Back in 2008 a lot of people left the buy to let market realising that being a landlord was often quite demanding. But there is still a place for serious people who want to take out a buy to let mortgage on properties. If you would like to invest in property and think strategically to build up a business, this page is for you.

With a buy to let property the finance is different to a normal residential home and will typically have a much higher interest rate than a residential mortgage, the loan to value percentage, is higher for a buy to let property. This shows that banks are interested in lending to serious investors who can have a higher percentage of the value of the property themselves. If you are looking to turn a residential property into a buy to let you will need to switch the mortgage over from a regular residential mortgage to a buy to let mortgage. There is one good aspect of the buy to let mortgage and it is that most of the time they are interest only. This means that the monthly repayments will just cover the interest on the property and not pay back the capital loan. When the agreement comes to an end you can sell the property to repay the lender and you can retain any profits made. This is why it is important to make a good investment decision so that you are able to make a bit of extra profit and not have negative equity.
