The two new buy-to-let products include a large loan, five-year fixed rate mortgage priced at 3.34% up to 65% LTV until 31st January 2025 with a maximum loan size of £1.5m. The product comes with a 0.5% product fee and a rental income calculation of 145% at payrate for individuals and 125% at payrate for limited companies.

This product is available as part of Foundation’s Tier 1 product range, which is available to those borrowers with a near-perfect credit record, and can be accessed by limited companies, individuals, first-time landlords, non-portfolio and portfolio landlords.

There is also a further five-year fixed-rate buy-to-let mortgage available at 3.49% up to 65% LTV until the 31st January 2025 with a maximum loan size of £1m.

The rest of the buy-to-let product range has also seen selected rates reduced by up to 20 basis points – all products within the buy-to-let range are available to both portfolio landlords and those purchasing/remortgage through limited companies.
