From your first enquiry to your first tenants, our Buy-to-Let purchase plans work in a similar way to a conventional mortgage.

Why finance your Buy-to-Let with us?

We provide a range of Buy-to-Let property finance solutions for UK residents, UK Expats, International residents and UK registered corporate entities looking to purchase residential investment property across England and Wales.

Our Buy-to-Let purchase plans offer you a Shariah-compliant alternative to a mainstream Buy-to-Let mortgage, with competitive rates and an ethical approach. You can use it just like a conventional mortgage to buy your property. We offer ’Acquisition and Rent’ products (the Shariah-compliant alternative to a conventional repayment mortgage) and ‘Rent Only’ products (the Shariah-compliant alternative to a conventional interest-only mortgage).

With a Buy-to-Let purchase plan you buy the property jointly with us - your deposit is your stake, and we fund the rest. Once all your payments are made (including any final lump sum payments for Rent Only applications), you acquire the property and the deed of the property transfers to you. You are free to sell the property any time (Early Redemption Charges may apply) and any profit made on the sale is retained by you.

Our Buy-to-Let services include:

  • Portfolios welcome – no limit on the number of properties
  • Finance available to individuals (employed, self-employed and contractors) and UK registered corporate entities which include Limited Companies, LLPs (Limited Liability Partnerships) and SPVs (Special Purpose Vehicles)
  • Finance available up to 80% of the purchase price or property value (whichever is the lower) up to £1m. For HMOs/MUFBs 75% up to £1m
  • Finance is available over a maximum 30-year term for UK residents or 25-year term for UK Expats and International residents
  • Green Finance Products are available to both new and existing customers which carry a discounted rate of 0.10% off the standard product rate (terms apply, see eligibility below)
  • Finance available for Houses and Flats (including new build)
  • Finance permitted for HMOs (Houses in Multiple Occupation) and MUFBs (Multi-Unit Freehold Blocks) with no upper limit on rooms or flats. (Please note that HMO finance is not available to International residents)
  • Available to first time landlords where existing property ownership is not a requirement
  • Rental Top-up facility available to UK residents only (This is where your personal income may also be taken into consideration when assessing affordability for Buy-to-Let finance. Please contact us for more information)

Here to help

To help answer all your questions, we have a comprehensive FAQ section. We also have some handy calculators you might find useful, along with details of all our products. To help our customers we have a Homebuyer Guide which gives you an insight into each of the key steps when buying your property, and also a handy one-page Homebuyer Checklist which provides a summary of the key stages at a glance.

Next Steps

We have a team of experienced and qualified staff on hand to help you every step of the way. We only offer an execution-only (non-advised) service for our Buy-to-Let customers. The process usually takes 2-4 weeks from the initial application to an Offer of finance being issued, as long as you send us the documents we need promptly, and we get an acceptable property valuation. Then it’s usually another 12-16 weeks from receiving a signed Offer of finance to legal completion as long as all the right documents are submitted to the solicitors and satisfactory legal reports are received.
