Whilst assessing your buy to let mortgage application, some lenders will want to see that your income is at least £25,000 pa, whereas others will not focus on your personal income and advance your application once you have evidenced your deposit. The deposit that you will need to supply is usually between 25%-40% of the buy to let property price. This can differ depending on the size of your buy to let portfolio.

This is a very specialist topic and it may be best to get buy to let mortgage advice in Southampton.
