How can an 80% LTV buy-to-let mortgage benefit me?

There are a number of reasons landlords favour an 80% LTV buy-to-let mortgages. From the simplest perspective, if you have a specific property in mind but only have a 20% deposit to invest, this is the obvious route to go down.

Over and above this, there are a few different landlord groups who can use high LTV ratios to their advantage:

High LTV ratios for first time buyers/first time landlords

If you are making your first investment in a rental property, or into any property (i.e. you do not own your own home), then the opportunity to invest with 20% of the property value may be useful.

Bear in mind that, by lending you a greater percentage of the capital of the property, a lender will commonly mitigate their risk by charging at a higher rate of interest than lower LTV ratios which will have an impact on your monthly mortgage payments.

Limited companies

We can access lenders who offer 80% LTV buy to let mortgages to limited companies, if you want to see today’s deals which fall into this category, click through to our comparison table and filter the results to show just these deals.

It is worth noting that the PRA changes to underwriting do not affect limited company deals. If you are remortgaging as an individual borrower and find that borrowing based on 145% rental coverage and 5.5% affordability stress rate does not achieve the capital you require, you may be able to remortgage your property into a limited company which is subject to 125% rental coverage and 5% affordability stress rate.

Property portfolios - remortgage to raise capital

If you are looking to raise funds from the equity in your property portfolio, but don’t want to sacrifice too much on the rates you consider (which are commonly higher, the more you borrow versus the amount you invest) an 80% LTV buy-to-let mortgage may be a great option.

The difference between the lowest 80% LTV initial rate deal and those products at 85% can be considerable.
