Mortgages Buy-to-let Mortgages Making a buy-to-let property work for you is all about getting it at the right price and getting the right mortgage deal. You need expert advice to maximise the yield. The right property could get you a gross annual return of between 5% and 10%. Lenders will ask you for a larger deposit than a home you’ll live in – generally 25%. You’ll need to pay arrangement fees of up to £2,000 and lenders will charge slightly more interest on buy-to-let loans. You’ll also need to show lenders the rent you charge will cover mortgage interest payments by 125% or more. That will help cover maintenance costs or lost rent if the property is empty for a time.

Portfolio Mortgages Building a portfolio of properties to let can leave you with multiple mortgages, multiple accounts to manage, and an increasingly confusing picture as your portfolio grows. Managing multiple mortgages can be time-consuming. Have you considered consolidating all your properties into a portfolio mortgage? That would allow you to make one payment on all your properties every month and don’t have to remortgage every time you add a property, potentially saving you thousands of pounds in fees over the years. There is the potential to grow your portfolio more quickly by drawing down equity from the combined value of all your properties, and there are tax advantages. Talk to us about whether a portfolio mortgage would be right for you or your business. Our impartial experts will find you the best portfolio mortgage deals. We cannot advise you on the suitability of a buy to let investment strategy. If you are unsure as to the appropriateness of this strategy then we would recommend you speak to an accountant or tax adviser.

The financial conduct Authority does not regulate commercial buy to let mortgages. A buy to let mortgage will be secured against your property.

Finance Bridging Finance Bridge the gap with short-term finance There are times when you need to make quick decisions. You may need to make a speedy property purchase or refinancing needs to be done quickly. Maybe you need to ensure you don’t lose your dream home while your property is sold.

How it works Bridging Finance Purchase

Client looking to purchase their new residential property prior to their existing property being sold. Able to secure the full funding for the new purchase over both properties to enable the client to purchase and not miss out. The interest and fees are retained within the facility meaning that there is no monthly commitment and the full loan repaid from the sale of the existing property.

Development

Client looking to raise funds to complete on the purchase of an investment property that is 1) not in a mortgageable condition, or 2) requires planning consent for change of use. Able to secure a bridging loan over either the investment property only or by utilising a 2nd charge over their residential property to assist with the purchase and potentially renovation costs. The client is then able to 1) sell the property at the increased value, or 2) refinance the property based on the increased value once it has been tenanted.

What is it? - Auction Finance Auction finance is used to purchase properties at auction. It can be arranged extremely quickly and fits neatly into the purchasing timescales of the auction houses. There are three types of auction finance. These are:

Short term finance bridging loans

Buy to Let for auction properties

Commercial Auction Properties

Life Insurance In general, a life insurance policy is a protection plan that ensures your financial future is secure for your family if something happens to you. It can help pay off debts, pay children school fess or simply maintain a standard of life for the loved ones left behind. In the event of a death your insurer will pay out a cash lump sum therefore allowing you to live with peace of mind. It can protect your home, business, income and family.

Critical Illness Critical illness is a life-threatening condition, which is generally strictly defined. Most critical illness policies provide for the payment of a lump sum benefit if the policyholder is diagnosed as suffering from one of a number of specified terminal illnesses. Depending on the policy selected, up to many dozen other conditions may also be covered. This is a complex level of cover and we believe it is imperative you get qualified advice because the criteria form all providers will vary.

Income Protection Income Protection insurance can provide a regular replacement income if someone is unable to work because of illness or injury. Typically, a policy pays out after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been off work for a certain period (often called a deferred or waiting period) and can pay a percentage of their salary until either they return to work, reach State Pension Age, or if they die while claiming.

Mortgage Protection Mortgage Protection Insurance is designed to cover the cost of your remaining mortgage balance if the unexpected happen to you or your partner. In essence it is a decreasing term policy because the amount of cover reduces in line with the balance of your mortgage as you make monthly payments. In the event of a death of a policyholder a cash lump sum is paid out equivalent to the mortgage balance to ensure your loved ones can live mortgage free. Generally payments are slightly cheaper than level term cover to reflect the reduced risk.

Private Medical Insurance We know that choosing a health insurance policy can be difficult with so many options available in the marketplace and types of cover available. It is therefore vitally important you choose the correct level of cover and plan. At Cornerstone we will establish your precise needs and recommend a plan that is both affordable and relevant. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on cover you and can have peace of mind knowing that you and possibly your family are covered. Health insurance can be taken out by an employer to cover all employees, by a single person, couple or families. You can gain cover if your self-employed, a student or a busy professional.

Business Insurance Protection Business protection could help client owned businesses continue to trade should a key person or business owner die or become terminally or critically ill. Proceeds from the policy could help ensure that key individuals are replaced, corporate debt is protected and shares from the deceased partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s/directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate are purchased. Many believe arranging business protection to be a lengthy and complicated process. But actually, the principles are similar to any other type of protection.
