About Buy to Let Mortgages
UK investment mortgages have been designed specifically to help finance the purchase of a property you wish to let out, rather than live in yourself.
Buy-to-let mortgages are assessed on the rental income the property can produce instead of how much personal income you have. A lender will typically expect the rental income to be at least 25% more than the monthly mortgage payment on an interest only basis for it to pass the affordability test although this can vary from lender to lender.
Some lenders will also expect that a buy-to-let purchaser has a minimum level of personal income as a safety net in case there are rental voids. It is wise to consider setting aside some savings and/or take out insurance that can help you meet unforeseen problems and protect your investment.
Buy to let lending is high on many lenders agenda and there are a variety of landlord mortgage products available to suit most circumstances with more product launches and criteria

The Accidental Landlord
In today’s society, many of us become landlords ‘accidently’. This can happen due to relationship breakdowns and the joint home needing to be let while finances are resolved or it can happen because we are keen to move more quickly than we are able to sell our existing property.
Whatever the reason for keeping your existing home and letting it out, Connect Mortgage Experts can help you explore letting options from your existing lender or refinance to a buy to let lender. We can then help you find the most suitable lender for your new home, one who will be prepared to consider your application even though you do not plan to sell your existing property.
