Repayment and Interest only rates for Buy to Let mortgages
Thinking of investing in the property market? Free Initial Buy to Let Mortgage Advice at The Mortgage Clinic
With savings interest rates so low many people are now looking to the Buy To Let market to make the most of their capital. The right investment could give you a gross return each year of 5-10% – well ahead of what any bank account could give.
One of the most important parts of making a Buy to Let venture successful is the choosing the correct mortgage advice. Like all property purchases, buying a property to let out carries risks. At The Mortgage Clinic we will help make you fully aware of the financial commitment you are making, and where the risks lie.
We DO NOT charge a fee for our initial mortgage advice!
A Buy to Let mortgage is different to a Residential mortgage, many lenders have different lending criteria which we will discuss during the planning consultation.
- A larger deposit will be required, typically 25%.
- Rental income must be enough to cover the mortgage interest payments and some costs. It is likely you will need a monthly rental amount of at least 125-145% of the mortgage payment.
- Fees on a Buy to Let mortgage can be higher than a Residential mortgage.
Before you even start viewing prospective properties come to see us at The Mortgage Clinic where we can guide you through the process during a Free Buy to Let Mortgage Planning Consultation.
