Foundation increases maximum buy to let LTV to 80%
Foundation Home Loans, the specialist lender, has increased the maximum loan-to-value (LTV) on its buy-to-let (BTL) range to 80%.

The LTVs for both the standard and first-time landlord products have increased from 75% to 80%, and borrowers can either choose a 2% arrangement fee, or a flat £1995 fee.

Rates start from 3.85%, and are the same for both limited companies and individuals.

Jeff Knight (pictured), director of marketing at Foundation, commented: “We recently undertook a market test through some of our key distribution partners in order to test demand.”

“Following the successful pilot, we have chosen to increase our LTVs across our standard and first-time landlord products – available to a much wider distribution.”

Knight added: “We are always looking for ways to enhance our proposition to landlords, both non-portfolio and portfolio landlords.”
