Btl Forced Sale

Recommended Posts

Just a bit of mortgage/BTL trivia. I dont think I've ever heard of this one.

I'm dealing with probate where two BTLs are involved. They are both a yielding around +3% after all costs. (base rate trackers).

It turns out that the mortgage cannot be transferred to the beneficiary (not me) but a new mortgage has to be taken out.

Althought the beneficiary has a good income, they already have a mortgage and they won't be able to qualify for a new BTL mortgage with the latest LTV requirements at any sensible rate. (I'd guess LTV required would be 80%).

So the result is a forced sale as far as I can see (good for HPC bears) but on the downside, a good tenant gets thrown out through no fault of their own.

One way around a forced sale seems to be to never complete probate whilst the 1% mortage rate is available. Odd but maybe doable.
