unencumbered home to purchase a Buy To Let property
Answered on 21 February 2019 by Nick Morrey
Hi, I own a property worth £1.6m (fully, no morgage on it). I would like to morgage it to raise funds to buy to rent another property for £600-750k. What options do I have? Many thanks, Katie
Without knowing more information around your overall financial position (such as your income, other liabilities, and general credit history) I can't give you a definitive answer, however on the face of it, I can't see why you shouldn't be able to raise a mortgage on your existing home, to purchase a new buy-to-let.
The best thing would be to have an initial discussion with one of our consultants to go through your enquiry in more detail to see exactly what's out there in the market for you.
