    BTL application declined!

    Hi Guys

    I am a full-time Landlord and applied for a BTL mortgage for another purchase.  I was stunned when my broker informed me that the company (a well known BTL lender) declined my application on the basis that the vendor was selling the property through an online estate agent called Springbok.  

    Has anyone had an application declined for this reason?  

    I have to admit that I'd never heard of them before I put an offer in to buy the property.  I don't understand why they would refuse to have any dealings with this estate agent and wonder if anyone can throw some light on this as I'm puzzled.

    I had a similar experience with a lender with a Local Agent not Springbok

    I could not get to the bottom of the issue

    But if memories serves me right it was on the market with two agents

    I did get the property but I had to use my own bank

    I would imagine lenders must have a data base on who they will trust and who they don't

    I think the lender was TMW if that's any help.

    Hi Amber,

    This is not the first time a lender has refused to deal with Springbok.

    You will find your answer here:

    Mortgage refusal - seller is Yellow Springbok

    Yes. They don't like property sourcing companies for many reasons such as undisclosed incentives. Plus distressed sales come with some risk.

    It may not be springbok specifically but properties found via these types of distressed sales companies are frowned upon.

    Hi Adam, what kind of undisclosed incentives are involved and to who would they be paid to? I'm referring to "these type of situations in general" and not to any particular business
