LTV Rise on Buy to Let Mortgages for First-Time Landlords

Posted on Thursday 20th November, 2014

Future pension reforms are expected to trigger more growth in the private residential rental sector.

Of course there are additional factors appearing to push the market skywards but I think it’s fair to say that lenders may be preparing for a spike in interest (despite reports of a market cool down).’’

And there is good news for first-time landlords who have previously been seen as less attractive customers. Lenders are now opening up by offering higher LTV on their products, potentially making it easier for them to qualify for Buy to Let mortgages.

Where newbie landlords had once been expected to raise significant funds to access the market, it seems they may now be able to buy without putting down hefty deposits. This is the kind of deal that only experienced landlords have been able to take advantage of. So opportunities for investment may be about to become more achievable for newcomers.

Recently The Mortgage Works announced an 80% LTV mortgage and other lenders offering similar deals.

Obviously there are other issues to consider such as age, income, whether a landlord is already a home-owner and their credit rating. Plus interest rates are probably going to be higher than normal mortgages.

Indeed the process isn’t straightforward, but this higher LTV trend is a chink of light for people thinking about climbing on to the landlord ladder for the very first time.
