What is a Rental Portfolio Loan?

A Rental Portfolio Loan, also known as a landlord portfolio loan or a buy-to-let mortgage, is a financing solution designed for real estate investors who own multiple (usually 5 or more) rental properties. Rather than securing individual mortgages for each property, investors can consolidate their properties into a single loan, simplifying management and potentially reducing costs.

How Do You Get a Rental Portfolio Loan?

  4. Underwriting Process: Our underwriters will assess the risk associated with your portfolio and determine loan terms. This may include a property appraisal, credit checks, and evaluation of your rental income.
  5. Loan Approval: If your application is approved, you’ll receive a loan offer outlining the terms and conditions of the loan, including interest rate, loan amount, and repayment schedule.
  6. Closing: Once you accept the loan offer, we will schedule the loan closing.

Rental Portfolio Loan Requirements

While specific requirements may vary depending on the lender and the characteristics of your portfolio, common requirements for obtaining a rental portfolio loan include:

  • Stable Rental Income: Portfolios with a history of stable and consistent rental income, long-term tenants and low vacancy rates are viewed more favorably.
  • Property Condition: We may assess the condition of your properties to ensure they are well-maintained and in good standing.
  • Creditworthiness: A strong credit history demonstrates your ability to manage debt responsibly and may impact the loan terms.
  • Sufficient Equity: Requires a minimum amount of equity in your portfolio to reduce their risk, often expressed as a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio.
