What Is a Buy To Let mortgage?
A buy to let mortgage is a loan used to secure a property which is then rented out for profit. The amount you can borrow is most often determined by the rental income you will receive from tenants (this is the rental calculation) and how much you can contribute to the purchase price (the deposit). Many lenders will also require proof of personal income separate from the rent received. Exact terms and requirements vary greatly from lender to lender. Additionaly the format of ownership i.e. personal name vs limited company ownership can also have a large impact on the interest charged and the loan achievable.
Its vitally important that the right ownership structure, lender and product is chosen to ensure the suitablity of the mortage and profitabilty of the investment. Purchasing a BTL property is a commercial decision and one driven by the desire to earn profit; care should be taken as any mistakes in this area could wipe out any gains.

Two new pieces of legislation have come into force on 1st October will affect thousands of HMO landlords* and could result in big fines for those who don’t comply.
