General Market Spotlight - Do I Stay or Do I Go?

Is now the right time for clients to make that all-important move? Should they take the plunge and invest in home improvements or that extension they have always wanted? If they're working from home indefinitely, should a client consider building a home office?

This discussion will take in high LTV's, stamp duty changes, help-to-buy, shared ownership, further advances and 2nd charges, and how the current climate is affecting these.

  • Hot Topics September Lender Panel Session - Incomes Recorded: Sep 18 2020 57 mins
    L&G Mortgage Club
    It certainly feels like rush hour out there for advisers at the moment and just like when roads get busy, a quick search in your sat nav can suggest alternative safe and quick routes - Legal and General Mortgage Clubs FREE criteria sourcing tool ‘SmartrCrtiteria’ can really help you navigate your customers on the correct route to securing their mortgage needs!

    To support you further, we would like to invite you to join the first SmartrCriteria "Hot Topics” session where 3 lender partners and an L&G Mortgage Club Host will interrogate certain criteria items.

    The first topic we have chosen to explore is 'Incomes'.

    It will be a Q&A session covering additional incomes, furloughed incomes, unusual incomes etc and a real opportunity to hear from the various lenders thoughts and views on how they are treating incomes and why.

    The session is designed to keep you up to date on changes surrounding incomes to help support your conversations with customers.

    We will be joined by:
    • Chris Blewitt - Darlington Building Society
    • Iain Cunningham - Accord Mortgages
    • Nathan Goodridge - Kent Reliance for Intermediaries
  • Kent Reliance for Intermediaries Webinar - Navigating the tax landscape for your Recorded: Sep 4 2020 59 mins
    Roger Morris, Group Distribution Director and Nathan Goodridge, National Account Manager
    The session focuses on the introduction of restrictions to income tax relief on 6th April 2017 which has significantly impacted landlords and the profitability of their portfolios.

    Prior to April 2017, landlords had been able to deduct 100% of their home finance costs from their rental income to calculate the taxable rental profit. These restrictions have been gradually phased in and now, tax year (2020/21), there is no allowable deduction for finance costs at all.

    In this session we will outline each tax that landlords need to be aware of prior to purchasing, transferring into a company structure or selling an investment property. This includes the capital gains tax liabilities of incorporating and the implications of buying or transferring property for stamp duty land tax and inheritance tax.

    While brokers should not be giving tax advice to their clients, it’s important that they too, are aware of the tax implications for their landlord clients.
