The typical affordability calculation rate used by the lenders is 5.5%. However, if this does not give the required outcome, there are some options. For example, some lenders will use the rate you are taking if it is fixed for 5 years or more. Use our BTL mortgage search for rates or contact a Connect Adviser.
The lender will need a margin to cover your anticipated costs. If you are unsure, use 125% if you are a basic rate taxpayer or buying via a company, and 145% if you are a higher rate taxpayer. Contact a Connect BTL Adviser for assistance.
Calculate the amount you may borrow, the amount rent you may charge and the amount of coverage.
