Let to Buy Mortgages

Let to Buy mortgage advice

Let to Buy is process that helps you purchase a new home while keeping possession of your current property and letting it out. Let us help you in this journey.

Why choose a Let to Buy mortgage ?   

There are several reasons why you may want to consider a Let to Buy mortgage:

  • Capital appreciation. A Let to Buy mortgage allows you to keep your current home as a long-term investment and benefit from any future increase in its value.
  • You want to move in with your partner and you each own a property. In this case, you could both move into one of the properties and rent the other one out using a Let to Buy mortgage.
  • To speed up moving to a new house. You found your dream house and you don’t want to be tied up in a chain or wait for a buyer. You can remortgage your current property with a Let to Buy mortgage and potentially use the money for your deposit towards your new house.
  • You may want to have the option of being able to move back into your old property one day. Let to Buy is popular with those who are relocating for work and want to purchase a property in their new location, but don’t want to rule out moving back.

Whatever your circumstances may be, with a Let to Buy you can remortgage and then let out your existing home and use the rental income to cover the cost of the mortgage, allowing you to take out another mortgage on your new home.

What you need to consider:

Let to Buy mortgages can be more complex than standard residential mortgages or Buy to Let mortgages. This is because you need to apply for both a Let to Buy and residential mortgage and to ensure that they both complete on the same day ideally. This is where we can help!

Some things you need to know about Let to Buy mortgages: 

  • You’ll need to have a decent deposit or amount of equity in the house, with lenders usually requesting a loan to value (LTV) of 75%.
  • You will also need to show that the expected rental income is acceptable for the new lender as they will want to see you can account for rental voids and maintenance costs. It may be a good idea to speak to local letting agents to get an idea of the monthly rents for similar properties in the area.
  • Consider the implications of being a landlord such as insurance responsibilities, property maintenance but also tax and legal implications.
  • You will have to pay a stamp duty surcharge when you buy a second property so ensure this has been factored into your calculations.
