Complex Buy-to-Let mortgages are usually more flexible than Buy-to-Let mortgages offered by high-street lenders. When a borrower’s application has been declined or their scenario just does not fulfill the criteria of a traditional lender, complex buy-to-lets are ideal.

Landlords can get complicated Buy-to-Let mortgages through intermediaries who can make the process easier for them.
Individuals and limited liability businesses are eligible to apply. This can include first-time landlords, self-employed borrowers, those with bad credit, and expats or foreign nationals, depending on the lender.
Different lenders will have different eligibility requirements. They will usually conduct the following checks on the borrowers:
  • Availability of finances and ability to pay the deposit
  • 2 year SA302 income, credit, and assets
  • Personal and/or business bank statements over the last three months, as required, to verify rental income in remortgage circumstances.
  • Identification is required (certified copy of passport or driving licence)
  • Residency documentation (utility bill or bank statement)
  • a rented copy (AST or commercial lease)
A Buy-to-Let mortgage is a loan secured by a residential property that the borrower plans to rent out. If the client’s circumstances are a little bit more complex or the property has features that put off traditional lenders, brokers may recommend a complex Buy-to-Let mortgage.

A commercial mortgage is required if the borrower intends to utilize the property to run their business or rent it out for commercial purposes.
Although this varies by lender, the following properties are frequently funded using sophisticated Buy-to-Let mortgages:
  • Student residences and serviced apartments
  • Houses with several tenants (HMO)
  • Freehold homes that have been subdivided into multiple units
  • Flats located close or above business establishments such as shops, fast food restaurants, and takeaways.
  • Flats formerly owned by the municipal government
  • Airbnb vacation rental
The rates are depended on the loan amount and term length, this will differ amongst lenders.
The total amount that can be borrowed is solely determined by the rental revenue that can be expected. To determine if a borrower is suitable for a BTL mortgage, all lenders perform a ‘stress test.’

The stress test takes into account the rental income as well as the ability to pay the mortgage interest, or the Interest Cover Ratio (ICR).

For example, a £400,000 mortgage with a 5.5 percent ICR will result in monthly interest payments of £1833.33 (£400,000 x 5.5 percent = £22000 / 12 months = £1,833.33) on a BTL mortgage.

The actual monthly cost would be £2,291.66 with a 125 percent rental income – and this is the lender’s estimated rental value PCM.

Stress testing is increased from 125 percent to 145 percent for higher tax rate taxpayers. The stress test is performed on the overall loan amount, not the purchase price of the home.

Because of the complexities of the BTL market, the ICR must be flexible. For lower rate taxpayers, standard calculations begin at 125 percent at 5%, and for higher rate taxpayers, standard calculations begin at 140 percent at 5%.

As a result, consumers have access to larger loan amounts than they would be able to get from typical high-street lenders. Borrowers can get reduced stress rates when they apply for lengthier fixed rate products with a 5 year or longer term, just like they can with traditional lenders. This starts at 3.60 percent in the specialist market, providing you a lot more borrowing power.
Repayment lengths range from 5 to 30 years.
Some lenders will consider up to 80% loan-to-value (LTV) for a residential complex BTL mortgage and up to 75% LTV for a commercial complex BTL mortgage, although 75% LTV is more common, therefore you should have at least a 25% deposit on hand.

Of course, all of this is contingent on the lender’s requirements, and the higher your LTV, the higher your interest rates will be.
This will differ from one situation to the next, as well as between brokers and lenders. The average turnaround time for a sophisticated BTL at Leodis Financial is 6 to 8 weeks from the time of initial inquiry to a conclusion.
  • Client contacts the broker to discuss financing alternatives for a Buy-to-Let property.
  • Following a fact-finding procedure, the broker determines if a High Street Buy-to-Let mortgage would suffice or if the client’s case will need to be sent to a specialised lender via a Specialist Finance Distributor (SFD)
  • If a broker chooses to recommend a client to an SFD, the broker will inform the client that they have been referred and that they should expect a call from the SFD directly.
  • The SFD underwriter then contacts the customer to determine whether or not the client’s circumstances are suitable for a complex BTL mortgage. If they are, the underwriter draughts indicative terms and sends them to the customer for approval.
  • If the client agrees to proceed with the entire process, they will be supplied all applicable paperwork as well as a list of underwriting requirements; they can then complete the appropriate paperwork, pay any upfront fees, gather the necessary proof, and return it to the SFD.
  • The deal is pre-underwritten by the underwriter to ensure that it is complete for the lender. They then send the application to the lender for a preliminary approval.
  • The lender sends the client an Agreement in Principle (AIP) via the SFD and requests any additional supporting documents.
  • The underwriter will re-evaluate the case and instruct a valuation once the client sends the appropriate documentation to the SFD.
  • The SFD bundles the case and submits it to the lender after the appraisal is obtained.
  • The lender completes a final underwriting and approval of the loan. They next make a formal offer that includes extra paperwork to sign, such as the offer itself, legal charge permission, and proof of building insurance.
  • When the client signs and delivers the final documentation to the SFD, it is forwarded to the lender, who then instructs the solicitors.
  • The monies are released to the borrower once all formalities have been resolved.
These costs will differ depending on the market.
  • Brokerage fee – This varies from broker to broker. Some brokers do not charge a fee and rely on commissions from lenders to close loans. Other brokers might charge a flat fee or a percentage of the loan’s total amount.
  • Fee for submitting an application – Some lenders and brokers demand a fee for submitting an application.
  • Lenders will often commission an independent appraisal to determine an unbiased, correct value of the security. This can also include an estimate of the project’s final value.
  • Arrangement fee – Usually expressed as a percentage of the entire loan amount.
  • Legal Costs – Borrowers will be responsible for legal charges such as employing a solicitor or seeking expert legal advice if necessary.
  • Exit charge – Usually expressed as a percentage of the entire loan amount. Exit charges are not required in some commercial mortgages.
  • Any additional costs charged by either the lender or the broker are referred to as administration fees.

Landlords will no longer be able to deduct any of your mortgage expenses from rental income to reduce your tax bill, you’ll be now receiving a tax credit, based on 20% of your mortgage interest payments.

The new system will potentially increase your tax bill in two ways, if you’re a higher or additional rate taxpayer, you won’t get all the tax back on your mortgage repayments, as the credit only refunds tax at the basic 20% rate, rather than the top rate of tax paid.

Less obviously, you could also be forced into a higher tax bracket because you’ll need to declare the income that was used to pay the mortgage on your tax return. This could push your total income into the higher (£50,000 in 2020-21, the same as in 2019-20) or additional-rate (£150,000) tax brackets, depending on your income from other sources, such as your salary or pension.

Mortgage interest tax relief in 2020, is an example of a landlord that charges £950 per month rental income, with mortgage interest payments of £600 per month. They’ll pay tax on the full £11,400 rental income they earn.
  • They’ll still pay £7,200 in mortgage interest
  • They’ll get a tax credit of £1,440 (£7,200 x 20%)
  • A basic-rate taxpayer will pay £840 – no increase
  • A higher-rate taxpayer will pay £3,120 – double the tax
This change in tax relief only affects private landlords, people who own their properties as individuals (or couples), rather than through a business.

In theory, by setting up a business that owns their rental properties, landlords will be able to continue to declare rental income after deducting the mortgage.

When transferring the property from private to limited company status, you then need to pay an extra round of stamp duty when you transfer ownership of the property to the business.

Finally, if you incorporate your taxes will become more complex. Instead of paying income tax on your rental income, you’ll need to file taxes for your business, and pay corporation tax on your profits.

To receive the rental income, you’ll need to pay yourself a dividend. This will be taxed as income, but at a lower rate than if you’d received the income directly.
