Shawbrook Bank who specialise on Buy to Let, Commercial, Semi-commercial and Bridging products have opened up criteria and improved products in light of the recent changes to Stamp duty.
Shawbrook anticipate the commercial market is likely to attract increased demand from investors looking to spread their risk across different types of property investment rather than focusing on purely residential.
Sales and Marketing Director for Shawbrook Commercial, KarenBennett said: “These changes form a key part of our ongoing commitment to service delivery and product improvements, with a great deal of research and thought informing our decision making. It’s been a challenging yet rewarding period for all Shawbrook teams, with these enhancements to commercial and semi-commercial following recent updates to our short term criteria.
We hope that our Broker Partners recognise the benefits to their clients that these updates will provide.
