The Mortgage Lender launches £500,000+ buy-to-let mortgage rates
The Mortgage Lender (TML) has launched two buy-to-let rates for mortgages between £500,000 and £3 million.
The lender’s larger loan rates are available to landlords with a 25% deposit. There is a 0.50% arrangement fee for mortgages between £500k-£750k, rising to 0.75% for loans over £750,000.
TML's lowest five-year fix is 3.29% and it is available if you have a 30% deposit. After the fixed-rate, the mortgage reverts to LIBOR+ 5% and the APRC is 5.30%. The arrangement fee is 0.75% if the loan amount is over £750,000.
Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: “If you are looking for a buy-to-let mortgage below £1 million there is a wider choice of lenders offering incredibly cheap rates. The larger loan rates are still well priced but they are not quite so cheap especially if you are at a higher loan-to-value.”
The Mortgage Lender will cap the maximum loan size at £1,500,000 for Houses in Multiple Occupancy, and the rates are not available to first-time landlords.
