Buy-To-Let Rental Calculator

This buy-to-let rental calculator helps you evaluate the profitability of a rental property investment. By entering different parameters such as property price, annual rent, management fees, mortgage interest rate, mortgage principal, and other annual expenses, you will get the net annual income and return on investment (ROI) percentage.

How to Use It:

  • Enter the property’s purchase price in pounds (£).
  • Input the expected annual rent from the property in pounds (£).
  • Specify the annual property management fees as a percentage.
  • Enter the mortgage interest rate as a percentage of the mortgage principal.
  • Provide the mortgage principal amount in pounds (£).
  • Mention any other annual expenses related to the property in pounds (£).
  • Click on the “Calculate” button to see the results.

How It Calculates:

The calculator first deducts the management fees, mortgage interest, and other expenses from the annual rent to find the net annual income. It does this by multiplying the management fees percentage with the annual rent, and the mortgage interest rate percentage with the mortgage principal. It then divides the net annual income by the property price and multiplies by 100 to get the ROI percentage.


  • The calculator does not account for property appreciation or depreciation over time.
  • It assumes all values remain constant throughout the year.
  • Taxes, insurance, and unexpected repairs or vacancies are not included in other annual expenses and should be considered separately.
