How much rent should I charge?

What might determine the amount of rent you need to charge?

Size of the Loan

The amount you can borrow is normally linked to the rental income you expect to receive, though lenders often expect rental income to exceed the mortgage payment by a about a quarter to account for the extra costs involved with letting, including insurance, maintenance, agent fees, and periods of vacancy between tenants.

Property Type and Area

You need to find the right balance when setting the level of rent on your property. If you set the rent amount too low, you are unlikely to maximise the investment on the property. Setting the level too high, on the other hand, risks pricing yourself out of the market and leaving the property untenanted.

As always, we recommend that you seek professional advice if you are unsure which type of mortgage is right for you and that all of the information provided above is for use as an overview only and should not be the basis for your mortgage decision.
