Selling a problem property to a cash buyer. Sun, 05 Jan 2014 10:30

11 scenarios that make a property unmortgageable.

I was on another forum earlier today and came across a post from a novice investor who was talking about how he purchased a property for cash at an auction, using a bridging loan, only to find that the property was unmortgageable and he could not exit the bridging through BTL finance.

This prompted me to write a blog and I thought it might be helpful to share the 11 scenarios I am of aware of which make a property unmortgageable:

1. A derelict property cannot have a mortgage secured on it.

2. A property without a kitchen and bathroom is unmortgageable.

3. Most lenders do not lend on properties valued below £50K, especially buy to let lenders.

4. Most lenders will not lend on a leasehold property with a short lease > typically less than 70 years.

5. Most lenders will not lend on a property with any kind of structural defects or properties close to mining works, areas of landfill, recent flooding, or subsidence.

6. Lenders are very unlikely to lend on a property with sitting tenants/Regulated Tenancies

7. Lenders are unlikely to lend on a property with any kind of defective lease.

8. Properties with damp, dry or wet rot, wall tie or structural problems.

9. Properties where there are boundary disputes or where planning applications have not been applied for correctly.

10. Properties where part of the building is in severe disrepair and needs demolishing.

11. Properties of unusual/non-standard construction.

Hopefully the above covers most of the types of property problems.
