buy to let mortgages

Mortgages for professional landlords used to mean lending to clients that derive their main source of income from property. More recently a professional landlord has been defined a person owning 4 or more properties either in a personal name or via a limited company.

One of the main implications of being a professional landlord is that lenders now require a considerably greater amount of paperwork. The extra due diligence required by buy to let lenders for mortgages for professional landlord includes; business plan, assets and liabilities statement, cash flow forecast and a detailed breakdown of your portfolio. All of which is rather time consuming but important to ensuring the lending is agreed.

Lending to professional landlords.

Lenders will assess your property portfolio looking at the overall loan to value as well as the debt service coverage ration (DSCR). Lenders need the rent to cover the mortgage payments typically by 140% at a notioanl rate of 5% although it varies from lender to lender.

The increased scrutiny and paperwork required has resulted in many more professional landlords turning to buy to let mortgage brokers to get their lending agreed.
