Whilst it is unusual for a first time buyer/first time landlord scenario to occur, 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.Apply Now
Can a first time buyer purchase a buy to let?
The simple answer is yes, however, most lenders will want an applicant that currently owns a property over someone who has no experience in the field.
Can I live in my buy to let?
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.
What is the criteria for a buy to let mortgage?
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.
Can I have 2 mortgages?
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.
Can I use the equity in my house for a buy to let deposit?
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%.
