Stroud & Swindon expands BTL range

Stroud & Swindon Building Society has expanded its buy-to-let range with four new buy-to-let mortgages.

It claims these products are ideal for BTL investors looking to protect their portfolios against further interest rate rises.

Sales director Paul Chafer says: “As part of our new portfolio of mortgages, we are delighted to be able to offer so many new buy-to-let products.

“With new fixed rate, tracker and discount deals available, our landlords have a wide selection of products to choose from. In addition, all of these mortgages are relatively short term so if the market does change substantially, property investors can quickly move to more competitive deals.”

A report published this morning by the CIPD (CIPD Employee Outlook March 2015) provides yet more interesting data to the changing landscape of retirement planning. It should be remembered that we are in a period of genuine flux here given that the default retirement age was scrapped three years ago, and new pension freedoms come online in April.
