Thinking about buying a property to rent? Use our calculator to work out the minimum
you need to charge to ensure a sufficient profit after mortgage costs.
The rent you can charge as a landlord will determine how much you can borrow on
a buy to let mortgage. It’s therefore important to check that the rent you need
is achievable before applying for your mortgage.
In reality, the amount your tenant will have to pay depends on a number of factors
including the type and location of your property, its condition and the state of
the rental market in your area – a letting agent will help you work out how much
rent to charge.
In the meantime, our calculator will give you a guide on how much rent you’ll need
to get, based on the deposit you have and the buy to let mortgage you need. You’ll
then be able to check whether this amount is attainable on the property you’re looking

All you need to do is put the purchase price of the property into the top bar, either
by typing the figure in the box to your right or by using the slider.
Once you have completed the first step, simply enter the amount of deposit you have
to put down. And you’re done! The final figure shows the minimum amount of rent
you’ll need to cover the mortgage payments. You can vary both the purchase price
and the size of your deposit to see how different figures affect the rent required.
Remember that this calculator is a guide – when getting a buy to let mortgage, the
lender will require its own assessment of how much rent can be charged.
