How are buy-to-let mortgages different to residential mortgages?
- Buy-to- let mortgages are for people wishing to invest in property.
- Getting a buy-to- let mortgage doesn’t depend on how much you earn, although you usually need to earn over £25,000 to get a buy-to- let mortgage.
- You usually need to own or have a mortgage on your own home to get a buy-to- let mortgage.
- There is usually an upper age limit of 70 to 75 for a buy-to- let mortgage. This means the mortgage must be repaid before you reach this age so you may not be able to borrow money over the age of 45.
- There is usually a minimum deposit of 25%.
- Most buy-to- let mortgages are interest-only. This means that for the term of the mortgage you repay interest only and the capital is paid at the end of the mortgage term. Fixed rate, tracker and standard variable rate mortgages are available.
- The monthly rental value of the property you want to buy is considered and should be at least 25–30% higher than the monthly mortgage repayment.
- There is no guarantee that it will be possible to arrange continuous letting of the property, nor
- that rental income will be sufficient to meet the cost of the mortgage.
- You must be able to pay the mortgage when there is no rental income on the property.
- Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) for buy-to- let properties is an extra 3% on top of the current SDL rate bands for properties above £40,000.
- If you make a profit when you sell your buy-to- let properties it is subject to capital gains tax.
- If the value of your buy-to- let property has fallen when you come to sell, you will have to make up the difference on the mortgage.
