Create extra income by becoming a landlord

A buy to let property can be a fantastic investment. 

You can supplement your income by receiving monthly rent from your tenant. Even better, you will benefit from any increase in the property’s value. By making small, smart home improvements, you can grow your equity which can be released later or received if you decide to sell.

How we can help

Purchasing your first buy to let property should be a rewarding, exciting experience. We make it our mission to provide a smooth, enjoyable process.

As you can imagine, the requirements are a little different to a residential mortgage. We always look at the bigger picture, giving you the best type of mortgage available and making sure your investment is as lucrative as possible.

If you have any current rental properties, our advisors can also assess these to make sure they are reaching their maximum performance and that they’re on the most suitable mortgage products.

Let to buy

On the other hand, you may be looking to rent out your current home to purchase a new one. By using Let to Buy, you will replace your residential mortgage with a Buy to Let and secure a new residential mortgage on your new home.

If you need to release equity from your property in order to fund your new residential purchase or the deposit, then that’s certainly something we will assist with.

Choosing this route will allow you to retain an investment property alongside buying your new home. It’s a win, win situation.
