If you are looking to buy a property with the intention of letting it out, and you don't have the funds to buy it outright, you're going to need a Buy to Let mortgage. You can borrow a maximum of 80% of the value of the property you are looking to buy. Therefore, if you are buying for £250,000, you can raise £200,000 with a Buy to Let mortgage and your deposit would be £50,000.
Buy to Let mortgage lenders regulate how much they are prepared to lend by using rental affordability calculators. If you are a lower rate tax payer the amount of monthly rental income, the above property would need to achieve, would be £1,000. If you are a higher rate tax payer the rental income would need to be £1,200. This is due to the changes in mortgage interest tax relief from residential property income.
The vast majority of Buy to Let mortgages will require you to have tenants in the property on a 6-month Assured Tenancy Agreement. It is your responsibility to ensure that the rents are paid and any shortfalls, or non payments, are your responsibility.
