With buy to let mortgage, you can borrow money for property which you then rent out.
It works in much the same way as a regular mortgage, with variable, fixed or tracker interest rates and a range of loan-to-value options.
A buy to let does tend to cost more than a mortgage on your home, both in the interest rate you'll face and the amount of upfront deposit you'll need. But while it might not make you your millions, you could get a tidy boost to your income if you can charge more for rent each month than what your mortgage payments come to.
As a general rule, the banks will want you to prove that you can recoup around a third more than your costs before they offer you a deal.
Like with any investment, there are risks. If something happens to make rent prices slide then you could face yourself having to meet any shortfall out of your own pocket. Therefore, you'll have to do research into where you buy to make sure you are investing in an upcoming area where the value will rise, not fall.
You've also got to make sure that you can cover any repair costs that you will be liable for as a landlord and be prepared for the possibility that you may face times without tenants - and that means no rent.
But, with a few savvy decisions, you can definitely stand to profit from a buy to let.
