How do I raise finance?

The question that is asked all the time by property investors is - how do I raise the finance to begin?  If you are starting from the great perspective of having a good chunk of capital or you are able to release equity from a property to work with when you begin to buy property; then that is great. 

It makes the process much easier as it gives you the confidence to know that any offer you make is backed up by funds in the bank and therefore offers you greater bargaining power.  Coupled with the right knowledge and guidance, it also means that you can start your search sooner rather than later and get going on your chosen strategy.

Raising Finance

If you are trying to raise finance, then it would be a good idea to check your credit rating and mortgage status.  Speaking to a mortgage broker who specialises in lending for investment purposes about your ability to raise a mortgage would be a good place to start to see if you’re at least in the running in this sense. 

Regarding raising finance for the deposit or to buy outright, this can be a tricky subject.  There are a number of ways in which you could pull money together and we have listed them below:

  • Credit Card (short term)
  • Borrow money from relatives or very close friends
  • Borrow money (in the form of a loan) from friends or acquaintances
  • Raise Bridging Finance (in a number of different ways)
  • Bank Loan
  • Angel Investor/High Net Worth Individual/Sophisticated Investor
  • Vendor Finance (in certain circumstances)

Landlords grow their buy-to-let portfolio through a seven-day second charge loan

  The directors of an investment company, who own nearly 250 properties, are set to grow their portfolio after Together delivered funding secured against part of their buy-to-let empire – in just seven days. The lender provided a second charge loan over 26 of their rental homes, worth £3.5 million, and owned by the high net worth customers, who run their property portfolio through a limited company structure. The three investors, two who are self-employed directors of the property business, wanted to keep their favourable interest rate on the current first charge buy-to-let mortgages on the portfolio of properties across the North of England, which they bought before the financial crisis of 2008. However, the customers wanted to unlock the equity they had built up over the past decade through a second charge loan, and wanted the deal to complete quickly so they could press ahead with adding to their...

‘Staycation’ boom offering opportunities for holiday let investors

Landlords and property investors are taking notice of a growing trend of the Great British ‘staycation’, with a number of them looking to rent out holiday properties on a short-term basis. On the back of good weather last year – England and Wales had the warmest spring since records began in 1659 – the number of domestic trips increased by an estimated 4.7% to 58.5 million, according to new research, while expenditure is estimated to have risen by 6.2% to £14.1 billion. Fergal McGivney, senior travel analyst at Mintel, which produced the British Lifestyles report, has predicted a “slight reduction in the growth of overseas trips as some consumers opt for staycations” this year, because of the subdued growth in wages and continued Brexit uncertainty. Meanwhile, tourism chiefs at ABTA have reported that the Norfolk Broads, the West Country and the Cotswolds are proving to be popular destinations for domestic...

‘Some say buy-to-let is dead – but my portfolio is built on strong foundations’

It’s been a tough few years for buy-to-let property investors. The latest wave of cuts to tax relief on landlords’ mortgage interest was ushered in this month and reports have been rife that landlords are exiting the buy-to-let sector in their droves. However, many believe the death of buy-to-let has been greatly exaggerated. Article provided by our finance expert - Together Money.  If you need any help with Commerical Funding, Bridging Finance or Development Finance please request more details here.  Analysis by research consultancy BDRC on behalf of specialist buy-to-let mortgage lender Together, revealed profitability remains high, with 86 per cent of landlords surveyed saying they were making money, while the average yield remained stable at 5.9 per cent. “We have seen a raft of changes over the past few years but, what is obvious is that there’s a continuing demand for buy-to-let investors looking to make gains in the long-term,”...

Will your retirement plans withstand Brexit fears?

With the full force of Brexit yet to be felt, those who are saving for retirement need to be wary of the potential impact on their plans. While markets have remained resilient following the initial shock of the Brexit vote, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has cautioned that the impact of the decision to exit the European Union has continued to weigh heavily on the wider economy. “The employment rate has remained around record highs, but the sharp depreciation of sterling following the referendum pushed up consumer price inflation, squeezing household real income and consumption,” it said, having downgraded its growth forecasts for the UK earlier last year. The IMF’s report comes after the Bank of England warned that Brexit was having a “noticeable impact” on the economic outlook and that the UK’s split from the European Union will probably hamper productivity and slow growth. “Brexit-related constraints on investment and...

What Have The Recent Tax Hikes Cost The Average Landlord?

At the beginning of the tax year of 2016-17 then Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne implemented a 3% hike in stamp duty on houses which are not main residences. A tax mainly effecting landlords which has reportedly raked in over £1.4 Billion, more than double what was expected. Couple this taxation with rising mortgage rates as well as new restrictions on the interest tax relief on them, this is bad news for the net profit of those who buy-to-let. Jeff Djevdet, Director of a ‘we buy any house’ company explores what this means for the average landlord. Firstly, let’s take stock of some of the facts and figures that factor in to what this will be costing those who buy-to-let; According to the Office for National Statistics, the cost of the average property sold in 2016 was around £220,000; up around 50% from the low point of the housing price...
