"We know that brokers are looking at different ways to make deals work for their clients, trying to find the best balance between rates, fees and loan amounts, all within affordability constraints"
Paragon Bank has announced that it has expanded its range of buy-to-let products for portfolio landlords with the launch of new limited edition five-year fixed rate products with starting rates of 6.45% and fixed fees from £995.
According to the lender, rates on the five-year fixed-rate mortgages, available at up to 75% loan-to-value, are priced at 6.45% with a £2,995 fee and maximum loan size of £2 million or 6.54% with a £995 fee and £500,000 maximum loan.
The products are suitable for portfolio landlords financing single self-contained properties that fall into EPC bands A-C, while rates for homes with lower energy efficiency ratings are priced 5bps higher.
Paragon is also offering similar mortgages for HMOs, with the £2995 fee option priced at 6.70% and rates on the £995 fee product set at 6.79%.
Interest Coverage Ratios are calculated in line with initial rates. All products include free valuations and are available to landlords operating as individuals or through limited companies in England, Scotland and Wales.
Louisa Sedgwick, Commercial Director at Paragon Bank, said: “We’re pleased to bring some new limited-edition products to the market to offer landlords additional choice.
“We know that brokers are looking at different ways to make deals work for their clients, trying to find the best balance between rates, fees and loan amounts, all within affordability constraints.
“For some, such as those borrowing higher amounts up to our new £2 million limit, the £2995 fee mortgage can be a good value option. Likewise, the £995 fee product could be really well suited to landlords who want to borrow up to £500k.”
