What is a Let to Buy Mortgage?
It’s easiest explained by describing the scenario when you will need one:
Imgaine you live in your home now, but suddenly you want to move to a larger property.
Rather than selling your home, you think it might be a good idea to keep it and rent it out.
Remember this can be a great solution for a market which takes a long time to sell, where you want to purchase quickly, where you don’t want to be stuck in a chain or where you want to keep hold of your home for property investing purposes.
The problem you face by doing this is you probably don’t have a deposit to put down on the new house you want to move into! If you do, then a different solution might be required, but lets assume you don’t for now.
Essentially it means you’ll have two mortgages; one on your (soon to be) rental and a new one on the new home.
The solution is to get a let to buy mortgage on your home and borrow a bit more, which then acts as the deposit for your purchase.
Now the important thing to manage is also the onward purchase, as the lender for your new home will want to know everything about your let to buy mortgage.
In other words both mortgages are very closely linked and intertwined. In a nutshell, both mortgages have to be very carefully managed.
This is a complex scenario and its vital to work with experienced mortgage brokers who are used to doing these.
