Buy to Let

We have temporarily restricted our lending criteria, for the latest updates and essential information during the COVID-19 pandemic read our FAQs.

Important information: your case and the stamp duty holiday

Ahead of the extended stamp duty holiday deadline on 30 June please be aware we cannot guarantee your client that their mortgage will complete in time to be eligible. This particularly applies for purchase applications and any remortgages where additional borrowing for any onward purchase is required. You must ensure your client is aware of this.

For information about the stamp duty holiday and rates which will apply from 1 July please click here to visit gov.uk.

More options for your landlord clients.

We can help with purchases and remortgages for properties being let out to tenants, for clients with small portfolios rather than commercial investors. Our discount rate products offer topslicing, so for cases not meeting rental cover requirements we're able to use personal income to make up the shortfall. Whilst we won't lend on BTL to first time buyers we will consider applicant who have previously held a mortgage.

We require 145% rental cover when calculating affordability. For transitional cases, we use 125%.

We require a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) confirming that the property meets the minimum required standards for energy efficiency (rated E or above).
