How our client leveraged their Buy to Let portfolio to free up capital for home renovations

Tuesday July 23, 2019

It’s been almost two years since the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) introduced changes in regulations for buy to let landlords. Since that time, our team of expert advisers has helped countless landlords negotiate bespoke lending solutions to fit their individual requirements.

Many landlords chose to move their property investments into a Limited Company, which has some tax benefits. However, it can make it more complex to leverage individual properties within the portfolio.

Case profile

One of our recent clients faced this exact challenge when looking to leverage their portfolio to raise cash for improvements to their primary home. They were paying a high rate of interest to their existing private bank and struggled to find a lender happy to lend further due to our client’s age and minimal personal income.


Our Senior Mortgage Associate Nigel Bedford’s knowledge of this space meant that we were able to find a lender willing to work within our client’s parameters. They would lend to a Limited Company and allow capital raising with no age restrictions or minimum personal income requirements. The lender was also content with the security of our client’s prime central London property as an assurance on the lending package.

If you are looking to leverage your buy to let portfolio, talk to the experts who understand this complex space. We have the skills and experience to ensure you’re getting the best rate with a lending solution to fit your individual requirements. We look forward to hearing from you.
