Small portfolio landlord criteria

Applies to small portfolio landlord products only

How does Landbay determine if a case should be treated as a small portfolio landlord application?

If the combined number of buy-to-let properties (both encumbered and unencumbered) owned by the applicants is four or less at the time of underwriting, then we deem the landlord to be a small portfolio landlord.
