John Heron (pictured), managing director – mortgages at Paragon, said: “This is a significant refresh of our portfolio and non-portfolio buy-to-let mortgage product range, designed to extend the choice and flexibility for landlords with portfolios varying in size and complexity.
“The competitive rates we offer, alongside fee-free products and our specialist underwriting capability, makes Paragon one of the first choices for portfolio and non-portfolio landlords.
“We also understand the valuable contribution our intermediary partners make in ensuring the right products are delivered to the right customers.
“Where a broker recommends a Paragon switch product and is proactively engaged in the process, we believe that it is appropriate that the intermediary is rewarded, which is why we’ve increased proc fees to 0.30%.”
In addition, Paragon has increased procuration fees on switch products from 0.25% to 0.30%. Further advance proc fees remain at 0.50%.
