Buy-to-let investment

As one of the more popular types of property investment, find out more about why buy-to-let property investment may be the perfect route for your next investment venture.

What is buy-to-let property?

Buy-to-let (BTL) is where a property is purchased with the sole intention of being rented out to tenants as an investment, rather than being a main residency for the buyer.
Opting for BTL property is often better suited to a longer-term investment strategy, which allows capital to be generated through increasing rental yields. This is also seen as a more stable investment opportunity for investors with an already diverse property portfolio.

How does buy-to-let property investment work?

Investors will either pay for a buy-to-let property outright or take out a mortgage. A buy-to-let mortgage is different to a standard mortgage, often requiring a larger deposit to be put down.

Once the property has been purchased, the investor essentially becomes a landlord and any tenant which lets the property will pay a monthly rental fee directly to the investor. This is known as rental income.

Whilst the property is being rented, there is also the prospect that its value increases, meaning that when the investor comes to sell the property, they may make money on their original investment. This is known as capital growth.

If you have a rental property which isn’t being occupied by a tenant and you are reliant on rental fees to cover any mortgage costs, this is known as a void period.
