Getting a buy to let mortgage
While you may be familiar with residential mortgages, if you have never had a buy to let mortgage before there are a few key differences from other home finance you may have had previously.
Deposit – While home buyer mortgages can commonly be secured with relatively small deposits, buy to let lenders tend to require borrowers to be able to put down a deposit of at least 25%. However, there are products available for lower deposits. As with all types of finance, the larger the deposit you can afford to put down the cheaper your mortgage repayments will be.
Affordability – Unlike homebuyer mortgages where the affordability is usually based upon a multiple of your annual income, buy to let lenders normally base affordability on the rental valuation of the property. As a general rule, lenders require the rental yield to be at least 145% of what your monthly mortgage payment would be.
While affordability is calculated on the rental potential of the property, lenders may still have a requirement for the minimum income and also require applicants to already be homeowners.
From 2017, lenders will implement a strict income stress test to make sure all the landlords they provide buy to let mortgages to can afford the monthly repayments. In order to identify suitable applicants for their buy to let mortgages, during the application process, lenders will analyse landlords' income with more scrutiny than before.
To satisfy the lenders' income stress test, landlords will need to show that they can afford mortgage payments in the event the interest rate increases to 5.5%.
For landlords with multiple properties, lenders will review a landlord's entire property portfolio to make sure every property is profitable. If a lender finds that one or more of a landlord's properties are not profitable, then a buy to let mortgage will not be provided. It should be noted that landlords can no longer spread equity across their portfolio to account for a property that does not provide positive returns.
They may also stipulate the minimum age that an applicant can be, as well as the maximum age that an applicant can be by the end of the mortgage term.
These stipulations can vary considerably between providers, so it is worth shopping around to try and find a product that fits your circumstances.
