I have a mortgage with my brother on a property that we now rent out (we have a consent to let agreement with the mortgage company). My wife and I are looking to buy a place of our own. My query is can I have two mortgages?

As you can probably guess this is not something I know anything about :o. And before going to any mortgage lenders I would like to find out some information or what I can do.

Thank you

    Yes, you can.

    Many lenders will allow you to have a let property/mortgage in the background and not "tax" the mortgage payments from your income.

    You may need a higher deposit for the second property, as some lenders' maxima top-out at 80%, or 85%.
