  1. Hi all. I am wanting to get a mortgage on my unencumbered property (value 750 k) at 60% LTV to release 450 k for investment purposes. I would then like to give a directors loan to my investment company to invest into BTL. I don’t see any issues with the high street lenders allowing me to do get a mortgage BUT will they want to know why ? Surely this is irrelevant as long as I’m able to meet their income and credit rating profile. Thanks in advance
  2. Hi all, Just helping to enquire on behalf of a friend of mine here in Hong Kong. They are in a position where they hold a flat containing subdivided rooms and have a mortgage on the property. These flats have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard last year and they are now considering their options in terms of extracting the equity. Just wondering whether there is the option to remortgage the property without raising too much suspicion and whether anyone can assist with this. From what I understand, the property strictly speaking is not fully compliant to local regulati
  3. Hey all, I'm hoping someone can help me understand a bit more about equity release for the purpose getting a deposit for another home. I have a flat in London that I bought in 2010 on a 35 year mortgage. I have managed to get the remaining mortgage down to around 10 years and in that time the flat has also gone up in value. I want to try and keep the flat on if I can, so want to understand how much equity I could potentially release and under what circumstances that capital could be used by way of a deposit on a new place. For simplicity, say I bought the flat for £200,000 wi
  4. My long term girlfriend and I have been looking for a route onto the housing ladder. My girlfriend’s Dad owns a commercial premises on which he runs a profitable laundrette from. He also owns the freehold to the first floor which has separate access and is currently being run as a 3 bedroom HMO. Long story short, the property is well suited for a loft conversion / extension, next door have already done this a few years ago. My girlfriend’s Dad has agreed to “gift” us ownership of the proposed 2nd self contained flat should we fund the works. The works would comprise a small ground
  5. Hi, I'm looking to release some equity in my home and use this cash as a deposit on my first buy to let mortgage but everything I've seen suggests you need to be over 55. Is this true? if not where do I start? Many Thanks
  6. Hey Fellow Hubbers! So my property in Sheffield is coming up for remortgage now and I am trying to decide whether a 2yr or 5yr is best. This is my first property and the first remortgage, so just interested in what people normally do. I know it depends on your goals, and for me, it’s maximise cashflow and pull out as much equity as possible to reinvest. I do like the idea of knowing what I will pay for the next 5 years but as I am only at the beginning of my property journey feel I need to be a bit more aggressive and recycle my deposit to get that snowballing rolling. So my thought
  7. I have had a property in London for the past 10 years and it has c50% equity in it. Originally bought to live in it then had consent to let while I have been overseas. I am returning to the UK in January and want to build my portfolio. However because the rental yield is quite low I am having trouble releasing equity as a buy to let mortgage. Any advice?
