With the high cost of property, particularly in London, raising funds to purchase a buy to let investment is no easy feat.
Homeowners seeking to raise funds often ask us about releasing equity and how they might be able to utilise the value built up in their home, to purchase an additional investment property or find a home that better suits their needs while retaining their current property.
Let to Buy could be the perfect solution
In contrast to a traditional BTL, rather than intentionally purchasing a property for the purpose of letting it out, a Let to Buy mortgage allows you to rent out your existing property and buy a new home for yourself.
If you want to become a landlord or purchase another investment property while buying a new home, Let to Buy can be a fantastic route to take. By retaining your old property and purchasing a new one, you’ll benefit from double the capital increases in those assets, as well as receiving an additional income in the form of rent.
Of course, there are many things to consider before jumping into this process. From personal tax implications, which you’d need to speak to a professional tax adviser about to additional Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) obligations.
