Top three tips
The key to a successful and quick transaction is to work with professionals who are experienced in this field. It is imperative to speak to a suitably experienced mortgage broker who can not only provide you with professional advice – something you may not necessarily get directly – but who also knows and understands the property market.
To make sure you have the best chance of securing any property you make an offer on, we suggest that you obtain a mortgage ‘Agreement in Principle’ (AIP). This will confirm in writing how much a lender will be prepared to lend you, subject to a full mortgage application and underwriting. This AIP can then be used to confirm to the vendor your creditworthiness and that you are a serious buyer.
Preparing for a mortgage, especially for Portfolio Landlords given recent regulatory changes can be a minefield for those unprepared. Landlords need to ensure they have evidenced the correct tax being paid on their investment properties, have a proper portfolio spreadsheet and now provide a business plan and cash flow statement. A good broker will help you get a package together that can be updated and used each time easily and without hassle.
