Buy to Let Mortgages in Glasgow and Lanarkshire
Are you buying property to rent out to tenants? We can source the perfect deal on a Buy to Let Mortgage for you.

A ‘buy to let’ mortgage is a mortgage that is used as a means of buying a property with the specific intention of letting that property out to tenants.

You should be aware that, as of April 2016, new tax rules have come into place for owners of additional properties. 
In determining how much a lender will be prepared to lend, this works in a different way from a residential mortgage.

Rather than assess your employment history, income, outgoings etc, the lender will apply a ‘Rent to Interest’ calculation, however although not assessed for affordability, some lenders may require you to have a minimum £25,000 income per annum.

Most lenders will lend to a First Time Landlord so long as you have, or have had, a residential mortgage.

The amount of rent you receive from your tenant must be enough to cover more than a calculated amount of mortgage. Typically the lender would expect to see rent in the region of 125% or 130% of the calculated amount of monthly mortgage payment.

You will require a deposit as with any other mortgage. Typically, this would be 25% of the Purchase Price, however, some lenders are now considering a 20% deposit for an experienced landlord, but this will be reflected in the monthly payment as the interest rate would normally be higher.

Buy to Let mortgages can be offered either on an Interest Only basis or on a Capital Repayment basis. This is normally determined by what the Landlord is trying to achieve.

For example, if you are looking for a regular income, then Interest Only would suit better as you would have less to pay out on the mortgage each month from the rent.

If, however you were investing for retirement, you may want to consider a Repayment Mortgage and this would reduce the amount outstanding over time.
