Mortgage Trust will now consider remortgaging a property inside 6 months of the date of purchase, but only if there have been significant improvement works carried out which have enhanced the property’s value.
If you have bought an investment property, and can demonstrate a detailed schedule of works, Mortgage Trust will subject to criteria allow you to remortgage within 6 months of purchase.
Up until now it has been standard policy for buy to let lenders not to lend on properties until you have owned them for 6 months unless the funds were for the original purchase. This industry wide criteria has been especially difficult for cash purchasers of auction property and development projects where the ability to refinance the asset to a buy to let mortgage has had to be delayed until after the 6 month period. This policy was brought into force after the credit crunch and down turn of house prices to avoid back to back remortgages and undeclared no money down deals.
