Solutions by Foundation meeting landlords appetite

Moving into 2024, we noted plenty of encouraging signs emerging from landlords who were demonstrating their ongoing commitment to the buy-to-let sector and looking through a longer-term lens regarding the performance and potential of an array of property investment types.

This was especially apparent amongst portfolio landlords, who are now further extending their grasp of the sector and exploring opportunities in a housing market that is favouring cash-rich buyers, those looking to diversify, and those in a position of strength to use the financial clout of their established portfolios. 

Solutions by Foundation

Solutions by Foundation, is a new proposition driven by rising levels of interest in even more specialist BTL properties, especially in the form of semi-commercial (mixed-use), larger multi-occupation properties, and mortgages for expat landlords.

Arguably the area which accelerated the introduction of the Solutions by Foundation brand was the uplift in the volume of semi-commercial mortgage enquiries experienced over the past 12 to 18 months. This type of solution may once have been seen purely as the domain of a commercial specialist, both from an advice and lender standpoint.

However, for areas with differing degrees of residential elements, more options are emerging from those specialist lenders who have capacity, appetite, expertise and manual underwriting capabilities to complete this type of business. For a property to qualify for a semi-commercial mortgage, the rental income and the valuation of the residential part of the property must be in excess of 60% of the total for the property.

Foundation is the home of specialist lending

Solutions by Foundation offer products and the manual underwriting needed for these sorts of complex deals. By catering for increasingly complex property types – and non-vanilla BTL borrowers –they continue to demonstrate commitment to landlord’s ongoing quest for higher yields and successful growth.

Their impressive portfolio includes a residential arm alongside ‘Buy to Let by Foundation’ for limited companies, portfolios, holiday and short-term lets; and ‘Solutions by Foundation’ for specialist BTL such as multi-occupancy, semi-commercial property, and Expats.
