What is Top-Slicing for Buy To Let – Property Investment Loans?
In very basic terms, top-slicing is where the lender uses the borrower’s personal income to top up any shortfall in rent which is needed for the borrower to obtain the loan amount they require.
A number of our panel lenders are now allowing landlords to be able to use surplus portfolio income or earned income to demonstrate that they could meet any financial stresses on their new property application, rather than through the rental income of that property alone.
The Aftersales Network is pleased to advise that it has access to lenders offering buy to let mortgages for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) Houses in Multiple Occupation are subject to licensing and additional regulations.
Accordingly, most buy to let lenders shy away from offering mortgages on HMO’s as they can be much harder to sell in comparison to other residential properties.
Buy to let funding for limited company borrowers can be difficult to find, however, The Aftersales Network has access to lenders offering buy to let mortgages for limited companies
Buy to let funding for offshore limited companies are also available. In the majority of cases offshore investors will normally set up a special purpose property investment limited company (SPV) in which to purchase residential property.
One big advantage of Buy to Let mortgages is that lenders look at future rental income when deciding how much to lend you. Lenders will want to know what your salary is, but it isn’t the most important consideration.
This means that if you’re on a low income, you may be able to borrow more on a Buy to Let mortgage than on a regular residential mortgage.
Most lenders will require monthly rental income (rental cover) to be at least 125% of your monthly mortgage payments
