Archive: Buy to Let Landlords increasingly using limited companies

Latest research has found that Buy to Let landlords are increasingly using limited companies in order to purchase a property. This was reported in What Mortgage Magazine in January*.

According to the latest figures, purchases by Buy to Let investors through a limited company in December accounted for 38% of total Buy to Let business. This is an increase of 15% on October’s figures.

What this means for Buy to Let investors
Adam Nanson, Independent Mortgage Broker from Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“Since the Chancellor announced in his Autumn Statement that he was planning to increase Stamp Duty for those purchasing a second home, there has been a great deal of interest in the Buy-to-Let market.

“However, those purchasing thought Limited Companies with more than 15 residential properties are currently exempt from the Stamp Duty increases**. It therefore makes sense that an increased number of investors with a number of properties would choose to purchase in this more tax efficient way.”
