Buying to Let

A buy to let mortgage is what you’ll take out if you plan to buy a property to rent it out. If you rent out your property, you become a landlord and have legal responsibilities to carry out. Buy to let mortgages often cost more than residential mortgages but you can use them to earn a profit.

The amount you can borrow with a buy to let mortgage depends on how much income you expect to get in rent. You often need a monthly rental income of 25 to 45% more than your monthly mortgage repayments.

Many lenders ask for at least £25,000 in rental income. Others may not ask for a minimum at all. If you’re a first time buyer, a lender is likely to consider your gross salary when you apply for a buy to let mortgage. You’ll need a buy to let mortgage if you rent your property out. 

If you already have a residential mortgage you’ll need to switch to a buy to let mortgage if you plan to rent it out.
