Welcome to Day 2 of "Landlord Debt Advisory" Week. All this week, Property Tribes is delighted to present a raft of content which focusses on debt issues for landlords and how they can be resolved.The week is being undertaken in association with PT partner, Landlord Debt Advisory, and co-founders Tom Cardwell and Phil Davison will be joining me throughout the week to discuss the leading debt trends and issues facing landlords and the solutions available to resolve them.This is how the week is shaping up:Monday - Launch of week and a discussion about debt trends.Today - Dealing with Mortgage Express when in arrears.Wednesday - Case study: Commercial Landlord Robert Wilson talks about what happened when he experienced financial issues.Thursday - Myths about landlord debt issues busted!Friday - Summary and discussion of landlord debt threats on the horizon.This week could be well timed as recent research has revealed that the number of BTL mortgages in arrears of 2.5 per cent or more of the outstanding balance rose five per cent just in the second quarter of 2019.
Those facing more significant arrears increased 12 per cent in the year to mid-2019. and the number of BTL mortgaged properties taken into possession rose two per cent year on year. For today's instalment, landlord and company co-founder Tom Cardwell joins me to discuss what happens for landlords with Mortgage Express (MX)/UKAR mortgages who go into arrears:

Indeed DL. We will be dealing with landlord debt threats in Friday's instalment ...
My ME mortgage has been 'sold' to Siberite Mortgages. Does anyone have any experience with them?
Hi Lou,As mentioned in the video, they are all brand names of Topaz Finance. Topaz bought the debt and are not actual lenders of new money, just administrating the loans.If you keep up your monthly payments, maintain your property, and do not breach any T & C's, they will treat you just like any other lender would.
Tha Vanessa. I didn't have time to watch. but will do.
Thank you, really helpful Vanessa.
I've still got a number of former MX mortgages now with Rosinica and Jasper some still under water. Not convined these will ever recover and don't want them to undermine the good ones which have taken years of hard work to build up and maintain!
I've still got about 11 years to play with so maybe time to get a plan together?
I feel your pain
I am in a similer boat as you I have 7 ME mortgages with 7 years to go
I am lucky I have made plans to re balance my own Business in around 5 years time
But you and I show how BTL is not a one way street
It doesn't always work in the way we thought it would
The SE Bubble is very different from the rest of the UK
I firmly believe Capital and Repayment should be used in areas out side the SE
Paying down debt is not a bad thing It gains you larger equity and it allows for poor capital performance
All my Company Mortgages are Capital and repayment an some of my own mortgages are too
I just hope new Landlords take notice of what can happen to an investor
This is the very reason why I don't think about capital growth in my BTL world.
Totally agree DL
I have about 9 that I am still worried about but a similar number with former MX that have done well.
On paper the yield is great (8-12%) and would like to get on repayment but as so often with BTL things are not what they seem! The reality of managing these type of properties frustrates with high maintenance costs knocking out any profits.
Trying to build a war chest from the profitable side of my BTL business but would love to pick them off!
I have a war chest which is building up over the next five years and at that point I have two options Pay down to 75% LTV and remortgage
or I could sell to my Company
all my properties are high yeiling thank goodness
This is not the most pleasant situation But It has to be dealt with
I think the key thing is relise the problem Now and solve it futher down the line at least we have some time ???
I believe even SE landlords should heed our story The South too is going to have low growth if any in the coming years
