Less standardisation, more personalisation
Investment properties continue to be a fantastic way to create wealth. Borrowers rely on intermediaries to provide them with the best advice and solutions to suit their situation.
At Roma we understand the importance of security and an exit strategy. So we introduced our special 5-year mortgage product, enabling landlords to retain the property but release the equity.
We’re also a lender less ordinary when it comes to property types, including HMOs and refurbs. Even using one loan to exit another. Let’s get the next new venture moving.
- 5 year medium–term solution for purchase and refinance
- Solutions for buy-to-let, HMOs, holiday lets and serviced accommodation
- Loans up to £500,000
- No minimum experience, income or ownership
- Up to 70% LTV (75% if exiting a Roma bridge)
- Top slicing considered
- Manual underwriting – every case considered individually
- Direct access to underwriters for quick decisions and completions
- Lending across England and Wales
Got a question? We have answers.
A buy-to-let mortgage is a finance option for people to buy property as an investment, rather than as their residential home. Usually, a buy-to-let mortgage requires a larger deposit and will incur a higher rate of interest. This is because lenders often seek extra security, considering that there could be periods with no tenant while renting out a property, or the tenant may fail to keep up with their payments.
LTV stands for loan to value and is a measure of the balance between the amount of the mortgage and the property value.
Top-slicing is where a borrower’s personal income is used to top up any shortfall in rent which is needed for the borrower to obtain the finance they require.
Six steps from enquiry
Over many years of arranging bridging finance, the Roma team has refined the process to make it hassle-free and responsive. Above all to make it quick, because property deadlines are tight deadlines.
It takes lending less ordinary to fast-track cases, twin-track the legals and the underwriting… do whatever it takes to drive the sale forward.
Yet no matter how rapidly we’re working, we always meet the borrower, take the trouble to understand what makes each case different, and keep everyone informed at every stage.
Need to complete within 48 hours? We can run stages 2 – 5 simultaneously, and may even release funds to our solicitor before the due diligence process has been completed.
1. Initial enquiry
Call us on 0161 817 7480, email or complete the enquiry form and your loan is on its way.
2. Agreement in principle
The AIP accelerates the process by telling you exactly which documents we need before we can underwrite your loan, also providing Open Banking instructions.
3. Valuation and borrower meeting
We’ll get a third party valuation arranged ASAP, and we never lend until we’ve met the borrower and understood the case.
4. Confirm terms
After we’ve met the borrower and underwritten the case, we will confirm the loan terms.
5. Instruct solicitors
Once terms are accepted, we will instruct our solicitor to send legal papers required for completion to your solicitor.
Funds are released and we might also release funds to your solicitor before the due diligence process has been completed.
