Buy-to-Let Mortgages

If you are purchasing a property which you are planning to let then you will require one of our Buy-to-Let mortgages.

Our Buy-to-Let mortgages are for anyone purchasing up to three properties which they plan to let, click ‘Full Details’ on the products below to find out more about the full terms and conditions of these mortgages. (We support the CML Buy-to-Let: Statement of Practice).

Your mortgage is secured on your home. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Please note: as of close of business on Friday 18th September, Darlington Building Society are amending our minimum loan size for new mortgage applications to £100,000. We will consider applications for a minimum loan of £25,000 from applicants where the postcode of the mortgaged property is within the Society’s operating postcode area: DL, TS, YO, DH, SR & HG. The minimum loan size applies only to new mortgage applications and does not impact existing members seeking additional borrowing, product transfers or any other servicing based requests.
