A new buy to let lender has entered the market called Keystone
They specialise in buy to let mortgages for Single Purpose Vehicle limited companies, HMOs and Multi-Unit properties. This part of the market was largely exited by lenders after the credit crunch and it is great to see some competition for more niche criteria giving Landlords a greater range of options.
Important Keystone criteria
Maximum number of 4 directors for limited company applications (must be a single purpose vehicle not trading limted company)
No minimum income required, but must have 12 months employment history or trading as self employed for 2 years or be in receipt of a personal/company pension.
No First time landlords accepted, but no mamximum number of buy to let properties
Maximum Loan to Value 75% and minimum property value of £50,000
Products start at 5.23% for a 3 year fixed and are stressed tested at 130% on the pay rate or 100% of 7.7%
