How do I raise finance?

The question that is asked all the time by property investors is - how do I raise the finance to begin?  If you are starting from the great perspective of having a good chunk of capital or you are able to release equity from a property to work with when you begin to buy property; then that is great. 

It makes the process much easier as it gives you the confidence to know that any offer you make is backed up by funds in the bank and therefore offers you greater bargaining power.  Coupled with the right knowledge and guidance, it also means that you can start your search sooner rather than later and get going on your chosen strategy.

Raising Finance

If you are trying to raise finance, then it would be a good idea to check your credit rating and mortgage status.  Speaking to a mortgage broker who specialises in lending for investment purposes about your ability to raise a mortgage would be a good place to start to see if you’re at least in the running in this sense. 

Regarding raising finance for the deposit or to buy outright, this can be a tricky subject.  There are a number of ways in which you could pull money together and we have listed them below:

  • Credit Card (short term)
  • Borrow money from relatives or very close friends
  • Borrow money (in the form of a loan) from friends or acquaintances
  • Raise Bridging Finance (in a number of different ways)
  • Bank Loan
  • Angel Investor/High Net Worth Individual/Sophisticated Investor
  • Vendor Finance (in certain circumstances)

Short term finance can give business a boost

Article by Daniel Owen-Parr, Head of Professional Sector & Auction. It’s now 10 full years since the financial crash of 2008, and one of its lasting legacies has been a tightening of the rules around access to borrowing. Banks who got their fingers burnt have been reticent to offer lending, relying on rigid tick box criteria to help them decide whether applicants qualify. Some, however, are swimming against the tide. Often described by those in the industry as a ‘specialist lender’, Together has been in business for over 40 years, but really thrived over the last decade. Together say no to 'Computer says no' Operating under a banner of what it calls ‘Common sense lending’, they say no to ‘Computer says no’. This approach means they can often lend when others won’t. For instance, they’ll consider most circumstances, including typical ‘red flags’ like self-employment, imperfect credit history, and difficult-to-mortgage properties...

Turning the dream of home ownership into a reality

Parents and grandparents can help children buy their own home without having to hand over money. It’s no surprise so many young people feel their dreams of owning a home are slipping out of reach. A new report by the Resolution Foundation has found that one in three UK millennials will never own a home and half will be renting into their 40s.1 Meanwhile, the latest data shows that house prices have increased by 30% since early 2013, and 54% in London, bringing the average UK house price to £211,792.2 With property prices continuing to soar, many first-time buyers will feel their only option is to turn to the bank of mum and dad – or even granny and grandad – to help them buy their first home. Nowadays, around 60% of under-30s get help from their family to buy a home3, while one in ten grandparents have gifted grandchildren...

Interest Rates rise to 0.75%

The Bank of England has raised the interest rate for only the second time in a decade. The rate has risen by 0.25% to 0.75%. The Monetary policy committee lifts cost of borrowing to highest level since 2009 The move will increase the interest costs of more than three-and-a-half million residential mortgages that have variable or tracker rates. But it will be welcomed by savers, who could see a lift in their interest rates over the coming months.   An extra 0.25% interest will add £12 a month to a £100,000 repayment mortgage and £25 on a £200,000 loan. However, nearly 70% of homebuyers have fixed-rate mortgages, so will be unaffected. I have a variable rate mortgage. How much more will it cost? If you are on a tracker mortgage that matches any rise in the base rate, then an extra 0.25% adds £12 a month to a £100,000 repayment mortgage...

Solving the property puzzle

  The growing proportion of UK wealth tied up in property means your house can easily end up benefiting the Treasury – instead of your children. The recent TV adaptation of E M Forster’s Howards End was simply the latest in a long line of screen dramas whose plot turns on the contents of a Will. It is little wonder dramatists keep returning to the topic; passing on property to the next generation is rarely straightforward. The sharp rise in property prices over the past decade has only served to aggravate matters. For many families, their principal residence is likely to be their biggest single asset, and to attract hefty taxes and other charges each time there is a change in ownership. As a result, retirement downsizing can be expensive, and it can be all the harder to release capital for the next generation. “There can be a sense of frustration...
