With over 150,000 sold every year by familiar high streets names, you could be forgiven for assuming the buy-to-let mortgage market is regulated.

However, finance for commercial purposes are in fact entirely unregulated buy-to-let mortgages. The lack of regulation may be a loss of comfort for many sitting upon several unregulated buy-to-let mortgages. After all, many property owners put their savings & personal homes on the line in search of the landlord dream. Be it as an extra income or a retirement plan, unregulated buy-to-let can appear enticing.
