What you need to know…

How does a buy to let mortgage work?

A buy to let mortgage is a loan secured against a property which you own and intend to rent out to a tenant. The big difference between a residential mortgage and a buy to let mortgage is that that amount you can borrow is assessed mainly using the rental income from the property being mortgaged rather than your own income.

To give you an idea of what you could borrow try out our ‘How much can I borrow?’ calculator. As a landlord you may be able to have multiple mortgages and properties.

How much deposit do I need?

You may need as little as 15% for the deposit however most lenders require a 25% deposit and products with less than a 25% deposit are less attractive. Your deposit amount is frequently dictated by the rental income of the property.

Property prices are typically higher in the South East and, while rents are higher, it is also common that deposits need to be 30%+ due to lenders’ rental calculations. Most of our advisers have been landlords for many years and have the knowledge to potentially unlock better deals and lower deposits for you.

Chatting with an existing landlord and mortgage expert will be beneficial for you to know how much you will need for the deposit and other associated costs. You may be able to raise a deposit for a buy to let by remortgaging and raising monies from your own home or other buy to let investments.

How much could I borrow on a buy to let mortgage?

Unlike a residential mortgage, where the amount you can borrow is based on your salary and your outgoings, a buy to let mortgage is assessed on the rental income that the property is likely to generate. Lenders will typically need the rental income to be at least 125% of the monthly mortgage payments (on an interest only basis) which means that if your mortgage will cost £800 a month, the rent will need to be at least £1,000 a month.

Most lenders will still also require you to be earning an income yourself. To give you an idea of how much you can borrow try our calculator.

Do you pay Stamp Duty Land Tax on a buy to let property?

Yes. Stamp duty (or Stamp Duty Land Tax [SDLT] to give it its full name) is payable when purchasing a buy to let property. The amount varies depending on the price of the property.

The current rates of stamp duty from 1st April 2016 for buy to let properties are:


  • 3% of the balance on the first £125,000
  • then, 5% of the balance on the portion up to £250,000
  • then, 8% of the balance on the portion up to £925,000
  • then, 13% of the balance on the portion up to £1.5 million
  • then, 15% of the balance on everything over that

Anyone buying a second property that isn’t their main residence will be charged these new rates. This will also include holiday lets and buying a property for children if the parents leave their name on the title deeds. Stamp duty must be paid within 30 days of completion of the property purchase although this is usually paid by the solicitor on completion. The amount of Stamp Duty paid is deductible from any capital gains you might make when the property is sold.
