The author discusses how buy-to-let mortgage products can benefit landlords. Landlords should keep in mind that buy-to-let mortgages are commercial propositions because interest rate increases will strain them if income does not cover expenditure. However, sensible lending will ensure they do not overextend themselves. They can choose from various buy-to-let products including self-certification, first-time buyers, foreign investors, adverse credit, house of multiple occupation, builders' deposit schemes, and blocks of flats.
