Lending Changes for Landlords | Carla Sateriale, UK Finance

Bank of England changes to underwriting standards are causing major restrictions to buy to let lending, particularly for portfolio landlords.  The Council Of Mortgage Lenders is now UK Finance and Carla will outline the context and rationale for the changes and explain how and why buy to let lenders have devised new criteria.

The Best Options for Borrowers | With Simon Allen, Searchlight Finance

Richard will ask leading broker, Simon Allen, for his thoughts on how the market and lenders may react to the PRA changes, and the best options for borrowers.

London Hotspots & The Housing Market Review | Mark Lawrinson, Regional Director, Portico

Redevelopment abounds in London and Mark will pinpoint the latest hotspots.  With sales and rental markets under pressure this year in London, will prices be maintained by underlying factors like shortage of supply or does the spectre of Brexit threaten a more serious decline?  Mark will take us through the latest figures, including a borough by borough analysis of rental yield.

 Panel Debate: Are HMOs The Answer?

Ash Zuberi, HMO Group

Instant ValuationAlison Broderick, Chartered Planner

Richard Tacagni, London Property Licensing & Chartered EHO

Simon Allen, Searchlight Finance

Lending has been the life blood of most property businesses, but changes to criteria mean that landlords need to demonstrate higher rental yields to get the 75% LTV mortgages that were the mainstay of the buy to let sector.  With their higher yields are HMOs the answer or are you perturbed by the higher levels of maintenance and regulation involved?  In this lively panel discussion, we will explore the lending landscape and extrapolate the licensing, planning and management challenges.
