Many people left the buy to let market in 2008 and some limped on after realising that being a landlord is often quite demanding. There is still a place for buy to letters who can work and think strategically to build up a business. A buy to let property requires a specific mortgage and insurance to be able to rent it out to the public. A mortgage for rental property will typically have much higher interest rates than a residential mortgage. Banks are interested in lending to serious investors who can have a higher per cent of the value of the property. One aspect of a buy to let mortgage that makes life easier for the purchaser is that they are often interest-only. This means that each month you pay the interest on the mortgage and not the loan capital, then at the end of the agreement the capital can be paid back by selling the property. Any profits can be retained by the seller, that is if there are profits. A poor purchase could leave you with negative equity.
When you are doing this the bank will see you as a business partner; One which they hope will be fit, healthy and alive towards the end of the agreement. The bank will want to see a plan, so if you are thinking about getting into the letting business you will need to come up with a viable plan. You will need to know who you are targeting and where you are looking to buy.
