  • BTL Property

    I purchase my 1st BTL property in 2010, paid £46,000 deposit from savings and took out £77,000 BLT mortgage. Mortgage over 25 years

    My aim is for the rent to pay the monthly interest payment and the extra income after that saved up to eventually pay off the capital.

    Basically in short I don’t want to put any more of my savings in to the property and want the tenant rent over the 25 years to pay off the entire mortgage so the property is mortgage free and mine outright – is this possible?

    To achieve this I am doing the below and this is where I would like advice, if is the correct way, suggestion etc:-

    Rent - 550

    Interest mortgage - 370

    Profit monthly aprox - 180

    Term – 25 years

    Over the last 3 years the mortgage has been on interest only and I have build up cash reserve of £3000. This money I intend to keep as it is for voids, maintenance etc.

    Now my main thing is how I pay the capital:-

    Option 1) Once cash reserve of say £5000 is build up, then the rest I use to make capital payment adhoc maybe 6 monthly/ yearly to reduce the mortgage and thus the interest only payment?

    What do people think is this the best way to manage the mortgage so it eventually gets paid off? I understand mortgage payments may fluctuate depending on interest rate and product I’m on through the mortgage term?

    Or is there another way to approach this?

    Is paying off capital making the property profitable, hence have higher tax bill?

      Sometimes, you get the feeling that some brokers sometimes, use smoke and mirrors, to make it more complicated than it seems so you are happy to pay their fees, because they have been able to turn your 'difficult' situation around....

      Does the fact that I will "almost" definitely want to let it out at some point in the future, (just not sure on the timescale) impact the answer to question 1 ?...

    • Paying off my BTL
      Evening all,

      What are people's thoughts on paying off a BTL mortgage early... especially seeing as mortgage interest is no longer seen as a 100% deduction.

      I currently have 18 years left on my mortgage but I was thinking of reducing my term to get it paid off especially because...

      Heads you win , Tails you win.
      have you considered putting aside more of the rental surplus and once you have a £1000 plus to make a Capital Payment off of your mortgage or indeed request the loan to be converted to a Capital & Interest loan and make progressive reductions and if there were...
