I had a landlord call me this morning
he wants to sell 10 BTL properties
Value he thinks is £950,000 purchase price in 2007 One Million
He owes £850,000 Mortgage Express Term ending in less then two years
Rental Income £54000
Property is owned in joint names wife is on a salary of 45k and he has no job
I think he is in negative equity I would value the property at around £800,000
He is clueless on PRA and knows a little about S24
So where will he go
Can he sell he can at a loss
Can he transfer into his own name and use his allowances
Can he get a Mortgage with PRA lending restrictions
He has little cash because he wants to buy a new home under Help to Buy
He lives in rented accommodation
any thoughts guys and girls
This case highlights the North South divide such a lot
He has had a million pounds of investment property that has lost money since 2007

If the Landlord owns BTL Properties, he wont be able to use Help to Buy (unless they are sold).
If he is in negative equity then he wont be able to remortgage? unless he puts money down to reduce the debt. So same goes for transfering into his own name.
He may be able to discuss with this lender - to sell at a loss but will then owe the lender monies if he is in negative equity unless they are willing to give a haircut.
Id recomend he talk to a financial adviser - as the term ending in two years will mean mortgage express will come knocking asking him to repay the loan in full.So he needs to act now.

I agree with you
How much is left of his rental income after expenses?
I think his casflow should be ok if he is on a tracker
so he should pay down his loans but 2 years is not lot of time

I am an Acquisition Specailist not a Finance Broker so I don't need a FCA number. I have the contacts to professional that can help this landlord as would be the introducer. I have helped many landlords who have been in this position, a vast number of landlords have been sold new builds or have been given bad advised to keep remortgaging, which has put them in this position.
As I said I can help and point the landlord in the right direction, any legal advise would be given by legal professionals
Crazy situation which highlights the difference in prices, in London 1 mill would barely get three quality 2 bedroom BTLs
that's why I get annoyed with the govt
they set policy from the SE when we have two different markets
Landlords in the NE have not raised rents in 10 years
and the Govt Talk about rent control
