Why Family Lets Are Different
Family lets are covered under the Mortgage Code of Business rules which simply means they are regulated by the Financial Services Authority. As the borrower this offers you extra protection but it does restrict the lenders. Because of this not all buy to let mortgage lenders are prepared to offer family lets. Many competitive deals are still available though.
What Are The Advantages And Uses Of Family Lets?
Buy to let mortgages for family member occupation are becoming more popular both as useful tools in more complex family financial planning and more simply as a means to keep a much loved property within the family in a cost effective structure.
For example a father may wish his daughter to one day take on the old family home but at present she is training as an accountant and cannot take it on. He can’t afford to let her live there for free (often because his lender will not allow him two residential properties due to his income. For this reason he may also be unsuitable as a guarantor). Knowing that his daughter is a successful professional in the making who will prove a reliable tenant he can obtain a family let buy to let mortgage and one day sell the property to her in full.
