Buy to Let Finance FAQs
How Much Can I Borrow?
The overall amount that can be borrowed is entirely based on the achievable rental income or a combination of the rental income & personal disposable income.

How Much Will Be The Interest?
Interest Rates typically begin from 2.5%. This will vary between lenders provisional to the loan amount and the length of the term.
Different lenders will have their own eligibility checks. They will typically check the borrowers:
- Ability to pay the deposit and source of funds
- Income (2 year’s SA302) credit and assets
- Last 3 months’ personal and /or business bank statements as appropriate to verify rental income on remortgage cases
- Proof of ID (certified copy of passport or driving license)
- Proof of residency (utility bill or bank statement)
- Lease copy (AST or commercial lease)
What Sort of Properties can be Purchased or Re-Financed with BTL Mortgages?
