NatWest cuts maximum LTI for self-employed borrowers
NatWest has cut the maximum loan to income (LTI) amount which it will allow for self-employed borrowers to 4.25 times income.

 

The lender did not formally announce the cut but appears to have made the change when introducing its new calculator for self-employed cases earlier this week.

Broker illustrations shown to Mortgage Solutions from the calculator which have since been replicated, indicate the lender will now only offer a maximum of 4.25 times income to self-employed borrowers.

This is a reduction from the five times income that was previously available.

It does not appear that the LTI cap for employed borrowers has been changed.

The lender did not dispute the changes when contacted by Mortgage Solutions.

A NatWest spokesperson said: “We continually review our proposition to ensure it is in line with current market conditions.”

NatWest also increased rates across its product suite this week, with those at higher loan to values (LTVs) rising by up to 0.3 per cent.

The lender joins Barclays in reducing its LTI cap this week, although Barclays made the changes for all residential mortgages not yet at offer.
