What to look out for when buying to let

Fixed rates

The biggest advantage of a fixed rate is that you know exactly what your repayments will be for a pre-agreed length of time, as they will not change no matter what happens to wider interest rates.

Monthly repayment cost

This is a fixed cost each month. Knowing this cost will help you to determine if the mortgage is affordable for you, and to budget for the repayments.

Capital gains tax

If you’re a basic rate tax payer, CGT on buy to let second property’s is charged at 18% and if you’re a higher or additional rate tax payer it’s charged at 28%.

Income tax

The income you receive as rent is liable for income tax and should be declared on your Self Assessment tax return for the tax year it was earned in.

Penalties for late/missed payments

It's worth noting what to expect in the event that payments are late or missed, and if this is something you're prepared to accept.

Early repayment options

You might be in the position to repay your mortgage earlier than your agreed term. It’s good to be aware of your options as you might be able to do it without fees.
