Just had a chat with John Fahy this morning. Extremely helpful and explained everything very clearly to me. Thanks for all your help.

We wanted to move from a tracker to a fixed rate mortgage and from the start John was extremely helpful and provided sound advice. He even supported us in areas nor related to the switch like arranging an appointment with a valuation agency. In the end, in a fast moving market, we believe we got the best deal it was possible to get.

John was extremely professional and clear about all the steps in purchasing a home in Ireland. He was always accommodating with all our requests and transparent about how things are moving along in the application process. I would highly recommend his services if looking to buy a house, especially first-time buyers.

Buy-to-Let Mortgages

A buy-to-let mortgage is designed for individuals looking to purchase a property for rental purposes rather than personal residence.

These mortgages typically involve interest-only payments, meaning your monthly repayments cover only the interest on the loan. It’s crucial to have a plan for repaying the mortgage at the end of the term, such as using savings, selling the property, or refinancing.


Key Features of Buy-to-Let Mortgages

  • Minimum Deposit: Generally,  20-40% deposit is required. The larger the deposit, the better the rates you may qualify for.
  • Interest-Only Payments: Lower monthly repayments with full repayment at the end of the term.
  • Higher Risk: Considered higher risk than residential mortgages due to potential rent collection issues or vacant periods.

Key Features of Buy-to-Let Mortgages

Investing in a buy-to-let property involves more than just the mortgage. It’s important to factor in additional costs to ensure a successful investment:

  • Letting Agent Fees: Costs associated with hiring a letting agent to manage the property.
  • Landlord Insurance: Essential to protect your investment.
  • Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax: Taxes on rental income and any profit from selling the property.
  • Maintenance Costs: Regular upkeep and potential repairs.
  • Stamp Duty: Tax paid on the purchase of the property.

FAQ's About Buy to Let Mortgage

What is a buy-to-let mortgage?

A buy-to-let mortgage is a type of mortgage specifically designed for individuals who wish to purchase a property to rent out rather than live in themselves. These mortgages are typically interest-only, meaning you only pay the interest each month and the principal amount at the end of the term.

What are the benefits of a buy-to-let mortgage?
  • Potential for rental income.
  • Opportunity for property value appreciation over time.
  • Tax benefits on mortgage interest payments and certain property-related expenses.
How much deposit is required for a buy-to-let mortgage?

Typically, lenders require a minimum deposit of 30% of the property’s value. Larger deposits can often secure better mortgage rates.

Are buy-to-let mortgages more expensive than residential mortgages?

Yes, buy-to-let mortgages generally have higher interest rates and require larger deposits due to the increased risk associated with rental properties.

Can I live in a property purchased with a buy-to-let mortgage?

No, living in a property bought with a buy-to-let mortgage is not allowed and is considered mortgage fraud. The property must be rented out.

How is the interest on a buy-to-let mortgage calculated?

The interest on a buy-to-let mortgage depends on factors such as loan size, rental income potential, and your financial circumstances. Fixed-rate, variable-rate, and tracker mortgages each have different interest calculations.

What happens if my rental property is vacant?

If your rental property is vacant, you will still need to make the mortgage payments. It’s important to have a financial plan to cover these periods without rental income.
