This deal from Pink Home Loans is a fixed-rate buy-to-let mortgage at 5.39 per cent until April 30, 2007.
Charcol product development manager Elliot Nathan believes this product stands out from the crowd and will be very popular among would-be landlords.
He says: “The rate, at 5.39 per cent, is highly competitive and the loan is available up to 85 per cent of valuation. Another great feature is that the rental calculation is calculated on the original pay rate and not at a standard variable rate.” He also likes the fact that rental income must be at least 125 per cent of the mortgage repayments, not the usual 130 per cent minimum.
Asked what he dislikes about the mortgage, Nathan can think of nothing major to complain about. However, he rates the product low on flexibility. He concludes: “I have nothing else to add other than this is a great deal.”
