Investment mortgages are for those property buyers planning to rent out their property after purchase, or where the buyer already has at least one existing mortgage in Portugal. If the banks believe that the property will not be for sole use by the owner or that a commercial activity will be carried out there, they would normally treat it as an investment mortgage. Generally speaking, banks will only offer 50-60% of the property purchase price (or valuation if lower) for these types of mortgages.
We have provided alternative finance solutions for property buyers who may have a sophisticated investment portfolio. We can help put together back-to-back loan arrangements secured against listed investments. This can be where the lender takes over as custodian, or where a guarantee is provided by the existing custodian of the assets.
