Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: "Our brokers have access to a selection of lenders offering £1 million+ mortgages and they offer cheaper rates and lower arrangement fees if you have a larger deposit.
"If your property has a strong rental income and you have a good salary, you are more likely to qualify for a low rate. However, Kent Reliance has one of the more generous buy-to-let rental stress test calculations especially at higher loan-to-values enabling landlords to secure larger loans."

Some mortgage lenders and private banks use an applicant’s personal income as well as the rent to provide larger mortgage loans. Trinity Financial has access to a host of banks including Barclays for Intermediaries and Metro Bank to secure more generous mortgages for those with larger incomes.
Many of the lenders are using completely different rental calculations to work out the maximum loan size, so the buy-to-let market is a lot more complicated than it used to be.
Even if a lender is offering a super-cheap rate, there is no guarantee landlords will qualify if the rental calculation is tight.
