Are buy to let mortgage rates now on the increase?
We could now be seeing a trend of increases in buy to let mortgage rates.
This is likely because of the influence of two factors:
- increases in swap rates
- suggestion of earlier than expected rise in the base rate
Foundation Home Loans are one such lender that has taken the step of raising its rates. However, they have also taken the opportunity to extend its offering. In response to the popularity of HMO’s, the lender had added a 3 year fixed rate mortgage from 3.29%. All buy to let mortgages from this lender are available to small or portfolio landlords as well as limited companies or those operating as individuals.

will be treated as a normal buy to let and not as a consumer buy to let. In addition, their subsequent remortgage applications will also be treated in the same manner.
