Nationwide specialist lending arm UCB Home Loans is offering a free guide
to buy-to-let borrowing.
The guide has been designed to help intermediaries explain to clients the
benefits and pitfalls of becoming a landlord and covers issues including
tax, tenancy agreements and financing.
UCB is offering the guide after independent research by the University of
York showed private landlords got gross returns of 8.3 per cent in the
third quarter of last year in addition to the general increase in the value
of the property.
UCB managing director Charles Reed says: “We have launched this guide to
help people through the buy-to-let process and inform them of what is
“More and more people are entering this market and we hope to ensure they
get the most out of investing in property.”
