Our client was keen to get on the property ladder and purchase an investment property.
Buying a residential property in an area he would like to live in would have been difficult and require a large income stretch.
So, he opted to buy an investment property in a nice area of London. This enabled him to get a better return on his savings and benefit from future house price rises.
Most lenders do not offer first-time buyer buy-to-let mortgages, so we had to approach one of the banks still operating in this market.
We submitted the application to a bank willing to look both salary and rental income generated from the property for affordability purposes. This enabled him to secure a large enough mortgage.
