Case Study: Why Rent to Buy isn’t Just for First-Time Buyers!


There can be certain misconceptions about our Rent to Buy scheme, and mainly it seems to be the assumption that Renting to Buy is solely for first-time buyers. While it is a very worthwhile scheme for these first-time buyers, and does help people get their first step onto the property ladder, it is just as useful for people looking to move properties.


What is LTV (Loan To Value)?


LTV is simply a shorthand version of Loan To Value, which is a common financial term. It is typically used by lenders to express the ratio of the loan in relation to the value of the property, or asset, purchased. It is normally presented as the percentage of your property that has been mortgaged to you. For example, if you had a 10% deposit on your mortgage, then your LTV would be the remaining 90%. (The 10% of the property that you own is referred to as your Home Equity – which we discussed in greater detail here.)

What Can Homes With Options Do For You?


Homes With Options is not an estate agent. We are an introducer and broker for lettings and seller financed properties. We are experts in Rent to Buy (or Rent to Own, and Rent to Sell for sellers), which is an efficient, flexible scheme that offers both the buyer and seller tailor-made, individual options on each property. Rent to Buy creates a unique contract for every property, which consists of a buyer purchasing a property over a fixed yearly term, while they live in the property and pay monthly rent as they save for and add to the mortgage deposit. (Discover more about our beneficial Rent to Buy scheme, through Homes With Options, in our article here.)


How Does Rent to Buy Work for Me?


Rent to Buy is simply a way to buy or sell something, except that the transaction does not take place immediately. The Rent to Buyer and Rent to Seller basically agree to the possibility of a sale sometime in the future, usually in a few years’ time, and draw up a contract agreement. In the meantime, the Rent to Buyer lives in the property, and pays rent to the Rent to Seller, which also contributes to reducing their house deposit when they go to purchase the home in the future.
