Over the last 2 years with have seen an increasing number of buy to let lenders lending up to 80% loan to value. Today, there are 9 buy to let lenders offering 60 mortgage products to 80% loan to value.

As the mortgage market continues to become competitive at the lower loan to value BTL mortgages and when mortgage lenders do not want to cut any further, the lenders' criteria can be expanded to include higher loan to value mortgages.

However, you must consider the rental income must ensure the mortgage advance is affordable under the Buy to Let mortgage lenders 'rental affordability'. Most mortgage lenders assess the rental income against the loan advance on an interest only basis to ensure the rent covers the monthly mortgage payment plus 25%. This remaining 25% leaves an amount to cover additional landlord letting costs, rental voids and some profit.

This is in addition to mortgage lenders requiring evidence that you have a personal income to cover personal commitments, or typically a minimum £25,000 income.
