Buy to let mortgages available above commercial premises

We’re able to obtain buy-to-let mortgages on flats above a commercial premises including restaurants (up to 75%) and takeaways (up to 60%). These properties can be in positions of very high rental demand but are often overlooked as traditionally difficult to obtain finance on; but herein lies the opportunity as often these properties are sold for a discount compared to equivalent properties nearby that aren’t above a commercial premises. This can result in excellent rental yields so don’t write-off these properties off out-of-hand when they come along, talk to us.”

Europe are going to try and regulate BTL mortgages

  The EU is proposing that in future when you apply for a BTL mortgage, the rent from existing properties cannot be counted toward your income. Europe are going to try and regulate BTL mortgages... if they succeed this would start in 2013 and would mean that Lenders would not take the rental income into consideration when you apply for a BTL mortgage - the same as the European model. It would be based on your income alone. Please look at the website and the link to the e-petition is also below... Please pass this on...
