It is sometimes referred to as ‘buy-to-let’ or ‘BTL’, and is a kind of property investment in which the investor becomes a landlord and rents out the property for money. Before investing, there are a lot of factors to consider, as there’s no guarantee you will make money.
With a Buy to Let mortgage, the amount you can borrow is determined by the rental income the property is likely to generate, as opposed to your salary and outgoings with a residential mortgage. For most lenders, the rental income must equal at least 125% of the monthly mortgage payment (on an interest-only basis), or even up to 145%, depending on the lender’s requirements.
In short, yes. It’s a unique type of mortgage due to the fact that you won’t be a permanent resident, and so is assessed differently. A buy-to-let mortgage is assessed based on the rental income generated by the property, as opposed to a residential mortgage in which your income is an important factor.
To put it bluntly, the best mortgage for you is one that you can afford. There are many types of mortgages for buy to let buyers, different mortgage repayment options and 1000s of mortgage rates on the market. Your mortgage advisor will be able to source your mortgage based on estimated rental income, deposit and loan to value to find the the right mortgage offer for you.
