A consumer buy-to-let mortgage is when a person becomes an ‘accidental landlord’. This is due to circumstances, rather than intentional investment. This can happen in several situations: inheriting a property, moving abroad for work and leaving the house to be rented out, intending to sell but it is difficult to sell the property. These mortgages are regulated mortgages (unlike investment buy-to-let mortgages) and fall under the same regulations as residential mortgages.
