  1. Hi, You'll need 25% of your purchase price of your buy to let for your deposit then solicitors and mortgage fees etc and then some some other cash to do it up and then furnishing. Your 12k is a great start and your well on the way to making this a reality but you'll need about 4x that amount from my experience. Heres a senario. house/flat 150k Deposit 37.5 k solicitors fees 1 k = 38.5k 10% ROI is hard to find but not impossible, but 6-8% is more achievable Kind regards
