Additional information

    All mortgages are subject to status and eligibility criteria.

    Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

    You should always think carefully before purchasing a buy-to-let property. The value of a property is a matter of opinion and not a matter of fact, not all properties will grow in value or provide sufficient income to cover all your associated costs. You will be responsible for your costs even if you do not have a tenant. Property can also be difficult to sell and you may not be able to sell quickly if you need to do so.

    Mortgages on UK properties may not be available to residents of all countries.
