A buy to let mortgage (or BTL) is essentially a mortgage for landlords. These types of mortgages can be used to help individuals purchase a property with the intent of renting it out.
The rules that surround BTL mortgages are fairly similar to the standard type of residential mortgage, however there are some significant differences between the two. This is because buy to let mortgages are taken out specifically for the purpose of the owner to rent out the property, whereas the more standard residential mortgage is used to help purchase the owner’s home.
Key Features of a Buy to Let Mortgage
Aside from their purpose, buy to let mortgages have a number of other key features that distinguish them from other types of mortgages. This includes, but is not exclusive to, the following features:
Buy to let mortgages deposit: The minimum deposit for BTL mortgages is often around 25% the value of the property, but can range between 20% to 40%.
Buy to let mortgages interest only: The majority of BTL mortgages will only require you to pay the interest per month. When the mortgage term comes to its end, you will be required to pay the full amount for the original loan.
Buy to let mortgages rates (interest): Interest rates for BTL mortgages are typically higher than regular mortgages.
Buy to let mortgages regulation: The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) does not regulate the majority of BTL lending, however, there can be exceptions to this.
Whilst the FCA may not regulate most of this type of lending, if, for example, the mortgage is considered a consumer buy to let, arranging, advising, administering and lending of such mortgages will be covered by the same laws governing residential mortgages, and will therefore be regulated by the UK’s financial watchdog.
Am I Eligible for a Buy to Let Mortgage?
As with any type of mortgage, for those wanting to apply for a buy to let mortgage, you will have to meet certain eligibility criteria. For those considering such a mortgage, it’s important to check that the following circumstances apply to your situation:
