Each application is treated on case by case basis.

    • Interest Only Option available
    • Usually available in personal name only
    • The mortgage is regulated by the FCA

    What you need to know...

    I want to buy a property for my parents to live in? How can I do this?

    Providing you have 25% plus the stamp duty costs it should be possible to arrange a regulated BTL for your parents to live in. Your chances will be enhanced if you yourself have a good income and a low mortgage or if you will be charging them market rent.

    Can I later change to a normal BTL?

    Yes – the same lender may change it but this could involve fees and early repayment charges.

    Should I get my parents to sign a tenancy agreement?

    Yes – its best to keep things legal. You should also have a Gas Safety & Electrical Safety Certificate and place any deposit in a deposit scheme and ensure you have landlords building insurance.

    "Award winning mortgage advisors & I can see why"

    Bob stepped in at very notice to assist us when we were in danger of missing out on our perfect home. We were impressed with advice we'd seen Bob provide on a forum, which was clear and sensible. It was later we found out that Chess are award winning mortgage advisors and I can see why.

    "Chess was by far the best decision we made in looking for a mortgage"

    I can't thank Jaz and Bob enough for their efforts in helping my wife and I in secure a mortgage. The process was effortless and they took weight off our shoulders. Having gone through getting a mortgage a number of times, I can safely say using Chess was by far the best decision we made. I will be using them again.
