Buy-to-let (BTL) mortgages are for landlords who want to buy property to rent it out. The rules around buy-to-let mortgages are similar to those around regular mortgages, but there are some key differences:
- The fees tend to be much higher
- Interest rates are usually higher
- The minimum deposit is usually 25% of the purchase price of the property
- The maximum you can borrow is linked to the amount of rental income you expect to receive
- Most BTL lending is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
- Most BTL mortgages are interest-only. This means you only pay the interest each month, and not the capital amount. At the end of the mortgage term, you repay the original loan in full.
- A BTL may also have a repayment profile and many products have the facility to overpay during the product period, subject to certain limits, which will be contained in the mortgage conditions.
Our advisers have a wealth of experience dealing with BTL mortgages. They will make you fully aware of the process, what the commitment is for you as a landlord / investor and where any potential risks lie. Please look at our page on BTL tips for more information.
