Landbay launches new HMO mortgages for first-time landlords

Landbay has announced the launch of two new buy-to-let (BTL) mortgage products for first-time landlords who want to invest in houses in multiple occupation (HMO).

The new products are available for HMOs with up to six bedrooms and include new build property.

Most lenders require HMO borrowers to have some experience as a landlord before lending on this type of property, however Landbay responded to feedback from brokers which revealed more enquiries are coming from well informed first-time landlords attracted by the higher yields that HMOs can bring.

Landbay’s two-year fixed rate is set at 3.49% and the five-year fix is at 3.79%, with both products up to 70% LTV and a 1.5% fee.

“Landlords are becoming more sophisticated and they understand the responsibilities of managing an HMO,” commented Landbay managing director, intermediaries, Paul Brett. “They have done their homework and know the yields on HMOs are much higher than single flats or houses resulting in greater financial rewards.”

“There is also more demand for living in HMOs, particularly from young professionals who want or need to share a house. Some simply can’t afford to rent their own place but many actually like communal living. Much of the HMO accommodation is far better quality than it used to be and can demand a higher rent.”
