Looking for a new mortgage?

Top slicing

If you have a Buy to Let property and are struggling to cover the repayments with the rental income alone, top slicing could be the answer. Instead of your affordability being based on rental yield alone, a lender will use your personal income as a ‘top-up’.

Get started

Standard Buy to Let

A traditional Buy to Let mortgage, where you'll purchase a new investment property to let out to tenants. Choose between an interest-only or repayment set up.

Family Buy to Let

Take out a mortgage on a property to rent out to family members like your children, parents or grandparents. With this type of Buy to Let, you can live in the property alongside your loved one.

Let to Buy

Buy a new home to live in, then switch the residential mortgage on your current home to a Buy to Let to let it out to tenants. Ideal for those who are starting out as a landlord, or want to move to a new property but keep their old home.
