Buy to Let

Providing individual mortgage advice; unique to you

Whether you’re becoming a landlord for the first time or you’re looking to expand an existing portfolio you will need to take out a buy to let mortgage rather than a standard residential mortgage. A buy to let mortgage is specifically for people who are buying a property to rent out to a tenant or tenants.

How do buy to let mortgages differ from residential mortgages? :

  • Interest rates are usually higher on buy to let mortgages compared to residential
  • Whereas for residential mortgages your deposit could be as little as 5% of the property value you will have to pay at least 25% for a buy to let mortgage.
  • Unlike a standard mortgage, where the amount you can borrow is linked to your income, with a buy to let mortgage, the lender will instead look at how much rent you could make from the property on which the mortgage is secured. 

Buy to let regulation

Under the FCA handbook, a buy-to-let mortgage falls out of the scope of being regulated where the following conditions are met:

  • uses the mortgage to buy a property, intending to rent it out
  • has previously bought the property intending to let it out and neither they nor their relatives have lived there
  • already owns another property that has been let out on a rental basis.

Where these conditions are not met, this would be considered a consumer buy to let and would, therefore, fall under the scope of a regulated mortgage.
