The figures show that 1 in 4 potential property investors considering investing in property to boost their retirement income don’t know how to apply for a buy-to-let mortgage to get started on their property investment journey.

The research, conducted by specialist mortgage lender Kensington, also found that 54% of people approaching retirement age would consider investing in property using buy-to-let mortgages in order to help increase their income in retirement, but many didn’t know what they needed to do or what evidence to provide in order to apply for the correct type of mortgage.

UK Property Investment Increases 8% In A Year

UK Property Investments Rise By 8% During 2014

UK property investment is booming again, thanks in part to the Government changes to the way pensions are controlled. The changes allow interested property investors to release pension funds for property purchases early, because bricks and mortar continue to offer a greater return than pension funds currently provide.

Property investment in the UK is becoming even more popular with the number of property investors increasing by 8% during the past year, according to data recently released by letting agent, Ludlow Thompson, with landlord numbers rising to approximately 1.63 million controlling approximately 3.1 million private rental sector (PRS) properties in the UK.

Bank Of Scotland Accused Of Mortgage Fraud

Bank Of Scotland Accused Of Mortgage Fraud

Northern Ireland Attorney General Accuses Bank Of Scotland Of Committing Mortgage Fraud

John Larkin QC, Northern Ireland’s Attorney General, has accused the Bank of Scotland of committing mortgage fraud in relation to the way that the bank has treated customers who fell behind on their residential property mortgages.

An earlier court hearing had previously ruled that the Bank of Scotland had unfairly re-billed some of their own customers who had fallen into arrears with their mortgage payments.

The Bank of Scotland had decided to appeal the verdict of the earlier court hearing but decided to drop that appeal on Monday morning. The Bank of Scotland then rejected Mr Larkin’s claims, saying it strongly takes issue with the allegations.

A barrister for the bank, Stephen Shaw QC, said Mr Larkin’s view of mortgage fraud was “based on a misapprehension”.

Is The Mortgage Market Review Slowing The UK Property Market?

Is The Mortgage Market Review Slowing The UK Property Market?

Is The Mortgage Market Review Slowing The UK Property Market?

The number of new mortgages being approved by lenders dropped to an 11 month low in May 2014 as the new affordability rules brought in by the Mortgage Market Review (MMR) caused borrowers to be put off and delayed hundreds of existing mortgage applications.

The Mortgage Market Review brought in on the 26th April 2014 requires all UK based mortgage lenders to carry out rigorous affordability checks on the financial status of borrowers.

These stringent affordability checks include stress tests designed to determine if a borrower could continue to repay their loan if interest rates rise significantly.

UKAR Chief Executive Warns That Over 20,000 Customers Could Face Mortgage Arrears If Interest Rates Rise This YearUKAR Chief Executive Warns That Over 20,000 Customers Could Face Mortgage Arrears If Interest Rates Rise This Year

The chief executive of UK Asset Resolution (UKAR), who are winding down the loans of Northern Rock and Bradford & Bingley, affectionately known as “Britain’s Bad Banks”, has warned that thousands of its customers could be pushed back into arrears if there is a rise in Bank of England (BoE) interest rates.

UK Asset Resolution (UKAR), seventh-biggest mortgage lender said last week that they had repaid £6.2 Billion (GBP) to the UK Government in the 15 months to the end of March 2014, meaning it had so far paid back £10.4 Billion (GBP) of the £48.7 Billion (GBP) it owed.

However, if there is a rate rise it could potentially make it harder for taxpayers to get their money back after bailing out the bad banks.

Demand For High Risk Mortgages Reaches New High

Demand For High Risk Mortgages Reaches New High

More property buyers with small deposits are taking out high risk loans worth over 3.5 times their take home income

The number of residential property buyers who can only raise a small deposit of less than 10%, and who don’t qualify for the Government’s Help To Buy scheme, are taking out high risk loans worth over 3.5 times their take home income, has risen to its highest level for over five years.

New figures published by the Bank of England (BoE) show that the number of high risk mortgages being taken out by property investors and existing landlords has increased in the first three months of 2014.

Mortgage lending to new borrowers who had less than a 10% deposit and a Loan-To-Income (LTI) multiple of more than 3.5 times a single person income, or 2.75 times for joint income borrowers, has increased to 2.6%, the highest recorded figure since the last quarter of 2008.

UK Rental Prices Have Not Grown As Much As The Media Hype Suggests

UK Rental Prices Have Not Grown As Much As The Media Hype Suggests

UK Rental Price Growth Has Slowed Down
Everywhere Except London

The hype suggesting spiralling rental prices in the UK’s private rental sector (PRS) are out of control, has been previously used by tenants and even some agents to brow beat private sector landlords into lowering the expected monthly rental prices has been exposed as a myth by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Apart from the ridiculous rental situation in London, where rental prices for single dwellings are getting beyond affordable, landlords across the rest of the UK are lucky if property rental prices just about keep pace with inflation.

Private rental sector rental prices are flat in monetary terms when viewed year on year even if there has been some seasonal adjustment for the Spring & Summer lettings market.

Buy To Let Investment Beating Pension Investments

Buy To Let Investment Beating Pension Investments

Buy To Let More Popular Than Traditional Pension Saving

There has been a lot of editorial commentary in the media focusing on the surge in UK Buy To Let property investment over recent weeks.

There are numerous reports that the total value of properties owned by 2.5 Million buy-to-let investors is fast approaching the total amassed in workers’ pension schemes built up over decades of employment.

The Telegraph reckons that a total of £1.25 Trillion (GBP) has been invested in buy to let property and this figure is still increasing compared to £1.6 Trillion (GBP) that has been invested in pensions.

Changes to pension legislation announced by Chancellor George Osborne in the Spring 2014 budget, could see more money taken out of pensions and put into the UK’s Buy To Let (BTL) market.
