What is a let to buy mortgage in Manchester?

A let to buy purchase and mortgage is the process of renting out the current property that you own and live in, as a means to purchase your new home.

For this to be achieved, you will need to remortgage your home, switching it from a residential mortgage and changing it onto a new let to buy mortgage instead.

Furthermore on this point, you will also be taking on a brand new mortgage on another property, this one being the new home that you are moving to.

Both mortgages will run alongside each other, as you will need to release funds from one of them, in order to put down the deposit on the other one. You won’t necessarily use the same mortgage lender for each, they’re just separate entities that rely on each other.

FAQs for Let to Buy in Manchester

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

Accorion Arrow

As can probably be figured out by the similar sounding names, a let to buy mortgage is just another variation of the ever popular buy to let mortgage. The latter involves taking out a mortgage on a property, purely with the purpose of renting it out and generating income.

The difference when dealing with a let to buy mortgage in Manchester, is that they typically end up happening with “accidental” landlords. This is where you maybe don’t have plans initially to become a landlord, only to later decide that it is something you’d like to do.

Rather than going through all the stresses of selling a home and buying a new one, more often than not, homeowners will opt to rent out their home, using the income generated to pay off their brand new residential mortgage.

Are there any stamp duty charges in Manchester?

You should make sure that you are aware of all the costs when applying for a mortgage, and this is very much the same for a let to buy mortgage in Manchester. Stamp Duty will not apply to everyone, so it is always important to check ahead of time.

Affordability FAQs for a Let to Buy in Manchester

Why look into Let to Buy Mortgage advice in Manchester?

Accorion Arrow

A let to buy mortgage in Manchester, as we have mentioned, typically happens when the homeowner of a residential property decides that they actually would like to become a landlord and remortgage their home, changing it from a residential mortgage onto a let to buy mortgage in Manchester. They also then look at buying a new home to live in.

Whilst there are both positives and negatives to a let to buy mortgage in Manchester, it’s important that you weigh up how important they are to you. As providers of mortgage advice in Manchester, we have a lot of expert knowledge on let to buy mortgages in Manchester and have put together a list of the pros and cons, below.

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

Accorion Arrow

So first off, let’s take a look at the positive side of things. Instead of all the hassle you could go through in selling a property and then trying to buy a new one, taking out a let to buy mortgage instead could make your entire process much less stressful and also provide some additional income for you.

Then again, conversely to this, you are responsible for two properties and also your tenants (potentially a family looking to build a family home) and this in itself can prove to be quite a stressful endeavour in itself.

Furthermore, whilst you would have more income, let to buy mortgage rates are typically higher than residential mortgage rates and there are less mortgage lenders out there who offer this type of deal. That being said, those rates could be much more competitive and we also have plenty of mortgage lenders on our panel who can help with let to buy mortgages in Manchester.

You’ll also have to bear in mind the possible changes in property value. An increase in both properties values would obviously see you at an advantage if you ever wanted to sell up, though a drop in either or both could very much see you at a financial loss.

Alternatives to a Let to Buy Mortgage in Manchester

Accorion Arrow

There may actually be much more suitable options out there for you instead of taking out a let to buy mortgage in Manchester. One of these could be to move into temporary or rental accommodation, whilst you take out a standard buy to let mortgage in Manchester or save up the funds to buy your next residential home.

The issue here is that this can be quite costly and in being in rental accomodation, you may also not match mortgage lender criteria for a buy to let mortgage in Manchester. Furthermore, it can be quite a costly and difficult cycle to move from rental property back to homeownership.

Another option could be consent to let. Here, a mortgage lender lets you rent out your residential home for a set length of time to earn some income, whilst you move into your new home.

This may sound easy, but entirely depends on mortgage lender. Additionally, getting a mortgage on a new home with consent to let in place on another one, may be a difficult process for some.
