Can you get a mortgage on an allotment?


Recommended Posts

I've never heard of a mortgage being taken on an allotment, but if the freehold to the land is being sold, it may be possible. A mortgage broker would be able to advise you better.

 

Most mortgage companies have a minimum loan of £25,000.

 

Given that interest rates are so low, getting an unsecured loan might be simpler and not cost much more.

Next stupid question. ....

 

Why is it a stupid question? If people didn't ask then how would we learn? sounds to me like your the stupid one with an attitude like that.

Thankyou, never thought of the unsecured loan part. The land is £12000 then another plot of £7000 so still doesn't add up to enough then. I will call a few places. Thanks for the advice.

The fact you rent your own place means you have a cats chance in hell

and why Mr know it all is that? I am a Nurse with a good income and my partner also has a good income. The fact we do not own a house yet is nothing to do with money but our own choice for other reasons. I really do feel sorry for anyone that has to associate with you on a regular basis.

You should be able to buy a plot with a loan, but you don't want to pay more than £6k for an acre.

 

Thankyou, I will give them a call to see what approximate land size it as it just says 2 plots. Thanks

Sort-of. Boats/aircraft/hovercraft are the only things that can be:

a. mortgaged (a bit like land and estates in land); AND

b. arrested (a bit like individuals).

 

Anyway, yes- an allotment could be mortgaged (if its owner has the freehold or a long-leasehold).

The question is more whether any mortgagee would lend on its security!
