Four new five-year fixed rates launched for landlords
Paragon Bank has launched four new five-year fixed rate mortgages to its buy-to-let portfolio range, and they include a green incentive.
The specialist buy-to-let lender said the deals were available to portfolio landlords – those with four or more mortgaged properties – operating as individual landlords, limited companies or limited liability partnerships.
The mortgages are available to landlords with a 30% and 25% equity stake, and include an incentive for more energy-efficient properties.
For landlords purchasing or remortgaging properties with Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) rated A-C, rates start at 2.95% if borrowing at 70% loan-to-value (LTV) and 3.00% at 75% LTV.
For homes which are rated below EPC C, rates are priced at 3.05% on the 70% LTV product, rising to 3.10% on loans of 75% of the property’s value.
All four mortgages are offered with free valuations and £750 cashback and the specialist lender has also removed the £100,000 minimum loan requirement from selected products.
Moray Hulme, director for mortgage sales said: “Our recently refreshed product range has proven popular, suggesting that landlords have been actively are modifying their portfolios, whether that be boosting PRS stock through purchasing additional properties or taking advantage of the current low-rate environment to get a good remortgage deal.
“To support this, we’ve added four new products, again offering preferential rates to incentivise energy efficient properties, and also removed the £100,000 minimum loan on mortgages where percentage product fee is applicable, providing more flexibility for investors.”
