Frequently asked questions
As with any buy to let mortgage, the rental income being received (if you are remortgaging) or expected to be achieved (if you are buying) impacts how much you can borrow.
Outside of this, the maximum loan to value currently available, when investing through a limited company, is 85% of the property value. Typically, fewer lenders are available when borrowing at the highest loan to value ratios, and more lenders offer mortgages at 80% or 75% loan to value.
If you are struggling to raise a deposit, but have other property you can borrow against, you could look into generating a deposit from available equity.
In general, the requirements set by lenders for securing a limited company buy to let mortgage closely resemble those for an individual buy to let application. The lender evaluates the expected rental income and the property itself using similar criteria, and typically extends a mortgage offer.
The maximum you can borrow is 85% of the property value. The rent you will receive will ultimately affect how much you can borrow, as the rent covers the mortgage payment.
A lender will look for the rent to cover the mortgage plus a percentage. This is to ensure the mortgage remains affordable if your costs rise. This is called ‘rental cover’.
Lenders also apply a ‘stress rate’ to the affordability calculation, to ensure that if mortgage rates rise, your rent will still mean you can cover the mortgage cost.
These measures are applicable to all buy to let mortgage affordability calculations, whether you apply via a limited company or not.
The minimum deposit for a limited company buy to let mortgage is 15% of the property value, but, if you do not have this amount in cash, you may be able to raise a deposit from available equity in other property you own.
Investing in buy to let property using a limited company experienced a notable rise in popularity when tax laws changed. Modifications to the tax regulations in 2017 meant that tax relief on mortgage interest was gradually withdrawn. It was replaced with a flat 20% basic rate relief tax reduction.
Limited company property investments were not affected in the same way, as tax relief on mortgage costs remained. Corporation tax is paid in place of personal income tax. For some investors, this meant that buying property through a limited company was more profitable. Professional tax advice is essential before you decide which route to take.

Getting a limited company buy to let mortgage is as complicated a task as finding any mortgage. There are a large number of lenders and it is difficult to work out – without help – which lender can offer you the most cost effective deal, which also align with your life plans.
Using a broker cuts across all this complexity, because a broker will have a conversation with you to find out what you need, and will do all of the research for you.
The most important factor in securing a buy to let mortgage via a limited company is the rent you will receive. Your personal income is much less of a factor; because the rent covers the mortgage payments, so if the rent is adequate, the lender’s primary requirement is satisfied.
