A multi-unit freehold – or multi-unit freehold block (MUFB) can sound complex. In its simplest definition, MUFB means a property split into multiple units on one freehold title. Each unit is self-contained with its own private entrance and separate AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy). Each unit will have its separate Assured Shorthold Tenancy in place. MUFBs differ to Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) properties as HMO’s share the kitchen facility, bathroom and communal space with at least three other tenants.
A MUFB may include:
The choice of lenders offering a MUFB mortgage is less than a conventional buy-to-let mortgage.
Each lender has their own criteria and interest rates can be higher than other buy-to-let products.
We are here to explore the right solution for you and know which lenders will lend.
With multiple units to let, your exposure to rental voids is shared between the units. If one tenant leaves, you continue to receive the remaining rental income from the other units.
Rental yields are generally higher than a typical buy-to-let.
Unlike HMOs, you do not need a licence.
It is important to note, there are also pitfalls and MUFBs generally suit more experienced landlords who know the market well.
A house of multiple occupation (HMO) will have shared facilities. A MUFB will be a property divided into self-contained units with their own kitchen and bathroom facilities.
Yes. Like a normal buy to let, you can own the property as a limited company.
An AST stands for Assured Shorthold Tenancy. Each unit will have its separate Assured Shorthold Tenancy in place.
Properties can be purpose built as an MUFB or converted into one.
