The Client:

There are two applicants. The main applicant has three sources of income. One is employed, one is self-employed and one has property income. The client also has a fair amount of unsecured finance and he doesn’t want it to impact his affordability. He will be paying it off before completion.

The Scenario:

The clients do not own their own residential property. They are living with family, however the gentleman owns 3 buy-to-lets in his personal name and has 27 buy-to-lets in a limited company. They want to purchase a residential. They are not first-time buyers, so this is not an issue, however, we do need to borrow as much as possible.

The gentleman’s employed income is simple – he has a second self-employed source of income, but it’s important to make sure you use a lender that takes 100% incomes from both. The most interesting aspect of this is the buy-to-let income – some lenders will take in to account all the mortgages against a client’s name which will seriously adversely affect affordability. As he also will be consolidating debts before completion from his own sources to maximise the loan amount, but it’s important to use a lender that will discount it from the calculation. Not all lenders do and it impacts significantly the loan amount possible.
