Mortgage Broker FAQs

  • What is a buy to let mortgage?

    A buy to let mortgage is a type of mortgage designed for people who want to purchase a property to rent out to tenants. A Buy to let mortgage is typically assessed based on the rental income of the property, rather than the borrower’s income.

  • How much can I borrow on a buy to let mortgage?

    Unlike a residential mortgage, where your income and expenses determine how much you can borrow, a buy to let mortgage is calculated on the basis of the rental income you are likely to receive from your property.

    Most buy to let lenders will require that your rental income is at least 125% (interest-only) of your monthly mortgage payments. So if your mortgage payments will be £1000 per month, your rent would need to be £1,2500 per month.

    The majority of lenders will also require that you are earning an income yourself. This is usually around £25k+ per annum.

  • How much deposit will I need?

    Buy-to-let mortgages typically require a higher minimum deposit than residential mortgages, usually around 25% of the property’s value. This can be a significant hurdle, but it also helps mitigate risk for lenders.

    So, on a property valued at £150,000 you may need a £37,500 deposit

  • What questions should I ask my mortgage advisor?

    Here are some questions you can ask your mortgage adviser:

    – How much can I borrow?
    – What type of mortgage is best for me?
    – What are the interest rates and fees?
    – What are the monthly repayments?
    – What happens if I can’t afford to make my repayments?
    – What are the pros and cons of different mortgage products?

  • What types of buy to let mortgages are available?

    The two main types of buy-to-let mortgages are:

    Repayment mortgages: These are the most common type, where you make monthly payments that cover both the capital and interest. This gradually reduces the outstanding loan amount until it is fully paid off.

    Interest-only mortgages: With these, you only pay the interest on the loan each month, not the capital. This means lower monthly payments, but the outstanding loan amount remains the same. You’ll need to have a plan to repay the capital at the end of the term, such as selling the property or remortgaging.

  • How much does a mortgage advisor charge?
