Landbay launches remortgage range
Specialist buy-to-let-lender Landbay has launched a brand new suite of five-year fixed rate remortgage products for loans between £250,000 and £500,000.
As November is traditionally a busy remortgage month Landbay has released five Limited Edition products to co-inside with expected demand.
LTVs are either 65% or 75% with a free valuation option on the standard remortgage products. In addition, the new range caters for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) and Multi-Unit Freehold Blocks (MUFB) of up to 6 bedrooms or units.
This new range has lower rates than Landbay’s core products of between 15 and 25 basis points (bps). It will sit alongside the core range, which is for loans starting from £30,000 up to £1.5m.
The new suite of remortgage products is as follows (price in brackets is the current pricing on the core range and equivalent reduction):
- Standard five-year fix at 65% LTV @ 2.95% – (3.14%) (-19 bps)
- Standard five-year 75% LTV @ 3.09% – (3.24%) (-15 bps)
- Standard five-year 75% LTV @ 3.09% + free valuation (3.24%) (-15 bps)
- Small HMO five-year 75% LTV @ 3.34% (3.59%) (-25bps)
- Small MUFB five-year 75% LTV @ 3.34% (3.59%) (-25bps)
Paul Brett, managing director, intermediaries at Landbay, commented: “We are targeting the mid-range of loans between £250,000 and £500,000 as there will be a large amount of remortgaging over the next few months in this price bracket. In particular, we expect to see an increase in demand for remortgaging of HMOs and MUFBs for loans of this size.
“Five-year fixed rates are very popular with BTL borrowers, especially portfolio landlords, as the affordability stress test that is applied is the pay rate. This starts at 2.95% in our new remortgage range – instead of having to apply a stress test of 5.5% for two or three-year fixed rate mortgages, as prescribed by the Prudential Regulatory Authority.”
