What is a buy-to-let mortgage?
A buy-to-let mortgage is a mortgage for people who want to buy a property and then rent out to tenants. Buy-to-let mortgages generally need a larger deposit than residential mortgages and the interest rates are typically higher. A buy-to-let mortgage is often a great option for people looking to make a large investment or actively enter the rental property market.
Who can get a buy-to-let mortgage?
- You must be able to afford to take and understand the risks of investing in property.
- You have a good credit record and aren’t stretched too much on your other borrowings e.g. credit cards.
- Have a 25% deposit although a small selection of lenders will accept 20% we recommend 25% as it opens up more of the market.
- You must be prepared to take the responsibilities of a landlord.
