Tactics for landlords investing at 85% LTV

  • Invest in buy-to-let with a small lump sum: the most obvious solution for experienced landlords looking to buy their next property.
  • Raise capital from your existing portfolio: 85% is the maximum loan available from any buy to let lender, these products allow you to leverage the highest amount possible from your existing property portfolio.
  • Split a large amount of capital across multiple properties: an alternative to placing a large amount of capital in one property. The advantage of splitting capital across multiple properties comes from the protection it offers you from an over reliance on one property for rental income, and capital growth.
