HOW DOES THE SERVICE WORK?

Landlord Smart is a business designed by landlords for landlords. We know the pain of finding cash to pay for capital items and the negative effect this has on your business’s cash flow, followed by years of waiting to ‘perhaps’ get the money back via capital allowances. Our specialist funding takes away that pain and pays for costly capital items such as furniture, leaving you with manageable monthly payments that are allowable ‘before tax expenses’, meaning you’re running your business in the most tax efficient way!

There are just two simple requirements to be able to qualify for our lease finance and receive a decision in principle within 72 hours:

  1. You must be running property either as a limited company or an LLP (properties can either be owned by the business or you personally).
  2. You must have a minimum planned spend of £2,000

Landlord Smart have access to a wide range of finance associates. We pride ourselves on matching the best finance partner to you and your project, whatever property investment strategy you use.

WHAT DO LANDLORD SMART DO FOR ME?

  • Sourcing: We source and work with a variety of finance providers who offer the most appropriate funding for your specific property projects and financial circumstances.
  • Expertise: We are successful landlords and property developers so we will instantly ‘get’ your business and needs, but we also have a deep understanding of the finance markets, which makes us the perfect partner to facilitate you getting the right finance product.
  • Screening: We will only submit applications for finance if we know you have a strong chance of approval. We speak to each of our clients to gather all relevant information and fully explain our offering and terms.
  • Tax: For you to benefit from tax relief on all costs associated with your finance, you will not be able to take ownership of the items directly at any time. We are able to offer you continued use of the products for a further 24 months after your lease has ended for just two additional payments, equal to your monthly payment. Should you decide to upgrade your furniture after the term, it will be your responsibility to dispose of the unwanted items.
  • Administration: We have a dedicated admin team that will work with you, your supplier(s) and our finance partners to ensure your application is processed smoothly and in your required time frames.

THE LANDLORD SMART MISSION

THE NEED

There are over two million landlords and property professionals in the UK alone; thousands of these landlords run businesses providing fully furnished rental accommodation. The cost of furnishing each project may not seem huge, but when you multiply these costs by the number of projects landlords undertake every year, this equates to a vast amount of capital outlay, affecting cashflow and capital expenditure within their businesses.

GIVING BACK

Whilst we want to increase the wealth and success of our clients, we also feel it’s important to give back to the community and share this wealth and success, which is why we have partnered with an organisation called Buy 1 Give 1. This means that every time we provide lease finance for a project, we provide 35 days of shelter to an underprivileged family in India.

THE MISSION

To provide a finance service that enables landlords to furnish properties to desired standards whilst keeping capital for reinvestment in further projects, helping to grow their businesses more quickly and efficiently with the added benefit that all fees and monthly payments are 100% tax deductible.

Step 1: Phone call to discuss your project

 

We speak to each and every client before starting an application to ensure that our service is right for you and your project and to answer any questions you may have.

Step 2: Supplier quote(s) sent to Landlord Smart

 

We have a list of pre-approved suppliers or we can contact your chosen supplier and see if they are willing to work with us. We are only able to work with trade suppliers.

Step 3: Application completed 

 

We will work with you to quickly and efficiently complete your application. 

Step 4: Decision in principle within 72 hours

 

To obtain a decision in principle, a company credit check will be performed. If your company has been trading for under 3 years, a check will be made against you as an individual.

 

A decision in principle does not activate the finance; further paperwork will need to be completed as quickly as possible to finalise the arrangement. 

 

Step 5: Agreement signed & finance activated

 

You will need to provide various pieces of documentation to accompany your application. You will also need to print and sign the lease agreement and make your first monthly direct debit payment. Finally, you must have insurance cover for these items to cover loss, damage or theft during the lease term. This can be arranged with the finance company or with your own insurers. 

Step 6: That's it! What's your next project?

 

Congratulations! Your lease finance is now in place and you've joined hundreds of other SMART landlords who are freeing up capital and running their businesses in the most tax efficient way.
