Dave is an experienced buy-to-let investor who sees opportunities in the current market to grow his portfolio.

The agreed purchase price is £200,000 but the property’s true value is £235,000, which he knows valuers will confirm. How can he maximise his borrowing and save his cash for further purchases?
