Buy to Let

Buy to Let in recent years has become an increasingly popular mortgage option for those wishing to invest in residential rental property.

However, some potential investors are put off entering the Buy to Let market due to the popular perception that Buy to Let mortgages are expensive.

Buy to Let – the story today

This popular misconception no longer holds true as lenders today are now offering increasingly competitive rates, which in many cases are generally not significantly higher than those on standard mortgages.

Landlords also have a choice between interest only and repayment mortgages. However, Buy to Let mortgages do differ in several important ways from standard mortgages.

A major difference is the criteria lenders apply when considering approving a loan. Buy to Let mortgage lenders base their decisions generally on whether or not to approve a loan on the likely rental income from the property.  Whilst the level of the applicants’ income is taken into consideration it is not as critical as with residential mortgages.

In order to secure finance, rental income is typically needed to be 125% of the notional mortgage interest rate. This notional mortgage interest rate can typically be set at between 5.00% and 6.00%. The level it is set at is individual to each lender and subject to what basis they wish to operate on.
