SPV Ltd Co purchases rental property without all major shareholders offering a personal guarantee

We were approached by an experienced landlord who was looking to expand her property portfolio. She had her eyes set on a 3-bed terraced house in Gravesend, which she planned to let to professionals on a single AST agreement.

On the advice of her accountant the client had decided to make the purchase via her SPV Ltd Co. When dealing with limited companies, lenders typically ask for personal guarantees from company directors and major shareholders. Whilst the client was the sole director and majority shareholder of the company, the client's spouse also held a substantial number of shares but did not wish to offer a personal guarantee.

We contacted an intermediary only lender which, after carrying out due diligence on both shareholders, was happy to assist without insisting on a personal guarantee from the client’s spouse. The following terms were offered:

Property value: £270,000

Loan amount: £202,500

LTV: 75%

Rate: 3.99% 5 year fixed

Term: 25 years interest only

RTI: 125% @ 3.99%

Borrower: SPV Ltd Co

Lender arrangement fee: 2% (£4,050)

Mortgage payment: £674 pcm

Rental income: £1,200 pcm

Gross yield: 5.3% pa
