Buy to let FAQs

For more information on making a buy to let investment, take a look at some of our frequently asked questions.

Can I use a regular mortgage to purchase a buy to let property?

A typical standard mortgage will prohibit you from letting out the property or require you to get permission from the lender before you do so.

If you let the property out without informing the lender you could be in breach of your mortgage terms and faced with immediate repayment of the mortgage.

Buy to let mortgages are available which are specifically designed for buy to let investments. However, these will come with rigorous conditions that you will need to comply with.

As with any mortgage, we would recommend that you speak to a trusted adviser about the terms of a mortgage.

Will I need to alter the property for letting?

Legally, you will be faced with a number of legal obligations in relation to the condition of the property. This includes:

  • gas appliances
  • electrical equipment
  • furniture and furnishings
  • energy information
  • repairs and general condition

At Residential Matters, our specialist solicitors will provide advice on conditions you will need to meet in order to ensure the property is fit for purpose.

What checks should a make on prospective tenants?

Under the new right to rent rules, you are legally obligated to check a new tenant’s immigration status to ensure they are legally allowed to rent a property in England (this does not apply in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland).

If you are found to be letting a property to someone not allowed to live in England you may face a fine of up to £1,000.

You can also ask a tenant to provide references from their previous landlord or employer as well as asking for a bank reference and carrying out a credit check.

What repairs will I be required to make on the property?

You are legally required to maintain the property and to ensure that it is of acceptable standard for human habitation.

This includes maintain the structure and exterior of the property as well as water, electricity and gas installations.
