Buy to let mortgages

A buy to let mortgage is designed for those who want to buy property to rent out to a third party.

As with a residential mortgage you can choose between fixed, discount, and other mortgage types, however the key difference is working out how much you can borrow. 

Mortgage advice

Buy to let mortgage lenders look at the likely rental income from the property as well as the applicant's annual income. Here are some good points to note when looking into a buy to let mortgage:

  • Loan-to-value (LTV) is generally 60%-85% for buy to let mortgages.
  • Your rental income will generally need to be around 125% of the monthly mortgage payments.
  • You can expect a buy to let mortgage to be approximately 1%-2% more than a residential mortgage.
  • Many landlords prefer a buy to let interest only mortgage. The lender will normally base affordability on the rental income which will generally need to be 125% more than the monthly payments.
  • If you are planning to create a lettings portfolio – some lenders will place a cap on the number of properties it will mortgage.

I can't speak highly enough about Your Move in Keighley they are the best letting agents I have ever used and would definitely recommend them to family, friends and anyone wishing to rent a property. From the moment Evie phoned me to say I could put in an application for the house, I am now renting, she kept me up to date with the process and it was a pleasure to speak to her, nothing was too much trouble and she was very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I must also mention Harry and Jade who were also a pleasure to speak to when Evie was away, they sorted out any queries I had in the same manner as Evie had done. It is very rare these days for people to phone back when they say they will but Evie, Harry and Jade were always true to their word, even with the property market being so busy, which means so much. Well done Your Move for employing such a lovely team in Keighley.

Exceptional service. Ainhoa and Steve went over and above to secure a fast sale, ensuring we didn't miss out on the property we wanted. Friendly, professional, helpful and very accommodating. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to sell their home.
