The number of sub 1% interest rate mortgages is falling, according to data from Moneyfacts. Nottingham Building society hiked rates on some of its mortgages by just over 1 percentage point. The Co-operative banks mortgage division Platform used to charge a record low .79% and now charges 1.08 as standard. Buy to let loans are still viable but it depends on the consumer being aware of the options out there.
Barclays increased their three-year fixed-rate mortgage offering from 0.99pc to 1.1pc with the two-year fixed offer increasing from 0.86pc to 0.91pc. NatWest and HSBC have followed with increases but still straddling the 1% area. While offers are still reasonably low, there are signs that it will not remain this way.
Meanwhile Landbay, who have the broadest range of buy to let loans, list their rates as follows:
The Standard Property is offered with 75% LTV for up to £1.5m at 3.24%.
The New Build Standard Property is offered at 65% LTV for Up to £1.5m at 3.24%. Then,
New Build Standard Property – 75% LTV – Up to £1m at 3.34%
Small HMO & MUFB – 75% LTV – Up to £1.5m at 3.59 %
New Build Small HMO & MUFB – 75% LTV – Up to £1m at 3.69%
Small Portfolio Landlord Standard Property – 75% LTV – Up to £1.5m at 3.14%
Professional landlords with growing portfolios wanting to invest in larger properties that need to take out larger loans to do so, according to Paul Brett, Landbay’s managing director. “There has also been an increase in trading limited companies investing in HMO and MUFBs. This type of accommodation attracts higher yields for landlords and even if there are vacancies within the property there is always income from the other tenants.”
