How much deposit do I need for a BTL mortgage? Most lenders will need a minimum 25% of the purchase price to be put down as a deposit from usually some form of cash savings or gift or inheritance. However, there are some products available with 20% deposit but these rates will usually be higher as are seen as higher risk by the lender.
Speaking to an adviser is essential as the deposit amount required is also dependent on the rental income of the property, the lenders stress rate and the loan amount available.
What is a stress rate? Lenders will use a stress rate (which can vary dependant on if you are buying personally or as a company and what your personal income tax band is, as well as if you are looking at a 2 or 5 year fixed rate) to “stress” the loan amount at a higher rate than the product being offered to calculate whether they consider the loan is affordable long term in case of future rate rises.
For example a lender may need the monthly rental income to cover the mortgage amount at 140% based on 5.5%.
To support a mortgage of £150,000 @ 5.5% @ 140% / 12 months = £962.50 monthly rental income is required.
Your adviser will be able to let you know the stress rates from each lender and calculate the maximum loan based on the property if you can provide the anticipated rental income.
How much income do I need?
There are lenders available who have no minimum income and a few who are happy with no income at all basing the loan amount solely on the property’s rental income. However, the standard high street lenders do tend to have a minimum income requirement which is around £20,000 – £30,000, varying between lenders.
