Buy to Let Mortgage Advice in Leicester

During our time working in the industry as a mortgage broker in Leicester, we worked alongside a large amount of landlords, helping a vast majority of them to secure mortgages for the properties they are looking to invest in.


Whether you’re looking to obtain a mortgage for a standard buy to let, for a holiday home let, or for a HMO property, our dedicated team of mortgage advisors in Leicester will be on hand to take a look at your circumstances and see what mortgage deal is best suited for you.



Here are a selection of the common buy to let mortgage scenarios we often come across:

Residential Buy to Let Leicester

The buy to let option that we come across most frequently is a standard residential buy to let. This type of mortgage is basically what the name suggests, allowing you to obtain a mortgage for a purchase on a residential property, the sort that you would rent out rather than live in yourself.


We find that most buy to let borrowers will probably take out their mortgage as interest-only, as this means they will have lower monthly payments because they are only paying the interest each month. The monthly payments are usually funded through your monthly rental fees to the tenant. You’ll need to pay off the capital in full once your term is finished.

House of Multiple Occupancy (HMOs)

A house in multiple occupancy is a term used when speaking of residential properties that are occupied by multiple tenants and have common shared areas. Student housing is a prime example of this.


Depending on the size of your HMO is, you may have to obtain a license from your local authority. We definitely would recommend speaking to the local authority ahead of the process so that you are well informed of the legal side of this.


HMOs are classified as a very specialist buy to let investment and you’ll find that a lot of lenders won’t have any products available for them. That being said, if you’re looking to take out a mortgage on a HMO property, we do know of a few lenders that are willing to work with them.


Taking on a HMO property tends to bring in higher yields than you would get from a regular buy to let property investment, though you absolutely be mindful of other costs, such as license fees from the local authority and having to maintain the state of the property on a more regular basis.

Buy to Let through a Limited Company

More often now do we see landlords looking at the paths available to them for purchasing their investment properties by means of a limited company SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle). This occurs more frequently when a landlord has a much larger portfolio of properties and is looking to purchase more.


As a standard rule to follow, you will probably be paying a higher interest rate when taking out a mortgage through your Ltd. Company and you won’t have access to as many options when it comes to choosing a lender that is willing to work with this kind of mortgage.


That being said, the costs involved in doing it this way can be counterbalanced and even possibly outweighed by the potential tax savings. We would always recommend speaking in-depth with an experienced tax advisor to see if this is the right route for you.

Holiday Lets Leicester

Holiday let mortgages are used for landlords, new and existing alike, who are going to be purchasing a property that will have a lot of regular short term tenants over time.


A holiday let is classed as a specialist investment type, so please be aware that not all lenders will have products available to you if that’s the route you’re taking. On a more positive note though, our dedicated mortgage advisors in Leicester also have lots of experience of working with holiday let lending criteria, so we will be able to run through your options with you.


In this section we have taken a look at the most common buy to let investment scenarios that we have encountered in Leicester.


If your situation doesn’t quite match up with something that has been said above, then please feel free to get in touch or book yourself in for a free mortgage appointment with one of our dedicated mortgage advisors in Leicester.


Using our in-depth buy to let mortgage experience of situations we’ve worked on in the past, we will hopefully be able to help you achieve mortgage success. We look forward to working with you on your mortgage.

Common mortgage

The minimum required deposit for a buy to let mortgage in Leicester is typically around25% of the property value. This number, however, can vary between 20%-40%.

Your free mortgage consultation in Leicester will last for about one hour. Your advisor will then recommend a mortgage for you and you can decide whether or not you wish to go ahead with it.

As your Mortgage Broker in Leicester, we will carry out a Fact Find to determine your needs prior to recommending a mortgage that is the most appropriate. A credit check is then required for an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

We recommend that you obtain an Agreement in Principle ahead of viewing properties in Leicester, to avoid any potential disappointment. At the very latest we believe you should obtain one prior to making an offer to help with your bargaining position

An Agreement in Principle will usually last for between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can always be refreshed with the assistance of your mortgage advisor.

You may possibly be able to get a second mortgage on your home for debt consolidation or Home Improvements. The usage of a second mortgages extends to using it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let in Leicester.

If you have had problems with your credit, you can still get a mortgage, however, you may need to put down a higher deposit than usual, often 15% of the purchase price.

You are able to get a mortgage once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts. Most Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount you can borrow, whereas others go off your net profit.

To prove your income amount, it’s usually the latest three payslips for an employee and the latest 2 years’ accounts for self-employed. On top of this, you will need to produce proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements.

Our free consultation will usually lasts up to an hour or so. Your mortgage advisor can turn around an agreement in principle within 24 hours of this consultation and a formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average in Leicester.
