    This is the real kicker most people are missing. So many people will be pushed into the higher rate tax bracket due to this - so this is what you need to be aware of.

    As a contractor it hits us double because it reduces the amount you can earn from your IT company before suffering higher rate dividend tax.

    Going back to your original request, you won't get a 100% loan (unless you get private funding) but you can get up to 85% from specialist lenders like Kent Reliance. As you might imagine, these do come at a cost.
    I wouldn't call it punitive taxation - then again I don't believe that interest should be tax deductible at all as it distorts the market....

    Tell that to any other business. Let's make it truly 'fair'. You've got to see through the bullsh1t HMRC spout before you really see what's going on.

    It was better before Gordon removed MIRAS under a Labour government in 2000. Prior to that, everyone had interest cost relief and so the all homeowners were on a level pegging, and in a better position than today.

    But - rather than re-introduce a MIRAS type solution, the Cons decided to tax everyone sh1ltoads more. Giving all homeowners interest relief would have created so much more positive economic output and eventually more taxation revenue.

    And instead of a win/win for the people of this country, the government simply thought "how can we extract as much tax revenue from everyone". They're slaying the goose.

    And everyone's a loser.

    So you agree that the market has been unfairly biased against owner occupiers for 20 years but don't accept that things need to change....

    Also MIRAS was restricted to the first 30,000 of a loan, was essentially killed off in 1988 (causing the crash in 1989-91) and worked remarkably similarly to the way S24 works...

    And no doubt you agree that all contractors should be forced under PAYE for 100% of their earnings. After all, it's not fair that the market is unfairly biased against employees, right?

    That's not the way the world works though is it? You take on risk, so you should reap the reward.

    But we digress. My point - abundantly clear in my previous post - was that there are positive ways to influence the market and the economy, but successive UK governments instead choose to influence by legislation that penalizes rather than promotes.

    However what ideally Id like to do is take out as near a 100% Mortgage and use the balance to buy another property, the equity in the BTL is about the 10% Id need as a deposit for the place I want to buy, does anyone out there still do 100% Mortgage for BTL?
    Oh FFS. Look, I'll buy the bloody house. They only cost 3k up North anyway.

    If you are a bum on seat contractor then yes I do believe things should be fair (hint I'm no longer a bum on a seat contractor)... And given the structural deficit Gordon Brown left the economy in you can see why the decision was made to equalise the issue by S24 rather than introducing Miras...

    So punitive taxation is OK so long as it doesn't affect you. Or maybe you would be happy paying retrospective tax on all those years that you were a bum-on-seat contractor? After all, the government needs that money more than ever now.

    But seriously, the point is that there are positive ways to influence the economy, to promote growth rather than penalize success. It's just that governments choose to slay the goose rather than invest in all and reap the rewards.

    Anyway..................I trust that OP's question on mortgages has been answered.

    And its possible that tax could be introduced as a positive way to slowly influence what is currently perceived by many to be a bubble in asset pricing..... As with everything personal interests can triumph over other considerations....

    Hasn't this boat sailed loonng way back?

    Personally I feel BTL mortgages should not exist. On the other hand they do help get rental properties on the market. However, this market is now totally dependent on the monthly mortgage payment owed and hence the rent itself is a distorted amount.

    A real clean up is required and rents should come down massively to reasonable levels and not levels determined by how much mortgage leverage the 'landlord' has gotten his nose into.

    Surely rents would go up? The only landlords would be the mega-rich, there would be a lower supply not matching demand. I doubt they'd have any desire to reduce the rents they charge. They'd probably put them up.

    Many businesses borrow money to buy assets (stock, machinery, buildings) so why should being a landlord be the reserve of the super rich who don't need to borrow?
