What is a Buy-to-Let Mortgage?
Buy-to-Let or Business-Related Mortgages are mainly for those who may wish to acquire property or land for themselves. This could be anything from warehouse space to residential housing. The majority of Buy-to-Let Mortgages are given on an interest-only basis. This means that for every month of the mortgage term you’ll only pay the interest on the loan, and none of the capital.
In an ever-evolving market, we see numerous clients investing in Buy-to-Let Mortgages. We can offer standard Buy-to-Let mortgages through to new builds, HMOs, multi-lets, large blocks and large mixed portfolios.

We work with you to review you’re your existing BTL mortgage prior to its conclusion and recommend the best products in order to prevent you from paying a higher variable rate.
