UK Limited Company Buy-to-Let Mortgages

Until 2015, there were fewer advantages to owning a property in a company as opposed to owning it in your own name. However, changes to the treatment of mortgage interest introduced after the 2015 budget made the Limited Company route far more appealing for any UK Expat or Foreign National looking to invest in Buy-to-Let property.

In the last 7 years over 30,000 UK Limited Companies have been established exclusively for Buy-to-Let purposes, mainly driven by legislation reducing mortgage interest relief for landlords holding property in a personal name. As a top-rate taxpayer, the tax payable via a Limited Company will be lower than the tax on individual income.

Helping You Through the Expat Mortgage Application Process

Most high street lenders lack expat mortgage options and support structures for Expats or Foreign Nationals seeking finance. This is where a specialist UK expat mortgage broker is usually necessary to ensure your application meets the right criteria and is directed to the appropriate lender. Any available mortgage product will depend on your specific circumstances.

Our consultants and dedicated support team will guide you through the entire UK mortgage application process. We'll identify all of the requirements, including income and visa status. We help reduce disruption, contain your costs, and save you time.

We’re here to Save Time and Take Away the Stress

  • We work with the lender to present your case and ensure an underwriter doesn’t make assumptions based on the fact you live and work abroad or have only recently moved to the UK.

  • We can talk you through the process on how best to present your mortgage application.

  • As a completely independent team of expat mortgage specialists – we have no obligations other than ensuring you receive the best and most valuable service from our team.

  • We can help you secure a more favourable rate when exchanging money across borders.

UK Limited Company Mortgages – Frequently Asked Questions

The simple answer is yes. To understand the options available to you, speak with a specialist broker who can help with your UK Limited Company.

As of 6 April 2020 landlords can no longer deduct mortgage interest and other allowable costs from their rental income before calculating their tax liability. It will be restricted to the basic rate of income tax which is currently 20%.

Relief will be given as a reduction in tax liability instead of a reduction to taxable rental income. This means that your taxable income will rise, especially if you’re a higher or additional rate tax payer.

Hence many expats and overseas investors are now looking to UK Limited Companies and purchasing property with a UK Limited Company Mortgage.

Whatever your overall plan is, our mortgage advisers can help you understand the options available to you.

Buying a property to rent out in a limited company requires a UK Limited Company mortgage for which the company registers the correct business activity known as Standard industry Classifications or SIC Codes.

Most lenders require the company to be defined using the following Standard industry Classifications (SICs}:
: Buying and selling own real estate
68209: Other letting and operating of owned or leased real estate
68320: Management of real estate on a fee or contract basis

The company also requires a current bank account for the mortgage direct debit. A new SPV Company with no assets or income can be set up within 24 hours and is an ideal vehicle for your BTL mortgage. You can also lend money to the SPV for the deposit from your personal assets.

Mortgage Lenders prefer to lend to Limited companies (sometimes referred to as SPV’S) which only own and rent out a property. Whilst you can obtain BTL Mortgages in a Trading Company, the product options are limited as lenders see other activities as a potential liability.

Applications from Limited companies/ SPV’s tend to be quicker and more straightforward as underwriters find it easier to understand that the company has one sole business income stream. Trading companies can be complex because of the various income streams and as such, there are many more mortgage options available for Limited companies/ SPV’s than for trading companies.

Whatever your overall plan is, our mortgage managers can help you understand the options available to you.

We came back to the UK in July 2022 after almost 20 years abroad and discovered that, as an "expat", borrowing for a new home is very difficult. Liquid Expat made it possible and we have just moved into our new home. They are specialists in the field and we would recommend them to all expats needing a mortgage.

After an initially shakey experience with a staff member who subsequently left Jae came in like a super hero and helped me to get this deal done. I have been having an immense amount of trouble with my own legal representation (!!!!) and Jae has been the guiding light.
