New five-year fixed rate deals from B&W

Bristol & West Mortgages (B&W) has launched two buy-to-let five-year fixed rate deals and has reduced its nominal rate (assumed interest rate) by 1.25% to 6.50%.

All minimum rental yields will be calculated on this rate, except for five-year fixed products, which use the actual rate.

The two new deals are 5.45% fixed until 30/09/2007, £299 booking fee and up to 85% LTV, or 5.55% fixed until 30/9/2007, a £299 arrangement fee and up to 85% LTV.

Neena Kithoray, senior product manager at B&W Mortgages, said: ‘We have listened to customers’ concerns regarding the buy-to-let market and have responded by reducing our nominal rate, so that customers benefit in terms of yield calculations, enabling them to borrow more for their investment.’

She added: ‘By launching two low rate fixed mortgages, customers not only pay a smaller monthly payment, but also benefit from the security a fixed rate mortgage brings in a time of interest rate uncertainty.’

In both cases the early redemption charges are 7% until 30/09/2003, 6% until 30/9/2005, 5% until 30/9/2007. The procuration fee is negotiable.
