    Further advance on a new mortage

    Further advance on a new mortage 7th Aug 18 at 7:28 PM
    Hi everyone
    Iím currently in the process of completing on my house with a NatWest mortage. House is £350,000 and Iíve got a mortage for £137,000 (I put £213,000 as a deposit). Itís due to complete within the next week or two.

    What Iíd like to know, is how quickly can you apply for a further advance on the mortage? An opportunity has come up (BTL investment) where I need £100,000

    Affordability wise, I should meet the criteria. The LTV should be ok as my house is £350,000 and it would bring the total up to £237,000.

    Just wondering if anybody else has found themselves in the situation of getting a further advance quickly. Do I need to be so many months into the mortage before Iím allowed to get an advance.

    Many thanks

    Surely its just cheaper to alter the purchase price/LTV before you complete?

    6 months before you apply, it will then probably be around a month before the funds are released.

    Personally I would alter the LTV of this application (and presumably the product) if you need the money sooner rather than later.

    Can you not get a BTL mortgage for the 100K?

    I suspect if you try to borrow more, you will have to choose a different deal which will probably be more expensive overall due to the higher LTV. It could also delay your current offer.
