    Changing a standard mortgage to a buy to let mortgage 12th Oct 16 at 9:15 AM
    Hi, Im hoping somebody can point me in the right direction??

    Me and my husband are wanting to change our normal mortgage to a buy to let mortgage, is this possible or will we need to remortgage etc. I have no idea where to start with this one so any advice would be great.

    Thank you

    You'll need to apply. Not just a question of switching products. As for remortgaging. Does your existing lender offer BTL products? Vast majority of BTL products are now only available through mortgage brokers.

    Have you asked your current lender about consent to let?
