First Time HMO Mortgages
Start Your Property Portfolio On The Right Financial Footing
If you aren’t a current landlord and haven’t had any previous landlord experience historically, the HMO mortgage market can be tough to break into, you may have already found that many HMO lenders require you to have a certain period of ‘landlord experience’ to qualify to borrow, this can be anything from 6 months to 3 years.
But not having the experience isn’t a complete barrier, we can still source finance for those starting out as a landlord buying HMO property. It’s also very important to note that we do successfully ‘break the rules’, by gaining exceptions from specialist lenders for strong cases where the minimum threshold isn’t reached, but lenders are happy to lend.
