All Circumstances Considered including Buy-to-let for those with adverse or bad credit.
Buy to let or BTL mortgages are for those who aren’t living in the property as their primary residence but are renting it out to provide investment income.
There are only a limited number of lenders operating in this sector & those that do will typically lend to a maximum of 80% of the property value (80% LTV) with the remainder coming from the borrower in the form of their deposit.
So long as the potential rental income exceeds the mortgage payment by 25% (e.g. £500pcm rental on a property with a £400 mortgage repayment) then the lenders generally regard it as self-funding rather than basing the assessment on client income & expenditure. Although lenders always reserve the right ultimately to take a closer look where perhaps they may feel clients are over committed.
Repayment terms can be on a repayment or interest only basis and as ever, we work hard to match your application with the best possible rate available.

A buy to let mortgage is a loan secured against a property rented out to tenants. This doesn’t mean lodgers in your own home but applies to properties not lived in by the owner.
For many people, a Buy-To-Let property portfolio is an attractive investment opportunity if they have the initial finance to cover deposits.
With the popularity of renting a home rather than buying, appealing to more & more people, buy to let Mortgages have become popular in recent years.
Many young people can’t step onto the property ladder as easily as before. Perhaps they need flexibility in their work or more likely can’t fund the initial deposit required for their own purchase.
Buy to let Mortgages are ideal for landlords who need to finance their investment opportunity and take advantage of the increasing rental market.
The affordability of a buy to let mortgage depends on various factors. Firstly the deposit is generally 20% minimum but a larger deposit can attract better interest rates. The property’s likely rental income needs to be assessed & confirmed by a surveyor. A prospective buy to let landlord needs to also assess the local marketplace & position the property accordingly. The type of property suitable for student accommodation is vastly different in location & fixtures than an executive home-from-home for example.
The process can take three to four weeks on average, depending on the borrower and the property in question. All applications can be fast tracked. The lender will also charge a fee on buy to let mortgages.
Existing landlords who already have properties on a buy to let can remortgage these to raise additional capital providing that there is sufficient equity to do so.
