Product Update

Bristol & West

Bristol & West has changed its buy-to-let lending criteria, making it easier to arrange borrowing. The company still requires a buy-to-let borrower to earn rental income at a rate of 125% of the amount they will pay out on their mortgage but the assumed mortgage rate has been dropped from 9% to 7.75%. This makes Bristol & West’s criteria some of the most competitive in the market.

1.5% discount across Platform range

Platform Home Loans (PHL) has launched a new discounted rate product, with a discount of 1.5%, that applies to the whole range of PHL loans, including standard, light adverse, self cert, fast-track and right to buy. The rate applies until 1 June 2003. The lowest payable interest rate is 5.375% on the light adverse range, rising to 6.375% on the right to buy range.

All mortgages have also been converted to calculating interest daily. LTV ratios are up to 95% and early redemption fees are set at 6% in the first year, 6% in the second year and 5% in the third year.

Guy Batchelor, sales and marketing director at Platform Home Loans, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to introduce this new rate ‘ our best offer ever. Platform is now offering one of the lowest and longest discounts in the non-conforming lending sector. With our lowest rate at 5.375% this is cheaper than many standard variable rates offered by high street lenders.’
