CSF and Together launch complex BTL product
Crystal Specialist Finance (CSF) and Together have launched a complex buy-to-let (BTL) product for landlords and property investors currently being overlooked by mainstream and specialist lenders.
Properties incorporated into the offering include holiday lets, houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs), student lets, multi-unit freehold blocks (MUFBs) and development exits, as well as others which have been difficult to find finance for during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The offering is available for individual or limited companies, portfolios, first-time landlords and first-time buyers.
Customers with bounce back loans and payment holidays, plus ex-pats and non-UK nationals, are also accepted.
Product highlights include rates from 4.99% up to 70% loan-to-value (LTV), maximum loan £750,000 (£1m by referral) with ICR for Limited Company and Basic Tax Rate at 125% and 145% for Higher Tax Rates and Top Slice allowed, where required.
Jason Berry (pictured), group sales and marketing director of CSF, said: “Together’s latest buy-to-let product range not only addresses lending requests which are becoming more prevalent, but also provides some much needed options for landlords and property investor customers who have seen criteria tighten since the start of the year.”
Sundeep Patel, head of intermediary sales at Together, added: “We are delighted to reinforce our partnership with the highly experienced team at Crystal to include our new range of buy-to-let mortgage products.
“The complexities which borrowers often demonstrate mean this product, as well as others we have recently launched, could be a perfect fit.
“Often a high level of expertise is required to place and administer this type of case, so alongside the CSF team, we provide underwriting resource so quick and definitive decisions can be made for brokers.”
