Buy to let mortgages

Mortgage options for landlords

If you are considering becoming a Landlord, then there is a lot to think about. Recent industry changes to stamp duty, tax allowances and mortgage criteria have made it more difficult for the 1st time Landlord, yet few would deny there is still real opportunity for sound investments or capital growth in the medium to long term.

If you already have a portfolio of BTL property and want to either refinance or look at further property investments then we can guide on the best products to suit your requirements and give sound advice along the way.

Buy to let purchase

Becoming a landlord is not as daunting as it may once have seemed, in fact many owners become default landlords when they rent their existing home out and purchase a new onward property.

However others make plans to invest in property, effectively creating their own property business and build up a portfolio which provides an income and/or capital lump sums come retirement.

Whatever your needs if you want to become a first time landlord, add to or re-organise your BTL portfolio finances,  we have the skills, contacts and knowledge to make it happen.


House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO)

Buy to Lets on HMO or (Houses of Multiple Occupation) property, is a more specialist area of Landlord lending. Typically these properties, have multiple persons such as students or professionals residing in them. Often, properties range from a 4 or 5 bedroom home to a larger block of 20+  self contained units.

Interestingly, there are more lenders entering this type of market, so choice is becoming larger, but so are the complexities and criteria of lenders.

We help to navigate through the process, advising on the best lenders for your individual circumstances.


Holiday Buy-to-Let

Some landlords are expanding their portfolios by turning to property that they themselves can also benefit from.

Holiday Lets are a natural fit, with property in picturesque, desirable parts of the UK that provide decent rental returns in peak season, but that can offer personal use at other times.

Some Landlords see good year round rental returns from the Air B&B / TripAdvisor style city-break lets, these can still come under the Holiday let lending, and provide some personal use.

We have the industry knowledge and experience to place your Holiday Let property with a select number of lenders on these various scenarios.


Your Buy to Let property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage



As with all other financial professionals such as accountants or solicitors, we charge a fee for our professional advice and service.

Case Study

Mr V C ( London )  A solicitor living in London but originally from Scotland. He owns and lives in his residential with a mortgage of £500,000 on a value of £1.2M.  No other properties owned.

As Mr has strong family and business ties to Scotland, he wanted to step into property investment and become a 1st time Landlord. However he wanted to purchase in Scotland, and had identified a luxury 2 bed flat for £400K in Edinburgh City. Ideally he wanted to rent this property out on an AirB&B style basis but have occasional use of it when he would visit the city.

After speaking with us, a lender was sourced that would permit a Holiday Let mortgage with personal use, lending was based on the rental yield of the property alongside personal income affordability. Mr VC remortgaged his principle residential with a cap raise of £100,000  this along with £100,000 in savings would secure the new purchase with a 50% LTV of £200,000 on a value of £400,000.

Mr VC  was pleased to complete on the purchase the following month and 2 months later,  has had 12 weeks bookings through the year already secured on the flat, which more than covers his £200,000 annual mortgage  payments on the property

Brillant, hassle free, time saving, excellent rates, quick, beyond my expectations... I can't recommend enough and Simon as an expat and foreigner for UK mortgages. I have already used their services twice !Back in 2021 to buy a residential property for my family during troubling time when he secured me a deal that I couldn't hope for due to my circumstances and in a speedy time even compare to UK residents and British nationals ! The whole process was extremely clear from A to Z, Simon explained all the details along the way and answered easily all my questions. I felt very good he knows his thing with expats situations and all the good "tricks". He handled everything and transform a daunting process into a dream path for my family and myself.2024, time for a switch rate. UK government and banks have made life even more difficult for expats and foreigners. After trying to do it myself wasting my time with searches and multiples calls, I finally went again with Simon. In less than a week, after a 15min call, the switch rate was done ! He secured me a top 5 new rates among the UK resident mortgages. Incredible.I will certainly call him again for future operations with properties.

Simon delivered us an expat buy-to-let in the NE UK at a fixed low rate for 2.5 yrs, then we can change it to move home. Very straight forward, highly professional and, tbh, well worth the fee.If you want it to happen, just message him, as we did. He recommeded a law firm that we used too - did the job and were very competitive. Thanks.

I work overseas and have been trying for close to five years to get a mortgage to move my family who are back in the UK into without success, due to my overseas income until I chanced on Simon online. In spite of the challenges with Covid and my busy schedule Simon was very helpful and held my hands throughout the mortgage process to completion. I got a super A plus UK prime mortgage. This is the best financial service support I have received in my entire life. It was an amazing experience.

My experience with Simon at mortgagedeal was excellent. My husband and I are expats living in Nigeria. We wanted to buy a residential property in the Uk. No mortgage broker wanted to deal with a Nigerian resident earning an income in naira even though we had other property in UK with an excellent credit and had lived in the UK most of our lives before moving. We found a property we liked and had gone far when the lender told us they could not accept an income denominated in naira. We had nearly given up but I thought I would give it a last try. I found Simon on the internet and was a bit sceptical because of our experience. Simon assured us that he could get us a mortgage or he would give us back our money. We got a rate of 1.64% fixed for 5 years. We have our mortgage offer and are will exchange later this week. The whole thing has been nothing short of a miracle

The service Simon provided in securing our expat mortgage was second to none. He kept us informed every single step of the way and provided a quick and clear response to all of our queries. From mortgage application to moving in took just 8 weeks, which is pretty impressive during a global pandemic. From beginning until end Simon and his team took care of everything and I highly recommend his services.

5 stars is not enough to rate the way in which Simon listens to your requirements and truly engages to find the best solution.My case was not without challenges: a UK expat with a divorce settlement to pay ; a London flat with a lease <85 years and an unhelpful co-freeholder.With patience and perseverance, Simon found a lender and a mortgage deal with very good terms. Always realistic and pragmatic, he made sure that my application successfully completed – even during the restrictions imposed by COVID 19 pandemic!

Simon dealt with my mortgage application in an efficient and friendly manner. I did not believe it was possible to get a residential mortgage in the UK whilst living abroad, Simon found the necessary options and took the stress of applying away. He kept me in touch with each stage of the process, and today I received the good news that my mortgage has been approved. I would certainly go through Simon again, if I needed a new mortgage.
