What could go wrong if I let a property on a standard domestic mortgage?

I’m considering buying a property to rent out. Buy to let mortgages ask for ridiculous deposits and are apparently quite hard to come by. What would be the pitfalls of doing it on an ordinary mortgage? I’m specifically wondering about the validity of any insurance I might take out, and also what would happen if the mortgage company found out? All and any ideas and responses appreciated.
