When you are reaching the end of your current mortgage deal on your buy to let property, you'll need to start thinking about finding a suitable remortgage. A buy to let remortgage is a mortgage with a new lender, taken out when your existing deal ends. Some may choose to release equity in order to cover the costs of buying a new buy to let property. Whereas with a residential mortgage, the equity in your property depends on its value and the remaining mortgage balance, with a buy to let property, it will be slightly different. Most buy to let properties will come under an interest only mortgage. In this case, your equity depends on how much deposit you have put down and if the value of the property has gone up. Additionally, landlords may instead choose to use their additional funds released from their buy to let remortgage, in order to cover the costs of any property renovations. This may add value to the property. Other landlords may take out a buy to let remortgage on a property in their portfolio, in order to access a better deal with lower interest rates. This can potentially save you money on your monthly repayments. The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate some types of buy to let or commercial mortgages.Get Started
Generally speaking, homeowners and landlords alike, tend to remortgage about 6 months before the end of their mortgage deal. This gives them plenty of time to get the process sorted, ahead of their deal ending. It also helps you to avoid an early repayment charge (ERC). There are instances wherein a landlord may wish to accept early repayment charges and break their contract, if perhaps there was a property they would like to release equity to add to their portfolio. Usually, to achieve this, you will have had to have owned your property for at least 6 months before you are able to take out a buy to let remortgage on it. If you have carried out a renovation project on a buy to let property then you can remortgage against its improved value.

In the case of most lenders, you will have to abide by the 6 month mortgage rule. The reason this is in place is to reduce the risk for the lender in question.

When it comes to taking out a buy to let mortgage, some landlords opt for a repayment mortgage over an interest only mortgage so as to pay capital and build equity in the property.
