Buy To Let Mortgage
Apart from the purpose of the mortgage, a buy to let mortgage, which can also be called an investment mortgage, differs from a standard residential mortgage because a lender will take into consideration the rent you will earn from the property as the primary source of income for affordability purposes.
When considering a buy to let mortgage application, a lender will typically look for a prospective rental income of 125% of the monthly interest payment of the loan, but may also require the landlord to have a minimum personal income e.g. £25,000 per annum.
Because demand in the rental sector is high, an investment property could be an ideal venture for the right person. However, finding the right buy to let mortgage has recently become more complex.

There is no guarantee that it will be possible to arrange continuous letting of the property, nor that rental income will be sufficient to meet the cost of the mortgage.
You may have to pay an early repayment charge to your existing lender if you remortgage.
Most buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
