    Mortgage for House split in to 3 flats - HELP

    Hi,

    I am looking at purchasing the above type of property and the interest rate I have been given by my mortgage advisor is 3.8% for a 5 year fixed.

    Are these special mortgages....if I purchase a BTL single house or flat the rates are 2.2-2.9%.

    The advisor tells me these are know as Multi Unit mortgages and have higher rates!

    This is my first time in to multi-unit properties and I was not expecting higher rates!?

    Help and advice much appreciated.

    Talk to other brokers specialising in BTL properties.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      MUFB is on par with HMO’s , not every lender in the BtL sector accommodates such applications-so the rate as quoted is reasonably competitive. Suggest you ask your broker to provide a spreadsheet of his research thereby justifying this particular loan. If your borrowing is below 75% lower rates might be available.

        What is the reason for wanting to buy a "multi-unit property" compared to buying a "single house" ?

        The 5 year fixed mortgage interest rate for single house is available below 2% from some lenders . If you are chasing for higher income, I think a mortgage loan fixed for 5 years at 3.8% interest rate is not helpful and indicates it is not a good investment , but I could be wrong .

        A good investment in property is about buying in the right location . Some wise guy has claimed the criteria for success property investment is "Location, Location, Location".

        Is the "multi-unit property" in the right location ?

          In order of importance when buying ..
          capital growth
          Good deal
          Income vs cost

            The area is very good
            The yield is great
            The property fits my portfolio need

            Yes the rates for financing are greater but it makes business sense.

              May I suggest that you get your broker to reveal his research on products available , of equal importance is will the lender require an investment valuation or a straightforward Bricks & Mortar valuation , itis the former which you should have.
              There are lower rates for a MUFB as lower as mid 3% Mark with a 2% completion fee or slightly higher but at No Completion Fee and below what your broker is quoting.
              I’m sure this isn’t the case but is your broker quoting a Rate because the lender is paying a higher procuration fee ,I am sure he/ she isn’t doing such a dastardly action but always good to check why this rate is being cited.
