Below are some common questions we are asked regarding buy to let properties.
What makes a good buy to let property?
The most important consideration when purchasing a buy to let is the yield (the rate of return you can expect to receive on your investment expressed as a percentage). To ensure maximum yield a balance must be struck between the potential rental income with the maintenance and insurance costs associated with the property. For example, a buy to let in a village may net you quiet, long term tenants who respect your property; however, if they leave, it can be hard to replace them. On the other hand, student flats are always easy to rent out but you risk having increased maintenance and legal costs associated with property damage and having to evict people for anti-social behaviour.
Before entering the buy to let market, take the time to extensively research your options and find the best type of property for your stage of life and resources.
Can I get a mortgage to purchase a buy to let?
Due to low interest rates, the mortgage market is extremely competitive. To secure a buy to let mortgage you will normally require a bigger deposit, around 20% of the purchase price. Interest rates are often higher on buy to let properties, so it is important to shop around for a good rate.
