Buy-to-let is a type of loan you may come across in real estate lending. Buy-to-let projects aim to generate profit by investing in property and leasing it to tenants. As an investor, you will earn profit from monthly rents from tenants and the potential appreciation of property value. Such deals tend to be long-term (usually 5+ years), low-risk and low-return.
