If you are planning to buy a property to rent out then you will need a buy to let mortgage. You cannot take out a standard residential loan.

As many existing landlords already know, this market has shrunk considerably over the last few years. However, there are still a lot of mortgages available.

It pays to shop around for a mortgage. Speak to a mortgage broker to find out the best deals for your circumstances.

A buy to let mortgage will have a higher interest rate than a standard home loan.  You will also have to put down a larger deposit.  This is typically a minimum of 25% up to around 40% for the best deals.

Plan Your Finances

Mortgage companies often look at affordability when making their decisions about whether or not to grant a mortgage. They will typically examine your income, as well as look at your existing loans and outgoing payments. Ifyou can reduce expensesand remove debts then you may be better placed to get a mortgage in the first place as well as to subsequently meet your mortgage payments. You will need to plan carefully in order to do this of course.

Also consider extending the period of your mortgage or looking into joint mortgages as a way of getting onto the property ladder by buying with other people. Check out what products are available to you that meet your requirements and your budget.

There is plenty that you can do to put yourself in a better position when looking for a mortgage, provided you simply plan and prepare.

Nationwide announces interest rate cut

Nationwide have announced this week that they have cut rates on some fixed rate mortgages by up to 0.50% and some tracker rates by up to 0.70% whilst other lenders have been busy amending their own product ranges. This amount of activity from so many lenders has many believing an increase in the Bank of England base rate is more likely than at any time since the rate was dropped to its previous all-time low of 0.50%. This of course adds more fuel to the fire that an increase in interest rates is due this week.An upwards move to the interest rate on Thursday would draw to a close the longest period in living memory without an interest rate rise, with the last in July 2007, when rates increased to 5.75%.By announcing early Nationwide could be looking to capitalise on homeowners who may be worried about what a potential rise...

Mortgage Rules Nightmare!

We are investigating adding to our current residential mortgage to possibly fund a house move. This image from the Telegraph is exactly what I looked like last week after a conversation with our bank. When I booked the phone appointment with one of their mortgage advisors they said they would provide me with a list of documentation they would require before the call. They duly provided a list via email. As we are both self employed this was an ardous task. I had to scan into their online system 3 years of accounts, tax returns - business and personal, information from the HMRC, 3 months of bank statements and much more.   This probably took 2 to 3 hours to obtain all the information and to upload it all. We were told the call may take 2 hours!!  The advisor then proceeded to ask us very detailed questions about income, profits...
