    Good point Gordon999, furthermore the Law Society in Best Practice and endorsed by the FCA is for a broker to provide names of three firms but with no bias on one , it is then unto the client to source quotes and make the decision themselves. House Builders are very adept at convincing purchasers of the benefits of using one firm who has acted on the majority of such properties and can expedite the conveyance process. In such instances run like blazes.

        loanarranger,

        I was thinking the Law Society requires the solicitor to act for the client ( the property buyer ) but if the solicitor turns out to let ground rents doubling up after every 10 years in the lease go unchallenged because they are paid by the developer, the situation becomes an offence under the Fraud Act 2006.

          RedRanger apparently already has 125k in cash savings to use as deposits on 5 properties but didn’t answer a question I asked a while ago about how much each property would cost. I assume they will be very cheap properties if 125k is going to cover 5 deposits and associated buying costs. OP might...

          Hi,

          Could someone help with a couple of newbie questions in regards to interest only BTL mortgages;

          1) To achieve the most competitive rate throughout your mortgage term (e.g. 25 years) do you just keeping on remortgaging after each initial term is over? On a side note assuming...

          In my opinion, it would be a good idea to ask these questions to a Mortgage Broker. They will provide answers, and also raise some points you probably hadn't thought of.

          I used to be a Mortgage Adviser myself, and I have found loanarranger to be extremely knowledgeable on this forum -...

          Most of the information you want should be available on google but:-
          1) Normally you would fix the mortgage for a set term i.e 3yrs, 5yrs etc then at the end of that you fix it again with which ever lender is offering the most competitive deal.
          2) If you stay on after the initial 5yr fixed...

          Hi RedRanger
          whilst you might take out a long term mortgage you initially will decide on how long you want to have the first incentive facility, 2/3/5 year fixed, Discount , Tracker, at the end of the incentive period you will have assessed whether to have the loan revert to that lenders variable...

          No I have never had a mortgage. I have been quite fortunate in that respect as I was given my current home by family and live mortgage free hence I know very little about mortgages....
