    Poolboy, No you can’t, if you are applying for a residential mortgage , it is on the strict understanding that you live in it and definitely do not let it out to recoup the SDLT, that is fraud by virtue of procuring a mortgage by uttering a false declaration.

  • I agree with Hech123 , there are no limitations on the actual number of HMO's that an investor might own, however much depends on how close to each other are the properties , if for example you were to buy two adjoining properties then the number of lenders who would be prepared to accept reduces but

    I regret to say that you are liable for the premium on SDLT and based on a purchase price of £452000 that would amount to £26160. This is an extortionate amounted Pay but one which for the present is helping fill the tax coffers.

    Whatever he charges will in the long run be cheaper than trying to go it alone.
