Buy to Let
Many people are interested in purchasing a buy to let property. Normally this is as a straightforward investment but sometimes people see it as a way of getting on to the housing ladder before they are able to afford their own home. In some cases people get accommodation with their job or work abroad and don't need or want to own their own home just yet. Maybe you don't have a big enough deposit to buy a buy to let on your own and want to pool your resources, or perhaps you want to share the responsibilities of being a landlord with someone else.
Another major factor is that in almost all cases you have to own your own home to able to get a Buy to Let mortgage and therefore many people that don't own their own home at present need to get the help of a family member when buying a Buy to Let property.
