What is a multi-unit freehold block? 

A multi unit freehold block (MUFB) is one freehold property that is typically split into individual flats with no individual leases.  It can also apply to circumstances such as a row of terraced houses, again under one title.

Multi unit freehold blocks (MUFBs) can represent a very good investment opportunity whereby extra security can be provided by reducing your exposure to rental voids and typically they can provide a better yield when compared to a single residency buy to let property.

Not to be confused with a house of multiple occupation (HMO) where these will likely have shared facilities, an MUFB will have self-contained units with their own kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Some MUFB facts:

  • One freehold property split into individual units with no individual leases or possibly a row of terraced houses under one title
  • Can be a house conversion or purpose-built block of flats
  • Each unit is completely self-contained

Benefits of a MUFB Mortgage

Being a relatively specialist area of the buy to let sector, obtaining a multi unit let mortgage can come with its difficulties however, for most it is definitely possible.  Sometimes referred to as a multi unit buy to let mortgage, it’s simply knowing where to look.  It can also be useful to know a few of the basics.

  • Usually available up to a maximum of 75% of the property value or purchase price however, on occasion lending up to 80% may be possible
  • Usually also available to first time landlords (FTLs) but typically not first time buyers (FTBs) 
  • Restrictions typically apply to the number of units in each freehold property however it may be possible to find finance on unlimited numbers
  • Loans available for ownership through limited companies or as individuals
  • Interest only or capital and interest repayment methods available
  • Interest cover ratio (ICR) typically based on overall rentable value
