Consolidating debt and capital raising on secured loans on buy to let properties
Secured loans can be an effective way of consolidating personal debt; and when secured on buy to lets they could drive down your property income tax bill in the process by offsetting the increased mortgage balance against your rental profit.
Unlike first charge lending the tolerance to adverse credit and short length of self-employment is normally greater.
The reasons for the consolidation can include the personal loans, credit cards, store cards, bridging finance, business purposes, mortgage arrears, repayment of HMRC tax bills and bankruptcy annulment.
So what’s the downside? Well the rates are likely to be at least 7.5% so you need to be receiving a good rental or disposable income.
The lenders will look to a minimum of 25% equity in the property.
Unlike first charge mortgage lenders there is not a 6 month ownership rule before money can be raised, and unencumbered properties (i.e. no current mortgage) are welcomed.
The lenders that we use at Niche are also more receptive to problematic property types such as flying freeholds, flats over restaurants, high rise flats and deck access.
So if you have a buy to let which has a good rental income and equity, and you need to raise money by way of a secured loan please give us a try.
