Specialist lending packager Complete FS has launched a series of seminars designed to help intermediaries better understand the opportunities in specialist lending sectors.
The first seminar will take place at St Mary’s, the Southampton Football Club stadium on 10 March.
The first event concentrates on buy-to-let and will be supported by major lenders. Complete FS has also invited a taxation expert, who will be talking about the implications of the loss of tax relief under the Chancellor’s tapering proposals as well as how the use of limited company buy-to-let products can offset the loss of tax relief for higher rate tax payers.
Further seminars on specific topics will be held at the same venue on the following dates 12 May (secured loans), 14 July (bridging and commercial) and 17 November (adverse/complex mortgages).
Tony Salentino, director at Complete FS, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming every intermediary with an interest in the Buy to Let market. While the changes to stamp duty and the planned restriction on tax relief look daunting for brokers and their landlord clients, the purpose of this seminar is to demonstrate that there are still plenty of opportunities to help landlords purchase and also offset some of the effects of the changes.
“Every adviser coming to the event will have the opportunity not only to listen but to talk to some of the most knowledgeable BTL exponents in the market. A tax expert will also provide particularly important guidance on how best to help landlords protect their existing portfolios of property as well as looking at where using a Limited Company SPV, can be advantageous for new purchases.”
