BTL or Holiday Let - Mortgages


Recommended Posts

Hi all

New investor to the property market,  wondering if I can use a BTL mortgage for a Holiday Let property? I have heard that technically you are not supposed to do that, and that in fact you should seek out a specific holiday let mortgage, but that they are then much harder to attain and at worse rates?

Anyone brave enough to advise!? 

Many thanks in advance

If you are intending to run a holiday let setup then I think you have answered your own question in what you are supposed to do. No reputable person in the mortgage field is going to advocate you being untruthful to a lender in the application. 

Holiday let products generally carry stricter criteria and higher rates reflecting the higher risk nature of running such a setup.. vs a BTL which is much more straightforward and priced accordingly. If you are a first time investor this will likely restrict lender options further as Holiday let products are usually aimed at experienced investors.
