Product key features

Who's the product for?

You must be aged 21 or over and the term can’t go past your 85th birthday. You must also earn at least £20,000 and own your own residential property. If you’re a self-employed professional landlord, we’ll accept rental income as your source of income.

Experienced landlords and self-employed

If you’ve currently got a buy to let property, or you’ve had one in the last 12 months we’ll happily accept you as an experienced landlord. For basic rate tax-payers, expected rental income must cover 125% of the mortgage payment amount on a rate of 5.5% and this increases to 130% of the mortgage payment amount on a rate of 5.5% for higher rate taxpayers.

You can capital raise additional funds for improving the property you’re buying or to increase your portfolio.

First time landlords

If you’re a first time landlord, your current home must be valued more than your proposed rental property. If you’re a basic rate tax-payer then rental income must cover 140% of the mortgage payment amount on a rate of 5.5%. For higher rate taxpayers, rental income coverage increases to 145% of the mortgage payment amount on a rate of 5.5%.

Portfolio size

If your portfolio is less than four mortgaged buy to let properties when the mortgage completes then we can help. We don't have a limit on the overall portfolio size, but a maximum limit of £1million held on mortgage with us does apply.

A mortgage of £100,000 payable over 25 years on a five year fixed rate until 30 September 2024, currently 2.69% and then our BTLVR, currently 5.44% for the remaining term would require an initial payment of £235.03 followed by 37 monthly payments of £227.53 and 262 monthly payments of £460.14.

The total amount payable would be £230,859.32 made up of the mortgage amount plus interest (£130,709.32) with an arrangement fee of £1,499, a telegraphic transfer fee of £25 and mortgage exit fees of £125.
