Residential (owner occupied) mortgages
This type of mortgage can be used when purchasing a property for your own personal use, as either a main residence or a second property/holiday home. Every application will be tailored to an individual’s personal circumstances and consideration given to; affordability, term of the loan, repayment method and future plans.
Lenders typically request a minimum of 10% deposit, unless using the Help to Buy equity loan, which only requires 5% from the applicant. At this level interest rates start around 3.05% per annum but a larger deposit (40%) could open up interest rates as low as 1.22%.
Buy to Let mortgages
This type of mortgage is used when purchasing a property as an investment, which will be let out either on an AST or short-term/holiday let basis.
The typical deposit for a BTL is 25% of the purchase price though there are some buy to let lenders that will accept 20%. Currently BTL interest rates can be as low as 1.19% per annum, with a 35% deposit required. With a 25% deposit, rates can be around 1.59%+.
Affordability is less reliant on your personal income but based on what the property can be let out for. Every lender will assess the rental amount differently to the next so it is important that you cover the whole market and get the best option for your circumstance.

Simply contribute as little as a 5% deposit on a newly built home and your mortgage will make up the rest after the 20% equity loan, which will be interest free for 5 years!
