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 of typically £25,000.
As a first time buyer you should seek advice to see how much the bank is able to lend you. Each bank and building society has different levels of affordability and also has different rules when assessing your income and expenditure. The new MMR rules which came into effect in April 2014, which have been widely publicized in the recent media have caused banks to request far more information about your spending habits than they used to.
There are many reasons to think about remortgaging. Not only could remortgaging reduce your monthly outgoings, it could alternatively help you pay off your mortgage more quickly in one of two ways. You could either reduce your monthly payment by remortgaging to a lower rate, freeing up cash to make overpayments, or alternatively increase your monthly payment and take your mortgage over a shorter term.
Once you have an offer accepted on your new home, we can arrange for a local mortgage adviser to guide you through the buying process, from making an offer to completion and moving in. Our advisers can discuss your personal circumstances with you, including your income, outgoings, future plans and savings. From this we can recommend the most appropriate mortgage for you which will be specific to your circumstances. By using the latest sourcing technology we are able to search over 10,000 mortgage products to find you the best deal.
