SMP to hold BTL protection webinar

The Society of Mortgage Professionals will continue its 2017 digital programme on Thursday 22 June with a webinar dedicated to protection in the buy-to-let market.

In conjunction with Royal London, it will examine why so many buy-to-let landlords fail to appreciate the need for protection – in the belief that their properties will provide the necessary income for their spouse or family when they retire or die.

“Our webinar will provide a variety of remedies for this potentially flawed assumption,” said SMP head of operations, Vishal Pandya.

“It will reveal the reality of the situation and suggest effective financial solutions for advisers to recommend, using life policies and suitable trusts.

“Also among the learning outcomes will be an explanation of landlords’ objectives for their buy-to-let portfolios, how these can be inconsistent with their attitude to protection, and how to identify the gaps in their protection provisions.”
