Is it possible to have a combined mortgage for my buy-to-let and own property ?
I think what you may be enquiring about is called 'cross-charging', whereby a lender grants a mortgage on properties based on the combined balance over the combined loan to value, and the short answer is that 'yes' you could do. The downside is that most of the major lenders don't offer this kind of facility and therefore you would be looking at a restricted number of lenders, and rates that would reflect this.
It would be worth looking at the individual figures and seeing whether we can acheive a better result for you, by getting the best deals on the individual properties.
If you'd like to see what we can do to assist you, then please let me know and I'll arrange to put you in touch with one of our consultants.
More than mortgages, talk to me about:
Financial Protection | Investments | Personal and Corporate Pensions | Home Insurance
General Insurance | Valuations | Conveyancing | Wills | Home finders
