A mortgage is a secured loan, which means that the loan is secured against the value of the property being purchased until the mortgage is paid off. Different lenders apply different lending criteria, which determine the amount a potential buyer can expect to borrow of a property’s purchase price. Factors such as affordability, available deposits, and the amount to be borrowed as a percentage of the value of the property all have a bearing on they type of mortgage offered and your eligibility to apply.

Home Mover

If you already own a home and are thinking of moving, mortgage lenders consider you a ‘Home Mover’. Getting a mortgage in this situation is often easier than as a First Time Buyer, but there is still a lot to consider. While there isn’t a specific type of mortgage for Home Movers, the term really differentiates you from First Time Buyers. The main difference is that you already have a mortgage and now need a new mortgage to buy another home. The new property might be larger, smaller or of similar size.

As with any mortgage, your first step is to find out how much a lender will offer you, and be certain you can comfortably afford the monthly repayments.

Buy To Let

A Buy to Let mortgage is a loan designed to help you buy a house or a flat and rent it out to tenants. Buy to Let mortgages usually require a bigger deposit (typically at least 25%) than residential mortgages, and interest rates are often higher.

If you are renting a property out, your mortgage must be on a Buy to Let basis. In some cases, you can convert a standard mortgage to Buy to Let – for example if you are moving away and renting out your home. Getting a Buy to Let mortgage requires meeting some specific criteria. While these will vary depending on the mortgage lender, a common requirement is for you to own your own home which you reside in. It is also much easier to get a BTL mortgage if you have a good credit history.
