The rent you pay has to cover your landlords mortgage. Doh.

It often will, but it doesn't have to.

If I buy and rent out a £200k house to provide an additional pension when retired, my topping up the mortgage after your rent would be a very cheap savings scheme for me, as your rent is effectively paying in as well.

I'm not a landlord, I have only half a house.
