Many people left the buy to let market in 2008 and a few limped on, after realising that being a landlord is often quite demanding. There is still a place for people who want to have a buy to let property and can work and think strategically to build up a business. With a buy to let property, you can’t use a regular residential mortgage. You will have to switch it to a special buy to let mortgage.

A mortgage for rental property will typically have much higher interest rates than a residential mortgage. The banks are interested in lending to people who are serious who can put down a higher percentage of the property themselves. One aspect of a buy to let mortgage that can help the purchaser is that they are often interest only. This means that each monthly repayment covers just the interest on the property and not the loan capital. At the end of the agreement, the capital can be repaid by selling the property and the seller can retain any profits. This presumes, of course, that there are profits. A poor purchasing decision could leave you with negative equity.

When you go to the bank for a loan they will see you as a business partner and they will hope this business partner will be fit, healthy and alive towards the end of the agreement. The bank will expect a landlord to take on the bulk of the liability. This will mean you need you are going to need a good business plan.
