What is a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham?

A let to buy purchase and mortgage is where you change from living in your current home to becoming a landlord, taking on a new mortgage that allows you to take on a tenant and also buy a new home for you to live in as well.

For a homeowner to look at doing this, they will need to take out a remortgage on their home, switching it from the residential mortgage that they have had it on, to a brand new let to buy mortgage in Nottingham instead.

In addition to this, you will need a new place to live yourself and as such, will be taking out a new residential mortgage on a home that you are going to be living in. These mortgages are not tied to one another.

Both mortgages will instead be running side by side and you need to release funds from your remortgage, in order to place a deposit down on your new home. They don’t even have to be with the same mortgage lender, you just are relying on one mortgage to supply the necessary funds for the other.

FAQs for Let to Buy in Nottingham

What is the difference between let to buy mortgage and buy to let mortgage in Nottingham?

Accorion Arrow

As you can likely decipher from the virtually identical names, a let to buy mortgage is just another variation of buy to let mortgage.

A buy to let in Nottingham is the process of taking out a mortgage on a property, purely with the intention of renting out the property the mortgage is attached to, as a means to provide you with additional income.

The difference between that and taking out a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham, is that this type of process is fairly common with what we call “accidental” landlords. These are people who maybe weren’t looking to become a landlord initially, only to later decide that might be something they’d like to do.

Instead of taking on all of the stresses that are usually included with selling a home and purchasing a new buy to let in Nottingham, often homeowners will take the route of just renting out their once home, using the income generated to pay off the balance of a new residential mortgage that they have taken out on a new home.

Are there any stamp duty charges in Nottingham?

Accorion Arrow

You should always prepare for the likely stamp duty land tax costs that are to be involved with taking out a mortgage, especially for a buy to let or let to buy in Nottingham. Stamp duty doesn’t necessarily count for every property owner, so it is best to do research ahead of time.

As an trusted and reliable mortgage broker in Nottingham, one of our hard working mortgage advisors in Nottingham will make sure that you know every cost involved in your let to buy mortgage process, including stamp duty, during your free mortgage appointment. You can book in for one of these using the enquire online button on our website.

Can I get a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham with bad credit?

Accorion Arrow

Because the process of let to buy in Nottingham is tied to taking out both a residential and buy to let mortgage, you may find that you will have much stricter mortgage lending criteria to match up to.

Whilst you may indeed have a low credit score, CCJ, default and a history of late payments, and other aspects that could hurt your chances of getting a mortgage, we do have a variety of specialist mortgage lenders on panel who may be able to help you out, depending on your situation.

Affordability FAQs for a Let to Buy in Nottingham

Why look into Let to Buy Mortgage advice in Nottingham?

Accorion Arrow

A let to buy mortgage in Nottingham, as we discussed in the above section, will most likely come into play when the owner of a residential property instead looks to remortgage their current home into a buy to let mortgage, using the funds raised from the remortgage to put down the deposit for a new property.

Rather than going through the process of selling your home, getting stressed, possibly ending up in a property chain, it could be ideal for you to look at a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham, as a means to reduce some of that stress and perhaps even generate some additional income.

Whilst there are pros and cons to doing this, it could be something that is at least worth looking at. As long-standing providers of expert mortgage advice in Nottingham, we have an in-depth knowledge on let to buy mortgages in Nottingham and have compiled a handy pros and cons list for you below.

The Positives and Negatives of a Let to Buy Mortgage in Nottingham

Accorion Arrow

First of all to highlight one of the positives, as touched upon, it can be much less stressful than going through the process of finding somewhere else to live whilst also selling you home. In addition to this, the generated additional income will help to pay off your mortgage balance for the let to buy mortgage it is attached to.

The potential downside is that even though your stress levels may go down due to not selling, you will be going on to become responsible for two properties, as opposed to one. In itself, this can make it much more stressful for you as a property owner, especially with you also becoming responsible to some degree for those would-be tenants.

As we have said though, it will also provide you with additional income, which could be great. Please do bear in mind though that these types of mortgages typically have higher rates of interest than residential mortgage. There are also much fewer mortgage lenders with let to buy mortgage deals on offer, though thankfully we still have plenty who do so on our panel of mortgage lenders.

That being said, whilst interest rates for a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham could be higher, they might still have much more competitive interest rates and fees than would otherwise be found on a straight buy to let mortgage in Nottingham would, which could be a positive.

It is also important to know that if the value of your property were to increase, you could find yourself in profit if you were to sell in the future, though on the flip side, if the value were to drop, you could find yourself losing money.

So, is a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham right for me?

Accorion Arrow

There are many different ups and downs for you to think about when you take out a let to buy in Nottingham, though this depends on how these impact you personally as a property owner. It could be viable, though there could also be other steps that you could take.

Alternatives to a Let to Buy Mortgage in Nottingham

Accorion Arrow

If you instead decide that a let to buy mortgage in Nottingham isn’t quite the mortgage for you, there are other routes you could take, such as temporary or rental housing, whilst you prepare for a typical buy to let in Nottingham.

The problem is that in doing this, you may not necessarily match mortgage lender criteria for a buy to let mortgage in Nottingham, it can be a difficult situation to get out of and ultimately, it can end up being quite costly.

Another possible option for you could be a consent to let, wherein a mortgage lender will allow a homeowner a certain amount of time in which they can rent out there property, giving them a chance to move into a new home in the meantime.

This may look like it is actually an easier option, though it will be entirely dependent on the mortgage lender you are with. Additionally, obtaining a mortgage whilst you have a consent to let in place can prove to be a little tricky.

Last of all, an alternative to all of the above could be to simply sell your home, move into rented housing and then remain there until you wish to purchase a home once again. This can be a complex cycle to get out of, though you could arguably be in a much better place due to a lack of property chain when the time to purchase comes back around.
