Am I Eligible for a Buy to Let Mortgage?
Not all Buy to Let Mortgages are regulated by The Financial Conduct Authority.
There are some eligibility criteria specific to buy-to-let mortgages. For instance, you need to already own a property either outright or with a mortgage in order to qualify. You will also need to earn over £25,000 a year.
Our team of buy to let mortgage advisors can help determine whether you are eligible and how much you can comfortably afford. We’ll guide you through the process and help you get the best rate for your circumstances.
There are also specific terms and conditions which we can discuss with you. Contact us today to learn more.
The short answer to this is no. A buy-to-let mortgage is exclusively designed for landlords who let out the property to tenants. In most cases it will state in your contract that the property cannot be used as your primary residence.
Should you need to move into the property you will need to notify your mortgage lender of your change in circumstances and they may require you to change the mortgage to a residential one.
Failure to declare that you have moved in could result in you having to repay your mortgage.
Yes – as with any mortgage, if you do not keep up on repayments your property could be repossessed.
Any income you make from renting buy-to-let property should be declared on your Self Assessment tax return as it is liable for income tax. However, you will be able to offset your income by filling out any related expenses such as landlord agent fees.
No – they are not.
Our mortgage advice is free of charge. If you decide to choose a mortgage through us, there may be an arrangement fee. This will depend on your circumstances but typically costs £595.
