This is most frequently done when you come to the end of an initial deal and find that your existing lender is no longer offering the best terms. This is where we come in. We can very quickly tell you whether or not it is worth remortgaging, what type of mortgage is right for you, how much you could save, and what the process will involve.

Buy to let mortgages are secured against property which is to be let out to a tenant. The basic idea is that the rent will cover the mortgage payments by some margin, enabling the property owner to make a profit whilst also benefitting from any potential increase in the property value.
There are also a variety of options when it comes to Buy to Let mortgages, depending on your individual objectives. Our Buy to Let expert advisers can offer the specialist advice you will require, ensuring you get the very best terms available.
How it works
With Buy to Let mortgages, lenders typically require a minimum deposit of 25% which can either come from your own savings or be raised against another property that you own, including your main home. The mortgage provider will lend the remaining funds secured against the property through traditional means.
When the lender sends a surveyor to value the property, they not only look at the value of the property if it were to be sold, but also the value of the rent they would expect that property to generate. Lenders typically want to see that the rent coming in covers the mortgage payments by 125% on an interest only basis. However, this requirement can vary between lenders and sometimes be more stringent.
Unlike traditional residential mortgages, Buy to Let mortgage lenders do not typically base their decision to lend on the affordability of the individual applying for the mortgage. Instead, they expect the rent to cover the mortgage and are therefore less concerned with the applicant’s ability to afford the monthly payment. Some lenders have minimum income requirements, but others are solely concerned with the self-financing ability of the property.
Also, unlike residential mortgages where you are expected to take the mortgage on through a repayment basis, with Buy to Let mortgages you can typically take the mortgage on an interest only basis as it is an investment property which can be sold towards the end of the term as a means of repaying the loan.

Our expert Mortgage Brokers can assist in working out the additional costs of owning a second home (i.e. Stamp Duty costs) and review lenders who offer the lending capacity for this.
Maybe you dream of a cottage on the coast, or perhaps you need one place in the city for work, but want a country escape for the weekends? Many of our clients already own second homes and say the benefits are two-fold: growth in value for the future, and a bolthole of your own to escape to (without having to pay rent).
Remember, affordability is a key consideration for a second home. Not just in terms of the mortgage payments and additional stamp duty that applies to second homes, but also the running costs associated with having two properties.

At Gladstonei365 Mortgage Brokers we have the experience to navigate the complexities that often come with less conventional mortgage applications, such as large mortgages.
When using the term’ large mortgage’ we are typically referring to mortgages over £1,000,000, but potentially those over £500,000 as well.
It can sometimes be difficult to arrange a large mortgage as high street banks do not necessarily have the appetite for this level of lending. However, other avenues do exist, such as private banks and specialist departments of some high street lenders, who are prepared to consider large mortgages and often have considerably different terms than those on offer for their more typical customers.
