    There are commercial lender options available if you have bought the property below value in a poor condition and have renovated it to enhance the value. They will ask for evidence of works carried out, such as invoices from tradesment etc.

    There are strict criteria PM me if you want more specific information.
    Comments I post are believed to be accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility. As I do not know your individual detailed circumstances my comments are based on general information and/or opinion not professional advice. To receive professional advice on BTL and Commercial Finance you will need to become a client of our firm.


      I have recently set up a property business and aim (after a lot of research (this being some) and a bit more saving) to start on the renovation ladder.

      Could you let me know more details on the criteria of potential mortgage co.'s that will look at re mortgage before 6 months of ownership (after renovation).

      I'd like to have a full understanding before making any moves.

        Recently reading more and more posts on here and coming across quite a few landlords who have made a limited company.
        What made you do this?
        Are there financial benefits?
        Tax benefits?
        Is it something I should look at?

        I suspect the reverse will be true, to be honest.
        I suspect that many (most?) landlords don't have any idea of most of the recent changes in regulations for landlords - the people who contribute to this forum are not representative of landlords in general.

        The awareness of landlords...

        The following article has appeared in one of the Mortgage Trade journals reporting on views expressed by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries an influential trade body within the mortgage industry.

        Thank you both for your constructive responses, it is evident from your views particularly as you are seasoned professionals that a significant number of less well informed investors will possibly take fright at the ramifications of the proposed changes. Although I am an investor as well as a specialist...

        The Minimum Energy Performance of Buildings Bill which is only a start point set the limit at £20,000.
        In discussions, there was a view that that figure might have to be reduced to £10,000.

        That was a private members bill.
        But it was the work of the MP who was murdered and...

        Do you think that cap level is likely? The consequences are quite obvious.

        (On a personal note, this would be a win for me as all my rentals would quite easily get to C and it would drive out the competition. Plus I'd upgrade my F ppr to a bigger F ppr.)...

        The proposed legislation changing the requirement to be C raises the high cost exemption to £10,000.

        A change of that nature would cause me to exit the business.
        I'd either have to sell a property or mortgage one to be able to afford the exemption (or to get some of the properties...

        On a more positive note, there is currently a 'high cost' exemption for F&G properties needing over £3500 improvements. Something similar would very likely apply for D&E's;


        Also worth pointing out that many lenders...
