Most buy to let lenders want new customers to be existing homeowners but it is possible in some circumstances to obtain a first time buyer buy to let mortgage. You will need to have a good income in order to qualify for one of these, usually £25,000pa or more and also have a 25% deposit. The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate some types of buy to let or commercial mortgages.Get Started
Whilst it is unusual to encounter buy to let first time buyer scenarios, sometimes it can where the applicant is young and wants to continue living in the family home or if they live with a partner but they are not named on their mortgage. Through our experience being a mortgage broker, we have dealt with various first time buyer buy to let scenarios.Apply Now
The simple answer is yes, you can become a buy to let first time buyer, however, most lenders will want an applicant that currently owns a property over someone who has no experience in the field.
You cannot live in your buy to let property. These mortgages are designed for landlords who will rent them out to tenants. You will need a standard residential mortgage for a home if you want to live in the property.
To get a mortgage on an investment property, you will generally need a deposit of at least 25%. The amount you can borrow is usually calculated on the rental income that the property is likely to generate. There are some lenders who do not focus on your personal income when it comes to taking out a buy to let mortgage, whereas others need you to be earning £25,000 pa or more.
Yes, you can, however you will need to provide sufficient evidence that you will have the ability to meet both sets of monthly mortgage payments from either your personal earned income or rental income.
If you have sufficient equity in your house and can release this equity, you are able to use this via a remortgage for a deposit on a buy to let property. Remember, a buy to let deposit is typically 20%-40%.
