Why not purchase a property to let out?
Do you want a Buy to Let mortgage?
If you do, then First Class Mortgage Advice will be able to help. It can be difficult finding a BUY TO LET mortgage, especially if this is your first time as a landlord.
What is a Buy To Let mortgage?
A Buy To Let mortgage is for those who wish to buy a property for the sole purpose of renting out its units. Typically, Buy To Let mortgages cost more than those for single-family properties. Interest tends to be higher and the minimum deposit for a Buy To Let mortgage is usually approximately 25% of the total cost of the property, although experienced landlords can raise a mortgage with only a 20% deposit.
On the positive side, Buy To Let mortgages offer the opportunity to earn money by becoming a property investor and building up a property portfolio. It’s a very different ball game to acquiring a mortgage if it’s your first time buying, or something like a remortgage.
Investing in rental property can be costly. Appliances break. Utilities need to be serviced. In addition, the brutality of particularly careless renters can devastate a property. Because of this, only those who can afford the leap should accept a Buy To Let mortgage.
Who qualifies for a Buy To Let mortgage?
It can be difficult to find a Buy To Let mortgage, especially for first-time landlords. Unless you already own your own home, lenders may be unwilling to give you a chance.
In addition, anyone applying for a Buy To Let mortgage must have good credit. Due to the risky nature of investing, debts must be minimal.
