How we can help you
When looking for a mortgage for an Airbnb property you’ll need to provide lenders with information about your financial circumstances. They’ll need to know about your monthly income and expenditure, and how much you’ll have as a deposit.
In particular they’ll want information about your plans for the property. This will include whether you plan to let out the whole property or just part of it. They’ll also want to know how many weeks a year you will make it available for rent.
Many lenders will want to know what type of property you want to buy to let out. Listed buildings or unusual homes are less attractive to lenders but we can provide advice on what is possible.
We’ll help you compile all the personal and property information lenders will need and guide you through the process of applying for your mortgage. We’ll survey the whole mortgage market and find the right deal for you.
Whether you want to let out a property you already own or find a property to invest in our expert advisors are here to help take the strain out of the process so you can focus on planning for your first guests.
What's special about an Airbnb Mortgage?
If you want to invest in an Airbnb holiday let property you will probably need a holiday let mortgage. These mortgages are specially designed for properties that are let out on a short-term basis and there are products available specifically designed for Airbnb hosts.
Holiday let mortgage applications are considered based on your persona financial circumstances and the commercial potential of the property. You’ll need to provide details of your income, size of your deposit, your credit rating and typical monthly out-goings. You’ll also need to provide information about the type of property you want to let out, and the potential Airbnb rental income you think you’ll generate.
If you already have a mortgage on the property you want to rent out, check with your current lender if that’s possible. If you intend to let out the whole property, you might not be able to with your current mortgage. This is because residential mortgages are offered with the intention that the property will be your main residence. You might need to change your mortgage to a holiday let mortgage for Airbnb.
Don’t worry, we can help you with all of this, so you can achieve your dream!
Joe, Ben, and Mark were WONDERFULLY helpful at all stages of the mortgage process. Friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, prompt, professional - they went out of their way to answer all of our questions (and there were a lot). Their fees are reasonable - but the most important thing to bear in mind is that you will get personal service from people who really understand this field.
They are brilliant and I can't say enough good things about HHH Mortgages!
Thank you to Mark and Caroline we were able to get our holiday let. They gave us excellent advise that was always valuable. Mark has taken his time to explain everything in detail and nothing was ever too much trouble. We feel we would not have been successful without their input and their professional advice. I would highly recommend this company for the efficiency, friendliness and professionalism.
Thank you Mark and Caroline!
Joe and Ben were fantastic throughout. I would not have secured a mortgage without them due to my complicated personal circumstances (including restricted holiday let, non-UK residency, to name but two). They showed patience and professionalism over several months of rigorous enquiry by the lender to get the lender (and me!) over the line.
Thank you so much Joe and Ben! Highly recommended!
We had an excellent experience with Joe when remortgaging a Holiday Let we had struggled to find suitable products for Witt other mortgage brokers. Joe and Lauren supported us through the application and getting to completion and we are thrilled to have finally mortgaged out property for the full amount achievable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and will be working with Joe again on future mortgages
Our most frequently asked questions
We’re here to help you navigate the process of applying for an Airbnb mortgage. Our experts will work with you to understand your personal financial situation and your plans for your Airbnb property. They will guide you through the application process and provide bespoke advice for your circumstances and plans. We’d love to hear from you so if you have any questions, please get in touch.
Possibly. You must contact your current lender and let them know of your plans. Most lenders will require you to obtain their consent before letting out your property on Airbnb.
They could view you letting out your entire property as a breach of their mortgage contract and so you may need to switch to a holiday let or commercial mortgage.
Commercial mortgages are designed for properties on long term lets for day-to-day business activities. They are not usually available for Airbnb property lets, however, if you have a large property portfolio it may be possible to borrow funds through a commercial mortgage. There will be certain criteria you would need to satisfy, but we can advise you and help with any application. Get in touch for an initial no obligation chat!
As with any other type of mortgage there are many factors involved. It’s possible that you might be offered a lower holiday let mortgage rate.
The factors lenders will consider are:
- Your credit rating. If you have a poor credit rating it might still be possible to be offered a mortgage. However, the interest rate on your mortgage offer is likely to be higher than someone with a good credit rating.
- The size of your deposit. The larger your deposit typically means the lower the interest rates you are likely to be offered. You’ll need at least 20-25% deposit to start with, with rates improving up to a 40-50% deposit.
- The type of property. If the property you want to buy is non-standard, listed, or unique the higher your interest rate is likely to be. This is because lenders will see such properties as higher risk and potentially more difficult to sell on. For example, if the property has a flat roof or is in need of lots of repairs you might struggle to get a good offer.
We can help you navigate the holiday let mortgage landscape so if you’ve any queries, please get in touch.
Always contact your existing lender if you plan to rent out part or all of your property on Airbnb to tell them of your plans. They may want to know how many rooms will be available and for how many weeks a year. You might also have to prove that your original intention when taking out the mortgage was to live in the property and that your decision to list on Airbnb is a recent one. In most cases lenders will provide consent, for an arrangement fee.
However, some may decide to increase the interest rate on your mortgage. This happens if the lender thinks there’s an increased risk of damage to the property. They’re taking the long view. Foot traffic and wear and tear can make the property harder to sell on. If you don’t tell them what you are doing and they find out, they may force you to re-pay your mortgage, so it’s not worth the risk.
Don’t worry, we’ll help you work out the best solution for your plans and ensure you have the right mortgage, whatever happens.
