It is very important that you do plenty of research before taking out a buy-to-let mortgage. You need to be confident that your rental income will comfortably cover your mortgage and all your other expenses. Lenders will expect to see evidence that your expected rent will cover your mortgage payments by at least 125%.
A buy-to-let property should be seen as a long-term investment. Over the longer term, house prices are likely to increase but in the short term they could fall or stay the same. No one knows what will happen for certain
