HMO mortgages for UK landlords
HMO properties present a great opportunity for landlords because they commonly offer higher yields than standard buy to lets.
If you buy the property at the right price, the rental income from multiple rooms renders the total income higher and therefore more profitable.

What qualifies as an HMO property?
An HMO is a let property where three or more tenants from more than one household share facilities such as a bathroom or kitchen.
We can also source HMO mortgages for multi-unit properties. These are classified as anything from a semi-detached house split into two self-contained flats or a new purpose built block of 20 self-contained flats on one freehold title.
If capable of sale, each unit should have a minimum property value of £50K.
