2. Provide the purchase details

Determine the property’s market value and expected monthly rent – helpful guides have been linked. 


3. Enter Finance details 

Simply enter your LTV, the mortgage rate and other associated costs. If you don’t have any, just look at what products are currently available. If you’re purchasing with cash, set the Loan-to-Value (LTV) to 0%.


4. Monthly operating costs

Providing these will help to calculate your monthly profit – Landlord insurance is a must have and will usually set you back £30 a month.
