What is a Buy to Let mortgage?


Most lenders prefer landlords take out specialist buy to let mortgages for rental properties rather than standard mortgage product because there is perceived to be an added risk for lenders.



How is a buy to let mortgage calculated?


The most popular buy to let mortgages are usually interest only mortgages which have lower monthly repayments although the amount you pay can be changed at any time by your lender.


With an interest only mortgage you will be paying off the interest on your mortgage every month. Once your mortgage terms come to an end the full cost of the mortgage will be due.



Deposit and LTV (Loan to Value)


Most lenders will expect your monthly rental income to exceed your mortgage repayments. You’ll also need a deposit for around 25% of the value of the property you want to buy meaning your LTV (loan to value ratio) will be about 75%.


For a property worth £200,000, if you have a 25% deposit for a buy to let mortgage, your LTV would be 75% so your buy to let mortgage would be for £150,000. You can also expect to pay higher interest rates than those on a standard mortgage.


Our highly experienced Buy to Let mortgage advisers in Birmingham are here to discuss the process and all your best options with you today.  Call us on: 0345 066 6555.

Mell Cath

We recently sold our property through Arden Estate Agents, and having failed to sell through another local estate agent we tried Arden's after they were recommended to us, I am so glad we did, as they sold our house within a couple of days and kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. I would genuinely recommend them to anybody who wants to sell or buy a property.

Exceptional. From meeting at the valuation to sales completion, Arden provided an honest, professional service throughout. Tony and Paul kept me updated with progress from finding a genuine purchaser to ensuring we experienced no unnecessary delays. I highly recommend them. My only regret I didn’t knock their door first. Exceptional.
