Whether your client’s a landlord with a portfolio of four or 40 properties, our flexibility, individual case assessment and empowered sales team means we could help you meet their needs.

Here’s an example of how Kent Reliance for Intermediaries could support you with your portfolio landlord cases: You’re approached by a client with an existing portfolio of 43 properties valued at around £10.75 million.

They’d like to expand their buy to let business by purchasing an additional property worth £250,000 but are struggling to find a mortgage – many lenders have a cap on the number of properties and/or a maximum mortgage value.

Fortunately, Kent Reliance for Intermediaries doesn’t set a limit on the number or value of properties mortgaged with us. What’s more, we don’t set limits on the size or value of existing portfolios held with other lenders.

Our experienced underwriters assess the application and are able to offer your landlord client the mortgage they need to make the purchase.

As a leader in the specialist mortgage market and part of the OSB Group, Kent Reliance for Intermediaries offers a range of buy to let and residential mortgage products for clients that may not fit the criteria of mainstream lenders.
Our market knowledge and willingness to look at each application individually gives us the ability to see the potential and help brokers navigate challenging cases.

With our manual, handcrafted underwriting process and unrivalled personal service provided by our empowered national team of business development managers, we could provide tailored solutions that support you and your clients.
