Mortgage Strategy - Lender ratings survey: The best in buy-to-let
Mortgage Strategy magazine reports the start of the year has seen a more bullish approach from buy-to-let lenders as they compete to win business. The ongoing challenges around affordability and the tight rental stress tests facing would-be investors mean lenders must be more inventive with their propositions.
Trinity Financial product and communications manager Aaron Strutt told Mortgage Strategy that NatWest has “A strong like-for-like proposition and cheap rates mean more of our brokers are using it for remortgages." Adding Santander "is gearing up for another big year by making improvements to its rental stress tests and easing some acceptance criteria, while offering decent rates and a good service."
