This week’s most read on Mortgage Solutions and Specialist Lending Solutions involved the poll result, sponsored by the Bank of Ireland, showing that almost two in five buy-to-let (BTL) landlords are looking to hike rents to remain profitable since the tax changes.
This was followed by a feature from Ying Tan, founder and chief executive of the Buy to Let Club, about BTL lenders increasingly seeking ex-pats and foreign nationals, and specialist lender Magellan Homeloans announcing its sad closure to new business.
The latest report from the Bank of England and FCA showing the rise in the value of residential mortgage lending in Q4 2018 was well read too.
Also, the list of the finalists at the British Specialist Lending Awards 2019 and the winners of the NatWest Mortgage Awards broke into this week’s top ten.
