A buy to let, or buy to rent mortgage is for a landlord who wants to buy a property to rent out.

BTL mortgages are most commonly interest only mortgages, but we offer both capital and interest and interest only mortgage types for buy to let.
With an interest only mortgage, you only pay off the interest on a monthly basis throughout the term of your mortgage, however at the end of your term you are required to pay off the capital debt (the outstanding mortgage amount) in full. With a capital and interest mortgage, you pay off both the capital debt and the interest on a monthly basis.

You will need a deposit of at least 25% to be eligible for a buy to let mortgage or, if you’re looking to buy a new build flat or house, you’ll need a minimum deposit of 35%.
