    Lot of good info there

    I like the Tax advice bit about structures I think lenders are right to be worried further down the line with schemes  that are being sold to Landlords

    I still firmly believe the way is sell your property to your company, pay all the costs, and sleep well at night

    It may be more expensive but the reward will be HMRC will leave you alone if they do start challenging in the future

    Would you have to sell your property to your company when you buy your first BTL or when you reach 4/5 BTLs? Thanks

    There is no rules on this, just make sure you speak to an accountant to make sure you fully weigh up the cost implications/benefits before proceeding.

    I have only sold property to my company because of S24

    and because I am getting older and I am looking for succession planning and Pension planning

    It will not be for everyone so it needs a lot of thought

    I think thats a very wise approach Smile whilst we can only hope that these people do not come unstuck, this is very much an unknown just now.

    HMRC have every right to challange

    It all sounds so easy to use this sort of thing

    Im not sure its a tried and tested route

    what alarms me is Its and Accountant who is recommending this to there claimants

    If HMRC do challenge it will be the same Accountants making a case to the HMRC

    so Accountants are making money they cant lose but in between is a Client who will worry and be stressed out

    If Lenders are concerned then Borrowers should be too

    I would never want to be a test case

    I don't think these structures are tried and tested, otherwise lenders would be comfortable with them.......  and yes, its the client who carries the risk.

    It makes sense that Landlords are sticking with their lender for transfer products at the end of their terms. So much more hassle involved in a remortgage as a portfolio landlord these days.

    Indeed - its great that the lenders have finally cottoned on to borrower retention.  In the specialist end of the buy to let market, often the numbers work best to move to a new lender owing to what these lenders are offering, so its worth doing some research to check the financials.  But I agree, product transfers are much less hassle!

    Appreciate this is re-iterating known facts and a big deal will be BTL on 15 year terms signed in 2005 ish with lenders such as CHL, MX and NR who will  not extend the term. I would recommend looking at refinance options with active lenders 12 months before expiry as the hoops to go through, questions after questions etc are challenging.
