What is

In the UK, buy-to-let refers to the purchase of a property specifically for the purpose of renting it out to tenants. This type of investment allows property owners, known as landlords, to generate rental income while potentially benefiting from property value appreciation over time. Buy-to-let properties are typically financed through specialized buy-to-let mortgages, which differ from standard residential mortgages in terms of deposit requirements and interest rates. Landlords are responsible for maintaining the property, managing tenants, and complying with rental regulations.
