Icon Buy to Let Mortgages Bonus Chapter 11

Mortgage Portfolio Property List

As your property portfolio grows, it will be very important to keep records on exactly the details of your properties and finance arrangements. This will be required by the lenders in order for you to get additional finance for future investments. Keeping a spreadsheet up to date that has all the information that they will require makes the process easier and faster, so you won’t end up missing that deal due to delays in administration required for financing your purchases.

Interest-cover ‘Stress Test’

This is a topic of much focus recently and, in some cases, is reducing how much individuals can lend. This is due to recent changes to the taxation system for buy-to-let, where high rate taxpayers are to be effectively taxed on part of their rental income (and not simply profit like any other business would be). In response to this, most lenders have increased their requirements for stress testing, which measures how much rent you will need to cover the interest payments.

Mortgage Payment Calculator

The book shows you how to calculate interest-only payments easily (see Chapter 5), but mortgage calculators can do it for you as well.

For calculation of monthly payment amounts on repayment mortgages, you are definitely best advised to either have a qualified advisor give you this information or use an on-line internet calculator to estimate this figure. Alternatively, there are tables available that you can use to estimate this and which take into account the term of the loan as well as the interest rate.

Monthly Mortgage Cost Comparison Spreadsheet

To specifically compare one introductory period with another, it is important to calculate the monthly mortgage interest payments, as explained HOW in the best-selling book. These might be given to you, but for interest-only mortgages  the calculation of monthly payments is quite straightforward. If we are using Repayment Mortgages, remember it is just the interest that is of concern to us, not the full monthly mortgage payment amount as far as the cost of the finance goes.

Property SOLD Prices Tool

This excellent tool has been around a long time and I have used it all that time (over a decade), it gives quick listings of previous property prices in an area and you should find the property you are interested in on the listing as well as getting a feel for the prices of the neighbouring properties. It gives a small description of the property type, so you can compare like with like (or should I say similar with similar!).

True APRC Estimator

This subject is covered in the Accelerator Module.

Using this calculator you can compare the estimated true APRC of various mortgages with different offer periods and mortgage terms. Although as you are likely to remortgage again in future, you will need to estimate when that will be and that could vary for each mortgage you compare. Of course, a strong influence on this will be the end of the initial offer period.

Examples of how to use it are given in the download on the Example sheets. Use this in conjunction with the APRC discussion section of the Accelerator Module.
