Finding a suitable mortgage – honest and clear advice

Buy to let mortgages with Derwent Mortgages – honest and clear advice

Most of the major banks and building societies offer buy-to-let mortgages, and a number of specialist lenders provide them too. Many of the lenders will only accept applications through an adviser as this is a specialist area of advice. Never just opt for the first buy-to-let mortgage you find, as rates and fees vary widely. As the popularity of BTL as an investment grows so do the mortgage products available. You want your investment to bring you a return, so it is important that you have the right mortgage.

We can show you how to build a property portfolio and use the deposit money you have available in the best way. At Derwent Mortgages we will make sure that the numbers stack up for you and advise you on the right mortgage for you. We work with all sizes of portfolios, from a single property to multiple properties.

Whether you need a mortgage to buy your first property or to add to an existing property portfolio we will give honest and clear advice.

Free portfolio review
