Case Study – Optimising Investment Strategies for BTL Purchases with Advantage FS

Identifying Missed Opportunities:

A client approached Advantage FS after consulting with three other mortgage brokers regarding a Buy-to-Let (BTL) property purchase. The client, with a £70k annual income, no outstanding debts, and an existing £90k mortgage on a £300k property, was aiming for a 15% deposit on the new BTL investment.


Advantage FS Unveils Strategic Options:

While exploring the client’s financial situation, the Advantage FS team identified two key missed opportunities:

  • Leveraging equity in other properties: While the other brokers hadn’t considered this option, Advantage FS proposed a small top-up mortgage of £30k from the client’s existing lender on another equity rich property the client already owned. This would increase the deposit to 25%, potentially unlocking better interest rates and loan terms. This risk-based approach required careful analysis but could offer significant advantages, such as higher choice of lender and lower rates.

Exploring Limited Company Structure: Advantage FS also suggested investigating the forming a Limited Company (LTD) for the BTL purchase. Whilst this would present higher interest rates to be payable, the potential tax benefits of a LTD company BTL, could more than outweigh this. Either way, the limited company mortgage rates with a 25% deposit would still be better than a personal buy to let mortgage with a 15% deposit.

The Advantage FS Difference:

This case study demonstrates the value of a thorough and strategic approach to BTL financing. Advantage FS doesn’t just act on your initial request and process applications – they identify missed opportunities and explore various avenues to optimise the client’s investment strategies.

Moral of the Story:
