If you are investing in property you will want to do this through a Limited (Ltd) company.

However, there are limited companies and there are SMART limited companies for your property investments.

In this video (please click below), Mark Alexander of Property118 and I discuss smart limited company structures for your property business.

Does a smart company structure make it more difficult for me to get mortgage financing or is likely to lead to a higher rate being charged on any financing (given the additional KYC burden, perhaps even on each shareholder)? It makes sense but if i want to grow the business i also want to keep financing costs as low as possible.

Or is the idea you keep the share ownership for the others below 5% so that the finance provider can essentially ignore them and just focus on you?

Also, just to add, does this split of shares make any difference when to lenders when refinancing the property? For example if the property values have increased from £500k to £800k, but you have assigned the capital growth to the discretionary trust. I assume not as the value of the properties the lender is securing against is still £800k (irrespective of whether £300k of that gain belongs to discretionary trust). So can i assume this share structure does not make any difference when refinancing and does not introduce additional complications (e.g. additional KYC/signature of the discretionary trust)?
