Buy a property to rent out with a buy to let mortgage
NatWest mortgages are available to over 18s. Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
What are buy to let mortgages?
A Buy to let, or Buy to rent mortgage is for a landlord who wants to buy a property to rent out.
The application is similar to a residential mortgage application but with a few differences. These differences include the amount you could borrow and how much deposit you will need.

Steps to getting a buy to let mortgage
Work out if you're eligible and if you can afford it
The amount you can borrow is based on how much rent the property can generate versus the cost of the mortgage. As an indication, we require:
Your expected rental income to be at least 125% of the monthly interest payments
A minimum deposit of 25% (35% on a new build property)
The property to be worth at least £50,000
Your borrowing will be less than £3.5 million
Understand your responsibilities as a landlord
There's lots of requirements that you need adhere to when renting out a property. These including contracts, deposit protection and certificates for the gas and electric.
Find out what you could borrow
You can get an indication of how much you could borrow by getting an Agreement in Principle, without affecting your credit score.
If you're moving your mortgage to NatWest and looking to borrow more, you'll have to book an appointment with one of our mortgage advisors.
