Ex-council and local authority properties can be attractive to property investors, but some buy-to-let mortgage lenders will refuse to finance these purchases.

Perhaps you have encountered one of more of the following barriers:

  • The lender will fund the purchase, but impose a heavy LTV (loan to value) cap;
  • The lender requires that the property has been privately owned for a minimum period (we may be able to help if the property has been privately owned for at least 5 years);
  • The lender imposes a minimum property value (our minimum property value is £40,000 as standard);
  • The lender will outright refuse to fund an ex-council or local authority purchase

Whatever the case, we may be able to help.
