Getting a mortgage is hard work.

Ever since the property market went *pop* most major banks have made getting mortgages harder than ever.  Chuck into that some extra regulatory hoops to wriggle over and you’ll soon find yourself wondering if you ever really wanted to buy a property.

Anyway, it would appear the Kickstarter effect has winged it’s haloed glow over to property investment.

Now I have to confess, I don’t know, nor have experience of these schemes.

Are they a good idea?

I am going to throw that over to you!

Like any investment – there are risks.  You MUST and I repeat, MUST read the small print.  Regardless of how small they make it.  Ts & Cs in my experience with lenders, have a habit of catching you out.

So, if you fancy an alternative way to finance your property investment – here’s some companies to start you off.  I have no affiliation with these companies and would welcome your feedback.
