Years Of Helping Landlords Build Portfolios
Are you considering buying a rental property and want to look into buy to let mortgages? Or are you thinking remortgaging a current house you are landlord of to improve the rental yield? If you have already started to inquire into the buy to let mortgage market you will probably have established that it differs slightly from trying to find a home. The residential property mortgages lenders do not always do any buy to let and the calculations for establishing what you can borrow work differently. This can seem complex, but with our help we can get your landlord aspirations in situ with the absolute minimum of delay. To ensure you are the one calling the shots, we will provide you with a free no obligation quotation to illustrate exactly what we can do and exactly what it will cost so that you can make an informed decision to go with our proposal, or not. Whether you are a first time landlord or an experienced one with a large portfolio, the importance of teaming up with a business who has a solid history in your sector is not to be underestimated.

Buy to let mortgages have some significant differences from their conventional cousins. One of the most important differences is that with a buy to let mortgage a lender will take into account the anticipated rental income of the home, amongst other things. Some will work on an expected rental income from the proposed property being no less than 125% of the mortgage repayment, of course if you have a reasonable deposit and we find you a low cost buy to let mortgage then that box should be ticked fine. If for example, your mortgage repayment is £450 then your monthly rental income would ideally be around £575. The mortgage repayment calculator in particular will allow you to calculate your mortgage payment and how much rental you would need to be accepted for a buy to let mortgage.
Another Important distinction is the amount of deposit you will require. With a buy to let mortgage the minimum deposit that is required is 20-25% depending on the lender. However it is believed that the home buy scheme or similar may well be available for landlords shortly which means you could get a second home on board at deposit levels of around 10%. This is still more than a 5% deposit to purchase a residential property which some mortgage lenders may offer for example, but not a million miles away. As we give free no obligation quotes and have access to multiple plans in any case then there you might be just as well to give us a call and find out what the latest options are for you in any case. If you use our loan to value (LTV) calculator it will even tell you the amount of deposit that will be required for the price of the letting property you are looking to purchase at a given LTV.
How much you can borrow for a buy to let mortgage depends on a number of things. The amount of deposit and rental income has an impact as we have already established. Along with that the affordability of the loan is of prime concern to the lender, this buy to let mortgage should be a solid investment for both you and the lender. We all want a `win win` situation. In addition lenders will often want you to have landlords insurance to avoid legal issues and you may want to get rental insurance to cover your mortgage payments if you have a period without tenants.

An interest only mortgage on a buy to let can be an effective way of keeping your monthly mortgage repayments low, all the while maximising the return on your rental income. Once the mortgage term is over you can either come back to us to look at a remortgage, or alternatively sell your property and use any equity from the sale to purchase another buy to let or spend as you see fit. If you would like to compare your monthly return with an interest only mortgage to a repayment mortgage use our buy to let calculator, more specifically the mortgage repayment calculator which will show you the mortgage payment for both repayment and interest only for any rates you may want to try.
