Mortgage for rental property

The option of letting your current home

If you already have a mortgage with ABN AMRO and you are moving house, and you want to keep your current home to rent it out, such as when you are buying a new home or moving in together, the Mortgage for rental property might interest you. Read the information below and run the calculation to see how it works out in your case.

The benefits and things to bear in mind: Mortgage for rental property

Benefits

  • As an existing ABN AMRO client, you can keep your current mortgage contract with just a few adjustments, so that you will not be charged the early repayment fee.
  • Remortgaging to a Mortgage for rental property, also known as a ‘consent-to-let mortgage’, does not require a trip to the notary.
  • The Mortgage for rental property has a long term of a maximum of 30 years.
  • If the home has an energy label A or B, you can borrow more, up to 80% of the market value when let. With a lower energy label (C, D, etc.), the maximum amount you can borrow is 75% of the market value when let.
  • A partially interest-only loan is also an option.

What to bear in mind

  • The Mortgage for rental property is subject to an interest rate markup.
  • If your current mortgage includes the National Mortgage Guarantee (NHG), this guarantee will cease to apply. This means that you will pay the interest rate without the National Mortgage Guarantee, which may be higher than your current rate.
  • Letting your property is sometimes subject to permission from the local authority or, if it is an apartment, the Owners’ Association.
  • The Mortgage for rental property cannot yet be used as a buy-to-let mortgage. If you do want to buy to let, take a look at our Maatwerkkrediet financing option

More about the Mortgage for rental property

The Mortgage for rental property is not intended for the following cases: 
  • If you are looking to build up a portfolio of more than two rental properties.
  • If you (if applicable) do not have permission from the local authority and/or Owners’ Association to let the property.

If you convert your ABN AMRO mortgage into a Mortgage for rental property, you will get specific advice. It is very important to us that you get good advice on the risks and other things to bear in mind with respect to your Mortgage for rental property. This is where our specific advice comes in. 

ABN AMRO will advise you on: 

  • The mortgage type(s) 
  • The maximum amount you can borrow
  • The monthly mortgage payments for your Mortgage for rental property
  • A few key risks and other things to bear in mind when taking out a Mortgage for rental property and the risks involved in letting a property, such as (temporary) rental voids. 
ABN AMRO will not advise you on:
  • The risks in case of death, incapacity for work, unemployment, divorce or separation, and retirement. These eventualities will, however, be addressed in the advice. We will assume that, when you decide to keep the rental property in these cases, the rental income will continue to be enough for you to make the monthly payments for the Mortgage for rental property.
  • Products other than the Mortgage for rental property, such as your insurance policies or investments.
  • We will not give you any advice either on whether or not letting your property is a good fit with your current situation.
  • All the risks and other things to bear in mind with respect to the Mortgage for rental property and letting a property that apply in your situation. While ABN AMRO will go into key risks and other things to bear in mind in its advice, the advice will not be fully customised to your specific situation. 

Mortgage advice is subject to a fee. You are not under any kind of obligation to take ABN AMRO’s advice. You can also go to an independent mortgage adviser for advice on your Mortgage for rental property.

The National Mortgage Guarantee does not cover mortgages on properties that were bought or retained to let. If you want to let your property anyway, the mortgage with National Mortgage Guarantee will have to be converted into one without the National Mortgage Guarantee. After remortgaging, the guarantee will cease to apply. This will have two important consequences: 

  1. You no longer get the special interest rate for mortgages with the National Mortgage Guarantee. Your new mortgage interest rate may, therefore, be higher than the current rate with the National Mortgage Guarantee.
  2. The terms and conditions of the National Mortgage Guarantee will no longer apply.

Besides the monthly payment for your Mortgage for rental property, there are (extra) costs involved in letting a property. These can be costs you pay in one go, or recurring costs. Examples of costs include the following: 

  • Buildings insurance.
  • Maintenance of the property.
  • The Owners’ Association fee when letting an apartment.
  • Costs incurred when tenants do not meet their obligations.
  • Taxes. 
Tip: it is a good idea to always maintain a financial buffer from which you can cover foreseen and unforeseen costs. In their advice, your mortgage adviser will also go into the costs, risks, and other things to bear in mind when letting a property and taking out a Mortgage for rental property.

No, it is not possible to take out a Mortgage for rental property in combination with a Euribor loan component. This is excluded.

No, if you move abroad, you are not allowed to remortgage to a Mortgage for rental property. Residing in the Netherlands is one of the criteria for conversion of your mortgage.
