How much deposit will I need for my Consumer BTL Buy to Let Mortgage?

For a Consumer Buy To Let Mortgage, you will generally need a 25% deposit a deposit at this rate will give you a loan to value (LTV) of 75% thus opening up most lenders to you subject to income. If you would like to put down a smaller deposit on a consumer buy to let mortgage you will be less likely to obtain a mortgage or be saddled with subprime lenders who generally have much higher interest rates. In terms of the deposit being put down it is like residential mortgages the larger the deposit that you can afford, the better the interest rate will be applicable to you.

How is borrowing worked out for Consumer Buy To Let Mortgages?

With consumer buy to let mortgages it is worth noting that lenders view buy to let mortgages as self-financing properties.

It is also worth noting that while most lenders do view consumer buy to let mortgages as self-financing there is usually a minimum income requirement of £25,000 however there are a small amount of lenders that do allow no minimum income requirement.

Are deals different for First Time Landlord Buy To Let Mortgages than that to Residential Mortgages?

Deals for First Time Landlord Buy To Let Mortgages can vary from the residential mortgages you may have.

Fixed Rate Consumer Buy to Let Mortgage Deals

Where the consumer buy to let mortgage lender will fix an interest rate for a certain amount of time such as 2 years, the fixed rate deals are the most popular as they give you ‘peace of mind’ for the length that your mortgage payments have been fixed for as you know your mortgage payments will not change for that period of time. After your fixed period ends you will be placed on the lender’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR) which is usually a higher interest rate.

Consumer Buy to Let Mortgage Tracker Products

Tracker deals are some of the lowest rates available. This rate tracks the Bank of England (BoE) base rate which now is at an all-time low of 0.25% plus a percentage which is set by the lender that you decide to use. An example of a tracker rate would be the BoE base rate of 0.25% plus another 3% giving you a rate of 3.25%.

There are also other variable rates available such as discounted or capped mortgages which give either give a discount on the standard variable rate or cap the standard variable rate at a certain amount. These rates again are only for a certain length of time and then you will be reverted back to the lenders Standard Variable rate.

With all these rates you should be aware that consumer buy to let mortgages will have higher interest rates than residential mortgages.

Can I Remortgage my Consumer Buy to Let Mortgage?

There are a number of reasons to remortgage your First Time Landlord BTL mortgage as you may be languishing on the lender’s standard variable rate thus by remortgaging you will most likely obtain a better rate and your monthly payment will go down. You may also want to release funds from your Consumer Buy To Let property and a re-mortgage will aid you in that process. You may also want to move to another lender which has certain attributes that your current lender does not have such as making overpayments on your mortgage.

There are many BTL mortgage deals out there on the market, and here at mortgage brokers, we will aim to ensure that you get the best deal possible for your certain needs and we will endeavour to make the process as simple as possible for you to find the right mortgage.
