Buy To Let
Buy-to-let mortgages are for investment properties.
As with regular domestic home loans there are many products on the market ranging from special offer deals to fixed and variable rate loans. With a buy-to-let mortgage some lenders will only consider your rental income when offering a mortgage, while others will place more emphasis on your normal earnings, especially if you only have one or two rental properties.
We are here to help
More than any other type of mortgage you have to get the right buy to let mortgage if you are going to profit from your property.
Your expected rental income must exceed your mortgage repayments by a certain percentage. For example your mortgage lender may require a rental income of between 100% and 130% with the most common percentage being 125% at this time. Your lender will also want to establish whether the property you are buying is a good long term investment. Buy-to-let mortgages are subject to the usual status checks. Generally buy-to-let mortgages are available for between five and 45 years and for up to 80% of the property value or purchase price whichever the lower is.
When considering a buy-to-let it is also necessary to bear in mind any additional costs such as letting agent's commission, insurance premiums for building and contents cover and rental and legal expenses cover, the costs of keeping the property in a suitable condition for letting, service charges and ground rents if the property is leasehold.
Not all forms of mortgage are regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
We can even provide you a solicitor at very competitive rates.

Mortgage protection cover with critical illness

Accident, sickness and unemployment insurance
Since 1995 if you became ill or redundant the social security does not offer any help to you for the first 39 weeks.
This plan (MPPI) provides sufficient income on a monthly basis to cover your mortgage payments.
In many cases a claim cannot be made on redundancy cover until the policy has been in force for at least 90 days, likewise 30 days for sickness.
For the self-employed there are policies around where you can't make a claim for illness until you've been ill for 30 or 60 days (depending on the policy that you have), but if you are ill for longer than the deferral period, then benefits are back dated to day one.
As with all other types of insurance there is the (it won't happen to me) chance, however, it will happen to someone probably right now, the old saying of "prevention is better than having to cure" is of paramount importance as we are all wiser in retrospect.
