Hospitality businesses like blocks of Holiday Lets, small hotels, B&Bs (bed and breakfasts) and Guest Houses are more popular than ever. However, many traditional lenders haven’t quite sorted out how they want to treat these businesses. Many insist on offering mortgages only along more expensive commercial lines, while others refuse to lend entirely. If you are struggling with this situation, Holiday Let Mortgage UK can help.
