Leeds Building Society low rate HMO mortgage great for first time HMO landlords.
If you are looking to maximise rental income from your buy to let investment this Leeds Building Society low rate HMO mortgage product is perfect. HMO or to give them their full title ‘houses in multiple occupation’ allow landlords to let bedrooms individually which can increase rental yields substantially. There is added risk to the lenders in terms of obtaining possession and greater potential for security damage from the tenants so normally the rates and fees are much higher than this gem.

MY PRODUCT COMMENTS: The rate and arrangement fees on this product are way below the market norm for HMO lending. To give you an idea most alternatives are around the 4.5% to 6% interest rate mark with arrangement fees between £3,000 to £5,000.
MY LENDER COMMENTS: Leeds Building Society are aiming this product at novices and new entrants to the HMO market. It is available to first time landlords but is limited to properties with a maximum of 5 bedrooms. It is suited to landlords looking to invest in student populated areas such as universities and hospitals.
