Can I buy to let as a first time buyer?

Yes, you can get a Buy to Let as a First-time buyer, but the number of lenders you can use are restricted, but it can be done. The criteria on this is very strict as generally they want a 25% deposit and you need to be earning enough money to be able to purchase the property yourself on a residential mortgage. An example of this is if you were earning £25000 and you wished to borrow £100000 then this may be possible but if you earn £25000 and wish to borrow £250000 then the lender will not be able to help.
