Why Landlords with Smaller Deposits?

Since 2008 most buy to let lenders have typically asked landlords to provide a deposit of at least 25 per cent on each property. That acts as a larger buffer in the case of any future property price deflation. However, many portfolio landlords wish to expand their portfolios by taking a small amount of equity from one property to invest in buying the next. They also spread risk across multiple properties by splitting capital into small deposits. Vida will lend up to 85% LTV meaning that your customer only needs to find 15% deposit.
