Kent Reliance Buy to Let have withdrawn their minimum income criteria of £25,000 even for 85% Loan to Value.
However this does not mean there is no criteria as a borrower would have to demonstrate a “reasonable” income and be able to prove it with payslips or 3 years accounts if self employed ie this is not non status.
It does mean that if an application stacks up on rental income and the borrower looks like they will be able to afford their ongoing commitments then Kent Reliance will consider the mortgage rather than just declining straight away as before if income was even £1 below 25,000.

Andrew Ferguson who is Head of Sales and Distribution for Kent Reliance, said “we have become increasingly confident in the BTL sector and having examined the way in which our book has performed, allied to the growing evidence of the strength of the rental market, we felt that insistence on a minimum income requirement was becoming less and less relevant as a measure of affordability. We shall however keep it under review.”

The amount you can borrow on both of the above products is Stress Tested at 125% interest cover on a Notional rate of 5%. In short that means you can borrow 192 times the monthly rental income.
