Please note, our standard buy-to-let lending criteria also applies.

In addition to the normal documents you need to submit as part of your mortgage application, i.e. identity and income verification, we also need portfolio landlords to provide us with some supporting information. Our mortgage advisors will explain what we need, when we need it and how to send it to us. You can download copies of these documents here:
