Buy to let

A Buy to Let mortgage is a mortgage designed for individuals or landlords who are purchasing a property with the intention of leasing it out on either a short or long term let.

A Buy to Let mortgage is essentially for people who want to invest in a property rather than live in it themselves. Buy to let mortgages differ from regular mortgages as:

  • The fees tend to be higher because securing a Buy To Let mortgage is more complex than securing a regular mortgage
  • The interest rates tend to be higher
  • The deposit required is usually higher than that required for a regular mortgage – typically between 25% and 40% of the purchase price
  • Many Buy to Let Mortgages are on an interest only basis. This means that the monthly payments are lower than on a repayment mortgage but you will be required to repay the loan in full at the end of the mortgage term
  • The amount of money you can borrow will be linked to the amount of income the property can be expected to generate.
