Buy to let depositMake Text Bigger
I would like to ask why lenders require buy to let landlords to have a 25% deposit whereas residential borrowers only 10%?
I would assume, if both a BTL landlord and residential purchaser defaulted, it would be more risky for a bank to get back their funds [loan] via from a residential purchaser as it would have a higher LTV.
So what is the reasoning for this?
