Buy to let

When considering a buy to let mortgage application, a lender will typically look for a prospective rental income of 125% of the monthly interest payment of the loan, but may also require the landlord to have a minimum personal income e.g. £25,000 per annum.

Because demand in the rental sector is high, an investment property could be an ideal venture for the right person. However, finding the right buy to let mortgage has recently become more complex.

Our expert advisers will help find the best buy to let mortgage deal for you to safeguard your investment and maximise profits. We will help plan your portfolio by understanding your individual circumstances, both now and in the future. Click here for more information.


Property tax

Residential Property

Landlords must pay tax on the profit made from renting out the property, after deductions for 'allowable expenses'.

Allowable expenses are things you need to spend money on in the day-to-day running of the property, like:

  • Letting agents' fees
  • Legal fees for lets of a year or less, or for renewing a lease for
    less than 50 years
  • Accountant's fees
  • Buildings and contents insurance
  • Interest on property loans
  • Maintenance and repairs to the property (but not improvements)
  • Utility bills
  • Rent, ground rent, service charges
  • Council Tax
  • Cleaning and Gardening
  • Other direct costs of letting the property, like phone calls,
    stationery and advertising

Allowable expenses do not include 'capital expenditure' - like buying a property or renovating it beyond repairs to wear and tear.
