    Mortgage relief and LTD

    As it stands now I will not be effected by the changes to mortgage interest relief being reduced to the basic rate of tax. However if I buy anymore it could effect me if not now when interest rates rise. What I was thinking is leaving the properties I have now registered in my name and then any future ones I purchase place them in a LTD. This would save me from transferring all current properties into a LTD at cost which would not change anything financially .

    Will I be able to get a LTD mortgage. ? Will they be able to take the income from the properties held in my name for the mortgage on a property to be held in a LTD

    Is there anything I should consider with this and does it sound like it makes sense and it would work ?

    Views appreciated.


    Hi Phillip,
    Firstly, are you sure the change will not affect you?
    If you add back the annual cost of your interest and finance to your taxable income last year, do you stay in the same tax bracket?
    Assume I know nothing.


      Yes from a spreadsheet what I have done I stay in the same tax bracket, I uploaded my figures on here and people said it looked correct. I do not have any other income you see. And I am not very heavily geared as half of my properties are purchased cash.

      The only way it will effect me is if I get a normal job and this income gets added. Daft as this was the plan eventually once done with property. Great incentive to get into employment. Well done Tories !!!


        I'm in a similar position.
        I've stopped buying or selling anything to see how this washes out.

        There's a chance that the proposed change will be varied (it's been a surprise to everyone I've shared it with - so it might simply go away).

        There will - I suspect - be some new financial products from lenders, that make things easier for the changes we're looking at.
        Otherwise the impact will also be felt by lenders, as BTL borrowing personally is less appealing than through a company.

        It's something to consider and be aware of, but right now it feels too soon to actually restructure - the picture isn't yet clear.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


          philip cooper,

          You need to apply to a few lenders offering LTD mortgages and ask for " mortgage offer in principle". They usually ask for personal guarantee from the Director who must have other assets to back up the gaurantee. So if you can show yourself having adequate assets , then you will get a LTD mortgage.

            Can't see any reason this would be an insured event. Agree it is not a capital expense at all....

            I rent out a single property, during the winter storms the brickwork was damaged and the cheapest option to repair it was to render the Gable end and rear of the property. I tried to claim on the insurance but they maintained it was due to wear and tear, I am of course disputing this. My question is...

            If you dont mind me suggesting, If your Insurance Company is rejecting your claim you could get in touch with a Chartered Loss Assessor who would argue with the Insurance Company Loss Adjuster, its worth a phone call to one.

            I think the insurance company were right-the render must have been distressed to suffer storm damage. You can offset cost against income.

            Hmrc rules allow transfers between spouses without cgt. The recipient spouse takes on the asset at the original purchase price.

            I'd say that's a maintenance cost and would be allowed against income.
            It would affect the value of the property, but only to restore it to the level that it was at prior to the damage (plus the general positive effect of any large maintenance work).

            Hello. Since 2013 my wife and I own a property as tenants in common where the beneficial interest split is 90% her and 10% me. We are now looking to sell the property. I have a large CGT loss and using the HMRC CGT calculator I have calculated that if I change the split to 70% me and 30% my wife...

            What you are planning to do is routine and HMRC will accept the change as a matter of routine admin.

            We have a small BTL portolio of five properties. Some are in our personal names and the latter ones in a property company we set up a few years' ago when the tax rules changed.

            I'd really like to find someone who can advise us of the best way of either bringing the personal...
