Buying A Property to Rent (Buy to Let).
This can be a popular mortgage option for those wishing to invest in residential rental property. Although the perception is that buy to let mortgages are expensive, this isn't necessarily correct. There are many lenders who offer competitive rates, which in many cases are generally similar to the rates offered on a standard mortgage.
Landlords also have a choice between interest only and repayment mortgages. Buy to Let mortgages do differ in several ways from standard mortgages. When lenders are considering approving a buy to let loan, they generally base their decision on the likely rental income from the property and not necessarily the applicants' income. A prospective landlord needs to be aware that the rental income typically needed is about 145%of the mortgage repayment, although this can vary between lenders.
