Can I get a buy to let mortgage after buying with cash?

I am buying a property with cash. Are there buy to let mortgages I can apply for after I have completed?

Georgie,

The short answer is that 'yes' there are, however not every lender will consider them immediately after completion. The majority of lenders will only look at a remortgage after you've owned the property for 6 months, so your choice would of lender would be somewhat reduced, if you apply within this timescale.

We naturally would need a better understanding of your circumstances, as every case is assessed individually, to look at what the best option would be for you.

If you'd like to speak to one of our consultants to get a clearer idea of what's available to you, then please let me know and I'll sort out a suitable time for one of them to contact you.

Regards,
