Let to Buy Mortgage Advice in Sheffield

What is a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield?

When you have a let to buy purchase and mortgage, this is where you take a home you were previously living in and choose to instead rent it out, as a means of buying a new home for yourself.

For you to be able to do this, you will have to take out a remortgage, switching you from a residential mortgage, which you will be on currently, onto a new let to buy mortgage.

Additionally to this point, you will also be taking out a new mortgage on your new home purchase, that you plan to move into.

Both mortgages will happen at the same time, as you will need to have the funds released from your remortgage on your new let to buy, in order for you to put down a deposit on your new home.

This doesn’t mean that they are linked mortgages, you do not have to use the same mortgage lender, it just so happens that your new home mortgage will rely on the let to buy mortgage being completed first, so you can speak to a mortgage broker in Sheffield to find out more.

The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate some types of buy to let or commercial mortgages.

What is the difference between let to buy mortgage and buy to let mortgage in Sheffield?

Accorion Arrow

As can likely be deduced by the similar sounding names of the two, a let to buy mortgage is another type of buy to let mortgage available to homeowners.

A buy to let in Sheffield will typically include taking out a mortgage on a property, with the sole purpose of letting (renting) out that property, so that you have a means to generate additional income.

The difference between that and a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield, is that it most commonly found when dealing with “accidental” landlords. This is usually a situation where perhaps you had no initial plans to become a landlord, though this later changed.

Instead of going through all the stresses involved in selling a home and buying a new buy to let property, quite often homeowners will just rent out that home instead, using the income generated from that monthly income, in order to pay off their new residential mortgage on their new home.

Affordability FAQs for a Let to Buy in Sheffield

Why look into Let to Buy Mortgage advice in Sheffield?

Accorion Arrow

A let to buy mortgage in Sheffield, as we have mentioned above, will most often occur when the owner of a residential property will instead look at their options for remortgaging their home and turning it into a form of buy to let mortgage, as well as purchasing a new home on a residential mortgage, that they can live in.

Rather than going through the process of selling your current home and potentially leaving yourself stressed with property chains before you move in, a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield can actually help to reduce much of a homeowners stresses and pressure, whilst also serving to generate new income for you in the process.

There are both pros and cons to this, and it’s important to be aware of them all. As providers of expert mortgage advice in Sheffield, we have a great knowledge of situations like these, and have compiled a list of the pros and cons to a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield, below.

What are the positives and negatives of a Let to Buy Mortgage in Sheffield?

Accorion Arrow

Primarily, if we take a look at the positive sides of a let to buy in Sheffield, it can be a whole lot easier than going through the stressful process of selling your current home and finding somewhere else for you to live. Furthermore, it is a means of earning additional income that in theory, should pay for itself (the mortgage).

The potential downsides to this, is that whilst it reduces home selling stresses, you will be suddenly responsible for two properties instead of just the one, which in itself can be quite stressful for property owners. One of your properties will also have a family living in there, which you will have a level of responsibility for.

As discussed though, this will provide you with additional income, which can be a positive. You will need to remember that these types of mortgage, however, may also have a higher interest rate than a residential mortgage would have. There are also less choice when it comes to mortgage lenders with these deals, though thankfully we still have plenty on our panel.

That being said, even though they could be higher than residential mortgage rates, a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield may come with a lot more competitive interest rates and fees than a buy to let mortgage in Sheffield would, which could definitely be beneficial to you.

A key element to remember as well, is if the value of both your properties goes up, you could potentially grow your gains and find yourself with a substantial profit, should you look to sell a property later down the line. On the other hand, if the value for each property goes down, you could be at a financial loss.

So, is a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield right for me?

Accorion Arrow

There is a lot to consider when you take out a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield, but it will all depend on how you weigh up the impact of each factor to you personally. It may be worthwhile and yet it might still not be the best option for you.

What are some of the alternatives to a Let to Buy Mortgage in Sheffield?

Accorion Arrow

If a let to buy mortgage in Sheffield isn’t your most suitable choice, there are other steps you could take, such as possibly moving into a temporary or rented property, in preparation for eventually taking out a standard buy to let in Sheffield.

The problem with this, is this type of practice can often be expensive, difficult to get out of, and you also may not match up with the criteria for a mortgage lenders buy to let mortgage in Sheffield.

Another possible route to take is something that is called a consent to let, wherein a mortgage lender will allow a homeowner a granted length of time of which you are able to rent out your property, allowing you the opportunity to move into your home ahead of time.

This can initially seem much easier, though it will entirely depend on the mortgage lender you are working with. Additionally, obtaining a mortgage if you have a consent to let in place can pose a little more of a challenge.

Last of all, you may find that an alternative could simply be to sell your home, move into rented housing and then remain there until you decide to buy a home again. This can be a complex cycle to get out of, though because there won’t be as much of a property chain risk, you could be in a better spot for a mortgage down the line.
