I wondered if anyone would be able offer me some advice. IÂ´m looking to get myself on the property ladder in the area I am from (North East London / Essex). However, I am currently posted away from the UK, but cannot afford the deposit required for a buy to let property (60 LTV is required), athough I have agood deposit. Has anyone had experience of buying a property with an owner occupier mortgage and then getting permission to rent? Is this feasable and did you experience any major problems? In addition is there a particular mortgage lender that anyone would recommend for doing this. For example the woolwich informed me that they would only allow me to rent the property for 2 years before I would be required to switch to a buy to let mortgage. Thank you in advance for any help you could give me.
