From your first enquiry to your first tenants, our Buy-to-Let purchase plans work in a similar way to a conventional mortgage.
Why finance your Buy-to-Let with us?
We provide a range of Buy-to-Let property finance solutions for UK residents, UK Expats, International residents and UK registered corporate entities looking to purchase or refinance residential investment property across England and Wales.
Our Buy-to-Let purchase plans offer you a Shariah-compliant alternative to a mainstream Buy-to-Let mortgage, with competitive rates and an ethical approach. You can use it just like a conventional mortgage to buy or refinance your property.
With a Buy-to-Let purchase plan you buy the property jointly with us - your deposit is your stake, and we fund the rest. Once all your payments are made, you acquire the property and the deed of the property transfers to you. You are free to sell the property any time, and there are no early payment charges.
Our Buy-to-Let services include:
- Portfolios welcome – no limit on the number of properties (maximum finance £5m)
- Finance available to individuals (employed, self-employed and contractors) and UK registered corporate entities which include Limited Companies, LLPs (Limited Liability Partnerships) and SPVs (Special Purpose Vehicles)
- Day one refinances from cash and bridging purchases permitted
- Green Finance Products are available to both new and existing UK resident customers which carry a discounted rate of 0.1% off the standard product rate (terms apply, see eligibility below)
- Finance available for Houses and Flats (including new build)
- Finance permitted for HMOs (Houses in Multiple Occupation) and MUFBs (Multi-Unit Freehold Blocks) with no upper limit on rooms or flats. (Please note that HMO finance is not available to International residents)
- Available to first time landlords where existing property ownership is not a requirement
- Finance provided up to 80% of the property value up to £2m, up to 75% between £2-3m, and up to 70% of the property value between £3-5m, over a maximum 30-year term for UK residents or 25-year term for UK Expats and International residents
- Personal income can be used for rental top ups where a shortfall exists (terms apply; not available to International residents)
- No early payment charges on any product

– Junaid A, LondonApply for Buy-to-Let products and Contact Us
“Excellent communication and service. Was always updated at every stage. A specific thanks to the adviser who was always on hand to answer and inform me every step of the way.”
– Farham P, LeicesterApply for Buy-to-Let products and Contact Us
“I approached Gatehouse Bank as the products aligned to my personal values. I worked with the adviser who is a true asset to the Bank, communication was very prompt and detailed and the adviser was well versed with the products. I completed the purchase of an auction property. The adviser was able to advise, guide and help to progress forward my application to ensure I completed in time. The product I chose was for a multi-unit purchase in a limited company, as an expat working and living outside the UK during the COVID19 pandemic, so my case was not a straight forward finance. I will be using Gatehouse Bank again.”

“I recently got a BTL product with Gatehouse Bank. The adviser was of great help in explaining the process and was available to answer all queries. The process did take a while to complete, so don't be afraid to inquire about processing times so you know the timescales you are working to.”
