Independent mortgage broker John Charcol has teamed up with online letting agent Upad to help landlords maximise their buy-to-let investment.
The partnership will see Upad provide its landlord clients with access to John Charcol experts who can help them navigate the ever-changing buy to let landscape. This will include providing regular webinars and guides, a dedicated advice line and online access to buy to let experts.
The new collaboration comes at a time of constant change for the buy-to-let investor, with recent changes to stamp duty, taxation and lending criteria have placed increased pressure on landlords.
“By working together, we can help landlords confront the challenges of the market and ensure they receive the maximum benefit from their investment,” said Alan Young, chief commercial officer at John Charcol.
Upad’s recent annual survey highlighted that 27% of landlords were concerned about buy-to-let mortgages, in light of more stringent lending conditions, which is partly why the online agent is now keen to show that it is “more than just an innovative tech solution for landlords”, according to Alan Young, chief commercial officer at John Charcol.
“Instead seeing Upad as a lighthouse for landlords trying to navigate their way through the world of buy-to-let,” said Young. “John Charcol will help us take this to the next level.”
