Aldermore is today increasing its maximum LTV for buy-to-let products from 75 per cent to 80 per cent.
The lender is also raising its maximum buy-to-let portfolio size from three properties and a lending ceiling of £1m to five properties and a ceiling of £2m, as well as reducing its buy-to-let reversion rates by as much as 0.5 per cent.
Aldermore managing director of residential mortgages Charles Haresnape says: “We are very comfortable with the way our buy-to-let portfolio is performing and feel the time is now right to strengthen our range.
“These enhancements to both criteria and rates will ensure Aldermore’s residential buy-to-let products are amongst the most competitive available and I have no doubt they will be popular with both brokers and their clients.”
Mortgages for Business managing director David Whittaker says the new products are competitive and have some unusual features such as flat fees.
He says: “It is good to see Aldermore in the 80 per cent LTV buy-to-let space, which is gradually becoming more competitive.”
