Landlords have had to contend with more and more restrictions over the last few years, and with recent increases in mortgage rates there are many who are struggling. If you're finding you can no longer afford your Buy to Let mortgage, you might be thinking of selling up. But there are options out there worth considering first.
One option is to remortgage your Buy to Let property and move over to a better interest rate or reduce your loan size by putting down a larger downpayment. If these aren't an option, you can also go for a top slicing mortgage. This is when your personal income is factored into affordability assessments when your rental income isn't sufficient to cover your mortgage repayments.
As an experienced mortgage broker, we can help you find all the ways you could make your Buy to Let mortgage more affordable.
All mortgages have risks and benefits. Here are some key things you should know before remortgaging your Buy to Let property.
Accomodate mortgage rate rises
When mortgage interest rates rise, moving to a new deal or top slicing could be a way to make the repayments on your Buy to Let mortgage more affordable.
Keep your Buy to Let property
By remortgaging your Buy to Let property to a top slicing mortgage or new Buy to Let deal, you could avoid having to sell your property and keep your property investment.
Limited lender options
Each lender has their own approach to top slicing and Buy to Let mortgages, and some have very strict criteria or may not offer them at all. This can make it difficult to find a lender who will approve your Buy to Let remortgage.
Some properties do not qualify
Some lenders will not accept a new build or HMO (house of multiple occupants) for a top slice mortgage. First time buyer landlords may also be not accepted by certain lenders.
