Fleet Mortgages launches 5-year fixes and cuts rates

Buy-to-let specialist lender Fleet Mortgages has launched four 75% loan-to-value 5-year fixes in its standard range and cut prices on three limited company products.

In its standard range there’s a 3.39% product with a rental calculation of 125% at 5.5% and a 3.59% with a rental calculation of 125% at the initial rate. Both come with a 2% fee and a free valuation for properties valued up to and including £500,000 after which discounted valuation fee will apply.

Steve Cox, distribution director of Fleet Mortgages, said: “It’s apparent that a growing number of landlord borrowers are looking for rate certainty over a longer period of time and they are seeking this via 5-year deals.

“After consulting with our intermediary partners we have therefore introduced these new 75% LTV 5-year fixes for both standard and limited company borrowers, which include price cuts by 0.15% and offer greater choice in terms of rate, fee, rental calculation, plus three products also come with free valuations for those properties valued up to £500,000.

“Recent research shows that more landlords, certainly those who fit the professional/portfolio definition, want to add to portfolios over the next 12-18 months but they also want to know exactly what their mortgage costs will be over a longer term.

“With these products available for both purchase and remortgage, and with more flexible criteria around income, age, portfolio lending size, we believe there will be plenty to interest advisers’ buy-to-let clients with both these products and our entire range.”

Also, in its standard range there’s a 3.39% product with a rental calculation of 125% at 5.5% and a 3.59% with a rental calculation of 125% at the initial rate. Both come with a 1.75% fee.

Furthermore, as part of Fleet’s imited company range there’s a 3.49% product with a rental calculation of 125% at 5.5%, a fee of 1.5%, and a free valuation for properties valued up to and including £500,000 after which discounted valuation fee will apply.

There’s also a 3.59% product with a rental calculation of 125% at the initial rate and a fee of 1.5%; and a 3.49% product with a rental calculation of 125% at 5.5% and a fee of 1.25%.

The end dates for all the products is the 31 July 2024 and all new business now qualifies for product transfers at expiry of the initial fixed rate period. All products come with stepped early repayment charges.
