What we require from brokers to submit a portfolio case:


Our definition of a portfolio landlord is someone with four or more mortgaged properties.

We believe the simplest solution is to just look at the existing portfolio’s leverage, loan to value (LTV) and coverage.

All we require is a spreadsheet, showing details of the portfolio. We use this, along with automated valuation models (AVMs) and other background checks, to focus more on the concentration of the portfolio, undertake bespoke stress tests and ensure that the aggregate portfolio is 75% or less.

At DIP stage we will require a summary of the portfolio, including:

  • Total number of properties in the same postcode
  • Value of the properties
  • Loan amounts for the properties
  • Rental income for each property
  • Details for new loan

At FMA stage we will require details for all the properties in the portfolio. There is no need to submit business plans and liability details.

More from us


Landlords show continued commitment to buy to let market

The latest landlord research undertaken by BVA BDRC and carried out in March 2019 shows that landlords, particularly those portfolio landlords with more than four mortgaged buy to let properties, not only want to expand their portfolios in the years ahead but want to continue earning rental income from these properties in the long-term.
