How to buy investment property in the UK

Investing in UK Property can be very rewarding for British Nationals and non-nationals. When buying a property, you can consider paying cash or obtain a mortgage.  Taking a mortgage to buy may be a good idea for tax purposes.

So, if you’re mortgage interest payments equal £1,000 a month, you’ll need to be earning £1,250 in anticipated rental income.
