase in some but still nowhere near their original values which were very much over inflated due to the oil industry.

      The 5yr fixed deals suited me at first as it was a long term plan but now not so sure now hence why I’m looking to sit down with someone to discuss my options and best way forward.


        Make enquiry to Nat-West Bank about a portfolio mortgage .


          The suggestion by Gordon999 might seem a good start but if the bank were to offer a portfolio charge then part of the underwriting is likely to be a cross charge against all of the subject properties which would severely limit to options without having to subsequently refinance the entire portfolio with a lender who will take individual charges.

            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...

            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...
