Buy to Let finance

Cash, Capital and Interest mortgage, or interest only loan?

This depends on a number of factors.

The principal factor is the amount of cash you have available. While you’re likely to earn around 1% on your cash in a bank account, you may prefer to earn much more from using all of it to pay for a rental property as your return on your capital employed is likely to be considerably more.

Let to Buy not Buy to Let!


Let to Buy is a moving option that many people are not even aware of or confuse with Buy to Let!

This type of scheme allows you to buy a new home and let your old one out, making you a chain free buyer.

As long as the rental income on your existing property will easily pay your existing mortgage, lenders who offer this type of loan will usually offer you a new mortgage for the new property based on the normal income multiples, even though you already have an existing property. This means that you end up with two mortgages at normal owner-occupier rates, avoiding  more expensive buy-to-let mortgages.

For more info on this call Phillip on 01480 433933.
