85% LTV at 110% interest cover Buy to Let – InterBay Commercial Buy to Let News, Landlord News, Latest Articles

InterBay Commercial part of OneSavings Bank plc group have introduced a new Buy to Let range and of real interest for the market is an 85% Loan to Value product stress tested at 110% interest cover on the pay rate.

This means that the amount you can borrow  is worked out by the monthly rental income needing to be 110% of the monthly interest only payment subject to the 85% maximum LTV.

E.g. max loan = monthly rental income x 12, divided by pay rate %, divided by 110%

Therefore in this example: max loan = rent x12, divided by 6.1%, divided by 110%

or as an easy calculation max loan = monthly rent x 178.83 (this is very competitive considering the high 85% LTV)

The product:

  • 6.1% Libor Tracker = 3 month Libor (min rate 0.75%) plus 5.35% for the term
  • Maximum 85% LTV
  • 2% arrangement fee (additional 1% fee if loan below £75,000)
  • HMOs and New build flats maximum 75% LTV
  • Interest Only available up to a maximum 10 year term, but available for longer with a 0.5% rate loading
  • Early repayment charge 3% for first 5 years and 1% for the life of the loan
  • Minimum 2 years BTL experience (no First time landlords)
  • Available to individuals, limited companies, LLPs and Partnerships
  • Max loan size £1million

This now gives an alternative for Buy to Let investors at 85% LTV if your circumstances do not fit criteria for Kent Reliance who offer a similar product at 4.89% two year discount, with a 2.5% fee and you can borrow 192 times monthly rental income. However the reversion rate after 2 years is currently 6.58% so may not be as good value over a longer term if rates stay low.

I have been told that Interbay use a more flexible commercial approach to Buy to Let lending which could be an advantage in more complicated situations.
