We will make sure you have all the information you need before you take the next steps or make any decision on purchasing a rental property.
We can help with the following types of Buy to Let mortgages:
- Regulated and non-regulated
- Consumer Buy to Let

Regulation change for landlords
In order to comply with new regulations, with effect from 1 October 2017, any property rented out will have to have a minimum EPC rating of E. A civil penalty of up to £4000 will be imposed for breaches of the regulations.
The regulations will apply to:
- a new tenancy to a new tenant
- a renewal of a tenancy to an existing tenant
Our helpful guide to becoming a landlord provides helpful information on finding the right property and regulations to be aware of.
