  • current have buy to let property and thinking of releasing equity to buy another

    hi there, am thinking of releasing equity from my current buy to let property so can buy another abroad. does this mean my buy to let mortgage would go up and payments would be more even if I'm using equity. also would there be any issues with the mortgage company releasing equity as it is a buy to let mortgage? any advice or previous experience on this. thanks

    if you are releasing equity from your house you will be given money therefore you have to pay this back so of course your payments will increase.

    the lender will ask for what purpose you need the money which you will have to tell him and the amount it lends depends on your personal circumstances and what the loan to value will be. A lot of BLT lenders are only lending with a 75% and below LTV so you will need to do your sums.

      Not sure why you think using equity should not make a difference.

      Equity is difference between the perceived asset value and the liabilities (=mortgage in this case).

      Releasing equity = borrowing more money against the property (over and above current mortgage).

      So, yes mortgage would go up. As a result repayments would also go up.

      Depends on the Lender and, as already pointed out, your circumstances. There will be questions to answer of course.

      The additional borrowing, which is what it is, will likely be subject to a different interest rate than what you currently have on the existing mortgage. It will also be limited by the maximum LTV that the Lender will allow.

      The alternative will be to remortgage the property, either with same Lender/different product, or to another Lender where you may be able to get more favourable rate.
      Talk to a good broker.

      • Mice in the flat - what to do?
        JP23
        We have had mice for a while now. There's only one or two that we see (we're not overrun) but still, they've left urine stains in our cupboard and behind the skirting it's ridiculously filthy and soiled.

        Are we legally able to pay for a cleaner then subtract it from our rent next month...

        Great, but you've entirely missed the point I was making.

        If someone walked across my front garden and allowed their dog to take a massive dump I'd have more than reasonable grounds to hold them responsible for cleaning it up.

        But if they refused or claimed that it wasn't down...

        Hi,
        Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?

        Notice to quit is pretty well defined, "surrender" is not, so while that list looks complete, it is in fact not.

        For a tenant to surrender a tenancy, there should be an offer of surrender and the landlord has to accept that offer.

        If s21 notice is served and a tenant...

        Hi

        my Daughter shared a house last year with 4 strangers as she didn't get in to halls. It's been a bit of a nightmare as the 2 lads were very disrespectful with regards to cleanliness, having people over and paying towards bills. She came home a lot and i may came home for the summer as...

        There's only (legally) one tenant in a joint tenancy ("who" is made up of the five occupants all of whom are liable for all of the obligations of the tenant), so yes, the badly maintaining students will be subsidised by the better behaved students.

        The "Lead Tenant"...

        Hi,

        I rent out a modern / purpose built ground floor flat which I've owned for c15 years and lived in it myself up until the last few years when I have rented it out. Never had any issues with damp when I was living there or with past tenants, however, the current tenants have reported...

        Most head leases for flats forbid drying within the grounds but outside the flat, so requiring drying outside the property means an extended dry in the laundrette, so you if you want to impose such a rule, you should probably ban washing machines as well.

        (Where I live, a common breach...

        The Act clearly states what a s.21 notice does, which is nothing apart from allowing the landlord to go to court.



        I have just done so.

        If a s.21 does nothing then the tenant may only end the tenancy by surrender or notice to quit. Both of which are very well documented...

        Sadly all on one joint tenancy. We've learnt the hard way never to do this again! To be fair the lead tenant process was never explained, they just said someone had to be lead tenant!...
