Back in 2008 a lot of people left the buy to let market and a few limped on after the realisation that being a landlord is quite demanding. Between a normal residential property and a rental one you have to get a different type of mortgage to allow you to let it out, the interest rates on a buy to let mortgage are typically higher than a residential mortgage and this means that banks are interested in lending to people but only if they are serious investors who can pay a higher percentage of the property themselves.
An aspect of the buy to let mortgage that can make it slightly easier for the purchaser is that the mortgage is usually interest only which means that you only have to pay for the interest on the property and not the capital loan. At the end of the agreement, the loan capital can be repaid by selling the property and the seller retaining any profits.
The bank will see you as a business partner and will hope that you are fit and healthy by the time the agreement comes to an end. This means that if you are going into the letting business, you need to make sure that you have a viable business plan. A great business plan will determine where and what you buy. You will also be responsible to the local authority as well as the bank, a rental property has to reach the basic levels of safety, hygiene and energy efficiency. It may be worth it to contact your council’s housing department for further advice on your legal requirements before you proceed.
