First Time Buy to Let Mortgages

From first time landlords who haven’t purchased a residential property to rent out before, to first time buyers who have never owned any kind of property before, at Mortgaze we are ideally positioned to secure the finance for your first buy to let investment.

The buy-to-let market is one that has been traditionally dominated by a small number of companies that own vast portfolios of properties. This trend has changed significantly in recent years with more and more first time buy-to-let mortgages being approved for private individuals who are looking to enter into the market.

First time buy-to-let mortgages are slightly more complicated to secure than those from applicants who can already demonstrate a strong background of buying and developing properties to let, but if the right criteria are met there is no reason why we will not be able to help you achieve your first buy-to-let mortgage.

If you are already a home-owner and are now looking to make the move into the buy-to-let market, we will conduct a thorough review of your needs to ensure that we are able to secure you the best possible terms on your first time buy-to-let mortgage.
