The purchase price must be no more than £600,000. Under this scheme, you can borrow 20% of the purchase price interest-free for the first five years as long as you have at least a 5% deposit. If you live in London, you can borrow up to 40% of the purchase price. (Source : helptobuy.gov.uk)

Whether you are looking to expand your current property portfolio, or are thinking of becoming a landlord for the first time, you will need to take out a buy-to-let mortgage rather than a standard residential mortgage. A buy to let mortgage is a special type of mortgage which is designed for people who are looking to buy a property which they intend to rent out to a tenant.
Rates on buy to let mortgages are usually slightly higher than on residential mortgages, and the deposit will normally need to be higher also.
It is not feasible to apply for a residential mortgage on a property which you let out or intend to let out, as if your lender discovers you are doing this, they could either ask you to repay the mortgage immediately, enforce financial penalties, or switch you to a higher rate.
Whether you’re a first-time landlord, an experienced investor or somewhere in-between the two, we are here to help you get more from your property investments. We can help guide you through the criteria to ensure you end up with a competitive mortgage to suit your investment and maximise returns.
If you’re coming to the end of your current mortgage deal, need to re-finance a property or indeed your entire portfolio, we can guide you through the increasingly complex process of re-mortgaging Buy to Let properties. In light of the recent changes to the way Buy To Let properties are taxed it has never been more important to ensure you continue to be on the right mortgage deal.
Rather than sell your home when you are looking to move residence, increasingly many people wish to investigate the option of retaining their existing home. This is often by choice but sometimes through necessity. Let to Buy is the process of re-mortgaging your current main residence onto a mortgage product that allows you to rent the property out to tenants whilst releasing equity in order to purchase your new home. If this is something that you are considering & wish to investigate please get in touch so we can guide you through what can be a complex process.
Please note: Some forms of Buy to Let Mortgages are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority
If you’re self-employed, finding the right mortgage can often be a lot of work, since every lender has different criteria when assessing your application.

Whether you’re a Sole Trader, Director of a Limited Company, Partner of an LLP or have a mixture of income sources, we can do all of the hard work and we specialise in finding suitable products to meet your individual needs accordingly.
If you’re new to contracting or have been a contractor for many years, there are many ‘contractor friendly’ lenders in the market that can offer loan amounts far in excess of what’s achievable via standard lenders that adopt a more conservative approach when assessing income for someone on a fixed term contract.
If you’re on a fixed term contract and want to discuss your options then contact one of our mortgage experts today for advice.
