As buy to let mortgages rates have fallen, buy-to-let landlords need to beware of new bigger fees, which can substantially push up the cost of a mortgage, especially if they are only fixing or tracking for a short deal period. The biggest fees tend to be the ones that are are charged as a percentage of the loan but even flat fees can run to £2,000. 

According to thisismoney “the lowest rate on the buy-to-let market is 2.29 per cent from HSBC. It comes with a £1,999 fee. However you will need a 40 per cent deposit. The total cost on a £250,000 mortgage would be £13,447 for the deal term. For a longer term deal, Leeds Building Society has a five-year fixed rate at 3.69 per cent with a £999 fee for a 40 per cent deposit. A £250,000 mortgage would cost £47,124 over five years.”
