Metro Bank for Intermediaries is the latest lender to launch into the Limited Company Buy-to-Let market to compete with the other providers targeting landlords. 

Landlords will need a 25% deposit to qualify for Metro Bank's limited company mortgages, although they will not need a minimum income to qualify. The income requirement is subject to rental void plausibility checks and at least one director receiving an income other than rent.

Metro Bank’s limited company buy-to-let mortgages are available to older borrowers up to age 85. A portfolio landlord can also have a maximum of 10 properties with Metro Bank or 10 properties in total.

Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: “The Mortgage Works, Precise and Paragon are probably the biggest lenders in the limited company space so there is a fair bit of competition.

"Buy-to-let rates tend to vary between lenders. There are high arrangement fees and low rate options. For example, one lender has a sub-5% fixed rate but a huge 5% arrangement fee. Although lenders like The Nottingham have slightly higher limited company rates, but fees range between £999 and £4,999.

Metro Bank specifies it accepts three limited company SIC codes including:  

  • 68100 - Buying and selling of own real estate.
  • 68209 - Letting and operating of own or leased real estate.
  • 68320 - Management of real estate.
