How does a let-to-buy mortgage work?

With more London homeowners keen to keep their property in the capital as an investment, applications for let to buy mortgages are on the increase.

A let to buy mortgage, simply lets you take out the equity in your current property, rent it out, and use the cash lump sum to purchase a new home. A regular residential mortgage is needed to purchase the new property too, meaning you’ll have two mortgage applications running along at the same time.

You will need to provide evidence of the potential rental income you could earn and this will be stress-tested to make sure it meets the affordability requirements for a let to buy mortgage.

This type of mortgage is ideal if you’ve found your next property but have been unable to, or don’t want to, sell your current home. And, of course, you can earn a tidy rental income too and not have to pay estate agent fees or get stuck in a chain.


At Oportfolio, we love inspiring people and helping you to achieve your dreams - buying your own home, making the most of your existing finances, or investing in other properties.
