    Buy-to-let borrowers

    Barclays offers fixed rate and tracker mortgages for buy-to-let borrowers. Borrowing terms and conditions will apply.

How do I apply for a Barclays mortgage?

You’ll typically need to complete an online Agreement in Principle first. If you’re buying a home using Help to Buy or a shared ownership scheme, you should instead book an appointment with a Barclays mortgage adviser.

You can apply for a Barclays mortgage either online or an in-branch appointment.

If you have an appointment, you’ll need to prepare for it by gathering supporting documents like a photo ID, recent proof of address, and proof of income. Barclays will call you before the meeting to check you have everything.

On average, it usually takes between four to six weeks to get a mortgage application approved.

Getting a mortgage in principle can help to give you a better idea of how much you could borrow from Barclays. It’s quick and easy to do this online, and it won’t affect your credit score.

You’ll need to say how much you want to borrow, plus your income and any outgoings, to get an immediate mortgage agreement in principle.

You can get in touch with Barclays mortgages by:

  • Phone – Call 0333 202 7580 to speak to a Barclays mortgage expert. Lines are open 7am-8pm Monday to Friday, and 7am-5pm at weekends

  • In person – You can visit a branch near you to speak to a mortgage adviser. To book an appointment, call 0333 202 7573. Lines are open 7am-8pm Monday to Friday and 7am-5pm at weekends

If you’re looking for a mortgage quote, call 0800 197 1081 (lines are open 7am-8pm Monday to Friday and 7am-5pm at weekends).

And if you’re worried about your mortgage payments and require help, call them on 0333 202 7407 (lines are open 8am-8pm Monday to Thursday, 8am-6pm on Fridays, and 9am-1pm on Saturdays).

If your bank goes bust and you have a mortgage with them, it won’t be cancelled. You’ll still owe money to the lender, and its charge over your home will still stand.

Your existing debt would be sold on to another bank or building society in an administration process. You’d then owe the new bank the money.

In the event that your bank goes bust, you should continue to make your monthly payments as normal. You should also be given advice on your situation and what you can do.

However, things are slightly different if you have a particular type of offset mortgage. If the amount held in savings exceeds the mortgage debt, the balance would be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS): up to £85,000 or £170,000 for a joint account.

Whether you qualify for a mortgage with Barclays depends on many factors, such as your finances, credit history, income, expenditure, deposit, and any debts.
