BM revamps BTL and self-cert ranges

BM Solutions has today launched a number of new products across its buy-to-let, self-cert and mainstream ranges.

Its BTL range includes a two-year product, which tracks the base rate at -0.01 per cent for two years, with a £599 arrangement fee. Other BTL products include a two-year tracker at base rate +0.09 per cent which comes with a valuation refund (maximum £490).

The self-cert range includes a two year tracker, currently at 5.19 per cent with 90 per cent loan to value available, while the mainstream range sees the addition of two new products, including one tracking the base rate for two years, at -0.81 per cent.

BM head of sales and marketing Chris Pearson says: “This product launch sees some excellent new rates being introduced across a number of our ranges. BM Solutions is supporting brokers by kicking off 2007 with some great deals. I am sure brokers will welcome these new deals, as will their clients.”
