Buying a buy-to-let

What happens when buying a BTL property? Let’s run through how it works and how we can help below; or call us on 0115 8284914 or email

  • How much you can borrow?

    Before you look for your new investment property, it's important to know what you can borrow for your BTL. Speak with a member of our team at Lime and we'll be able to help you create a plan for your application. This includes things such as rental income required, legal costs, surveys, mortgage fees etc.

  • Choosing a suitable property

    The fun part begins! Now you know how much you can afford, you can hit the web to find a property to rent out within your budget and speak your advisor at Lime to see if it's a match for your circumstances. If it's all ok, make an offer!

  • Make your application

    Once we've got everything in order for you, we'll make the application on your behalf to one of our many lenders; including those not available on the high-street.

  • The legal stuff

    Once the valuation has been done and a mortgage offer received, your solicitor will conduct all of the searches and legal work. That includes deposit transfer, exchange and completion day. It also involves liaising with the other solicitors if you are involved in a property chain.

  • Put it on the market to rent!

“Highly recommended”

I would highly recommend Lime Financial. Charlotte was very informative and explained everything extremely well. She put my mind at ease straightaway and any worries I had we talked them through. She has kept me up to date consistently and helped with various different products such as buildings and contents insurance as well as life time cover. Thank you Charlotte!

“Would defintely use again.”

My fixed rate was coming to an end on my current mortgage which meant that my monthly payments were going to increase substantially. Charlotte helped me find a new deal with a new lender and saved me a considerable amount of money on my monthly payments which is never a bad thing! The process and communication from start to finish was amazing I was kept in the loop the whole way and didn't have to do a great deal as she the hard work for me.


“Would recommend 100%”

Friendly, well explained at every step of the way. No pressure discussion and recommendation that was perfectly suitable


“Exceptional service”

Exceptional service from Charlotte at Lime Financial every step of the way through my mortgage application. Charlotte always gives you solutions instead of problems and was fantastic with her communication from start to finish, so I was always up to date with where things were at with the application. I'd highly recommend Lime for their efficient, slick and friendly service.


“First class service”

Words can’t describe how much Charlotte has done for myself and husband. Absolutely gone above and beyond to help us remortgage, step by step and always so patient and positive. Thank goodness we found lime, they got us out of a pickle that’s for sure. Can’t recommend Lime and Charlotte enough.
