Buy-to-let representative example

A repayment mortgage of £183,400 payable over 25 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 1.89% and then on our current variable rate of 4.60% (variable) for the remaining 23 years would require 24 monthly payments of £767.73 and 275 monthly payments of £1,009.70, plus one final payment of £1,008.09.

The total amount payable would be £299,412.11 made up of the loan amount plus interest of £113,701.11, a booking fee of £1,999, solicitors fee of £295 and a completion fee of £17.

In this example, the overall cost for comparison is 4.30% APRC representative.

The above representative example is based on the highest APRC applicable to customers purchasing a property. Please note your actual costs and monthly repayments will vary.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Risks

Letting a residential property is a commercial transaction. You should only decide to become a landlord if you're sure you are competent and capable of undertaking the venture. This includes being competent in managing a portfolio and understanding your obligations and your responsibilities towards the tenant.

We're unable to give advice on any property investment decisions or on how you can meet your obligations to tenants. It's important that you fully understand the risks and consequences of becoming a private landlord, as well as the potential rewards. Independent financial, legal and tax advisers may be able to give you advice on your decisions. Recognised landlord bodies can also help you to understand your responsibilities.

The actual income generated from your rental property may differ and can be influenced over time by changes within the rental market. You will remain responsible for meeting the costs of your mortgage and the additional costs associated with letting the property for the duration of your ownership.
