Mortgage Trust is lending to buy to let landlords again – after a three year break from the market.
The firm, a subsidiary of property investment specialist Paragon Mortgages, stopped lending in February 2008.
New mortgage packages include a two-year tracker at 3.99% and a two-year fixed deal at 4.99%, both up to 75% loan to value, for remortgages only.
Both loans have a fixed fee of £999 and free valuations and legal fees.
John Heron, a Mortgage Trust director, said: “Mortgage Trust is extremely well regarded within the intermediary community and has an excellent reputation for catering for simple buy-to-let cases.
“By utilising technology to a much greater extent in the application process via mton-line.co.uk, we will be giving an initial lending decision in minutes. This will deliver a quicker and more efficient process for intermediaries and their landlords.”
Rent cover is at 125% with interest charged at 5%.
Mortgage Trust mortgages are only available via brokers for single self-contained properties and are subject to fast-track agreement in principle.
