Types of Products and Choices
The most popular type of mortgage taken on a freehold block of flats is a tracker rate – usually these are offered at more competitive levels at times like this when base rate is very low and offer increased flexibility to the landlord. Landlords do need to consider the impact of interest rate rises on their portfolio costs but with the properties typically yielding 7% and average loan to value at around 60% most landlords have plenty of scope to absorb the projected changes in rates in the medium term.
Naturally as the choice is restricted it is extremely important that landlords fully understand the full range of options available and that all lenders are available to any advisers that are used. The difference in costings between checking prices with a few highs street banks and comparing those offering and all the specialist buy to let and commercial providers can be thousands of pounds per annum.

In this market, therefore blocks of flats are performing well and as such have experienced a spike in demand from landlords. This has pushed yields down slightly in some areas but the type of specialist landlord investing in these kind of properties usually has an eye for a suitable and profitable location.
