Obviously, asking in this forum will probably have more votes for becoming mortgage free but just wanted to see pros and cons for mortgage free vs investing in BTL in the current market and the future.

The reason I say current market and the future is because in the past I believe it was a no brainer to invest in BTL due to paying less tax, less policies, etc and making a healthy profit both as cash flow and capital gains. But obviously things have changed.
