Buy to let mortgages are a great way to purchase another property (or portfolio of properties) to rent out. However the maximum you are able to borrow will depend upon several factors including the type of property you want to buy, your credit history, the amount of money you have as a deposit (or equity if you are remortgaging) as well as the amount of money you can charge for monthly rent. This calculator will work out the amount of rent that you must achieve in order to borrow enough to buy the property.
It should be noted that some lenders now require first time landlords or those with a small portfolio of properties to have a separate, non-related income of at least £25,000 per year as well as the rental income. For more information and advice specific to your circumstances you should contact a mortgage broker and they'll explain everything for you.
