Are Limited Company Buy to Let mortgages suitable for first-time investors?


Depending on your situation, preferences and long-term property investment goals, it could be beneficial to begin your investment journey by setting up a limited company from the outset. As this decision will depend on personal needs and objectives, it is best discussed with a professional mortgage adviser from our team who specialises in this area.


What are the eligibility criteria for Limited Company Buy to Let mortgages?


Each lender will have their own lending criteria for a Limited Company Buy to Let mortgage. You could be expected to put down a greater deposit to secure the mortgage and subjected to more restrictive affordability stress tests compared to standard residential mortgages. This is to protect the lender but also for your financial safety.


How does tax treatment differ for Limited Company Buy to Let investments?


Tax rules applied to Buy to Let investments held under a limited company structure are subject to different rules than if they were held personally. For example, limited companies don’t have to pay Capital Gains Tax when investments are disposed of. The tax rules are extensive and, because of that, we would always advise you to consult with a tax specialist.

Tax treatment varies according to individual circumstances and is subject to change.

Case study

Expanding a portfolio limited company buy-to-let

Client background: We’ve had the privilege of processing a mortgage application for two experienced property investors, specialising in property investment and management. Their goal was to expand their property portfolio by arranging multiple limited company buy-to-let (BTL) purchases and remortgages.  

As portfolio landlords with multiple properties, they faced unique challenges in managing their investment portfolio.

The Challenges: 

  1. Multiple limited company buy-to-let (BTL) purchases. 
  2. Complex remortgages for existing properties. 
  3. Extensive portfolio management.

What we did: We began by conducting a comprehensive portfolio assessment, delving deeply into their existing property holdings to gain a profound understanding of their unique investment goals. Drawing upon our specialised knowledge in buy-to-let mortgages, we identified lenders who align with the specific requirements of limited company buy-to-let purchases. Moreover, our services extend to tailoring remortgages for their current properties, strategically structured to release equity that can be channelled into future investments. To further enhance the experience for our clients, we offered solutions for streamlined portfolio management which not only maximises their returns but also ensures full compliance with the ever-evolving landlord regulations.
