Buy-To-Let (BTL) – Points to note:

BTL mortgages differ from a standard residential mortgage because a lender will take into consideration the rent you will earn from the property as the primary source of income for affordability purposes.

In considering a BTL mortgage application, the lender will typically look for a prospective rental income of 125% of the monthly interest payment of the loan, but may also require the landlord to have a minimum personal income (e.g. £20,000 per annum). However, there are lenders who do not have a minimum income stipulation.

...the lender will typically look for a prospective rental income of 125% of the monthly interest payment of the loan...

BTL mortgages are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) unless the tenant is a member of the borrower’s family and 40% or more of the property is occupied by them.

For Regulated BTL (Family members as tenants) the loan affordbility is based on the applicants income as opposed to unregulated BTL which is based on the rental yield of the property.

There is no guarantee that it will be possible to arrange continuous letting of the property, nor that rental income will be sufficient to meet the cost of the mortgage.

You may have to pay an early repayment charge to your existing lender if you remortgage.

Loans can be arranged for BTL property conversion, for light and heavy refurbishment, on a residential or commercial basis.

Buy-To-Let (BTL) – Hints & Tips:

Ask the advice of a reputable management company regards local rental demand.

Thoroughly check potential rental returns (letting agents will be able to advice) before proceeding with a BTL purchase.

"Consider a BTL property as a medium to long-term investment."

Make sure your sums add up. Ensure that the rent will cover mortgage payments and other costs, even if you have void periods without tenants.

Never allow your own personal taste to influence your decisions. Ensure the property you choose matches the local need.

Do not use off-the-shelf tenancy agreements from stationery shops. Ensure your paperwork suits your circumstances.
