What is a Buy to Let mortgage?
A Buy to Let mortgage is designed for borrowers who would like to rent out a new or existing property to a third party. They can be used to purchase or remortgage a Buy to Let property, or for additional borrowing.
Trends in the Buy to Let mortgage market
The Buy to Let mortgage market has undergone continuous change in recent years. There have been a lot of regulatory changes as result of the MMR (Mortgage Market Review) in 2014 and more recently changes to Stamp Duty and tax rules for Buy to Let investors. Despite the added complexity, investing in a Buy to Let property or portfolio of properties can still prove to be an excellent long term investment.
What you need to consider before purchasing a Buy to Let property
Deposit and rental income
The deposit required for the purchase of a Buy to Let property is often higher than that required for a residential mortgage, as a result of stricter lender affordability criteria. This said, as a broker with unlimited access to the market, largemortgageloans.com has access to a range of competitive deals, from fixed rate and variable rate options, up to 85% LTV (Loan to Value).
The rental income you earn from the property relative to the monthly mortgage payments (the rental calculation) will also have an impact on the range of products available to you. Lenders assess these factors on a range of criteria, so finding the right lender could have a considerable impact on your property investments.
It is important to remember that you will still be responsible for maintaining the Buy to Let mortgage repayments if the property is vacant, so make sure provisions are in place, should this occur.
