    New BTL mortgage products - May 2017



    An up-dating round up of new mortgage products and ranges launching throughout May 2017.

    Pepper Homeloans has announced that they have launched a limited edition buy-to-let 5-year fixed rate of 2.98% with a rental calculation based on the pay rate.

    According to the lender, the new product will be 2.98% fixed for 5-years (reverting to Libor + 4%), max LTV: 75% on loans between £25,001 and £1m.

    Meanwhile ...

    BREAKING NEWS - Furness Building Society (available via http://www.PTFS.co.uk) has altered its holiday let criteria so borrowers can use it themselves for up to 90 days per year.

    News source - http://www.mortgageintroducer.com/furness-holiday-let-investors-can-now-use-homes/

    "The society said the change will make it to stand out from the crowd.

    Euan Ballantyne, head of products, said: “Furness is an established mortgage provider of holiday let mortgages and we think that changing our criteria will appeal to a wide range of brokers who are looking to place this type of business within England, Wales and Scotland.

     We must utilise our empty homes

    “We think it makes sense that if you own a holiday let property you’re more than likely to want to use it for your own holidays so we’ve removed this restriction from our criteria.

    “We’ve got a range of products up to 75% LTV and coupled with our approach to an affordability based calculation when assessing cases we think we’ve got an attractive proposition.”

    Furness’ holiday let products are available on an interest-only or repayment basis while applicants have to own their own homes.
    As it stands an initial rate of 2.80% for two years is available followed by a variable rate of 5.29%."

    Can you clarify what you mean by rental calculation based on  'pay rate' please. It's not something I've heard before.


    Thanks

    Cheryl, the rental calculations that you may have seen banded around mention something like the need for the rent amount having to equal 145% x 5.5% of the mortgage payment.

    The second figure is the stress test rate to encompass potential tax charges affecting cashflow and affordability.  This high rate has affected how much BTL'ers can borrow.  A pay rate stress test of 2.98% means that ultimately you can borrow more, based on the same rent amount being paid.

    Call us on 01206 654 444 for further specific and personalised quotes to see what you are actually eligible for.

    Barclays launches new BTL and residential ranges

    (source > https://www.mortgagestrategy.co.uk/barcl...ial-range)

    Barclays is launching new residential and buy-to-let mortgage products and exclusive offers for existing mortgage customers.

    The lender is bringing in buy-to-let purchase and remortgage rates including a 1.99 per cent 3-year fixed rate loan at 60 per cent LTV with a £1,950 fee.

    The firm is also introducing a 2.59 per cent three-year fixed mortgage at 60 per cent LTV with no fee.

    Other lenders, rates and products also available!

    Specialist lending brand Keystone Property Finance has added a new three-year fixed rate buy-to-let mortgage deal to its Classic Range. Priced at just 3.69% at 65% loan-to-value (LTV), it is now the lowest priced product in the selection.

    This rate is being offered to landlords regardless of whether they choose to invest personally or through a limited company. And, unlike many buy-to-let lenders, it is available to trading limited companies as well as Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs).

    Perhaps crucially for many investors using corporate structures, Keystone does not impose an upper age limit to qualify for finance.

    Barclays is launching a new buy-to-let mortgage range and exclusive offers for existing mortgage customers, while it has also announced that it is increasing its maximum buy-to-let loan size on all 75% loan-to-value (LTV) products to £1m, as well as cutting existing buy-to-let rates.

    The lender is hoping to win more business from landlords with its new buy-to-let purchase and remortgage rates, including a 1.99% three-year fixed rate loan at 60% LTV with a £1,950 fee.

    Barclays is also bringing in a 2.59% three-year fixed mortgage at 60% LTV with no fee.

    The firm is introducing a £250 cash-back option to replace the free legal option on its ‘Switch and Save’ package.

    A new lender has launched in the buy-to-let space, ditching the traditional loan-to-value (LTV) method of mortgage finance.

    Instead, the new “productless” property lender, Octane Capital, says it will price each individual loan according to the “real” risk of the borrower assessed by their underwriters.

    Octane Capital says it will provide bridging finance as well as buy-to-let loans for up to three years on properties worth a minimum of £100,000.

    It will consider buy-to-let loans for individual landlords and companies, and the rental income will need to cover 100% of the pay rate.
