Buy-to-let has been one of the best performing investments over the past 20 years, despite two financial crises and constantly changing mortgage and tax rules over the same period.
There are lots of ways to structure your buy-to-let investments, including through a limited company special purpose vehicle or simply by holding it as a personal asset.
Depending on the route you take, it will affect the mortgage you are able to get. Different rules apply for mortgage deals that are less than five years, with lenders expected to ‘stress’ how much you can afford to repay each month on a higher rate than you may get on your deal.
Limited company buy-to-let is also likely to charge you higher rates than personal buy-to-let, however, there may be a stricter affordability assessment if you are borrowing a buy-to-let mortgage in your own name.
