Newcastle Building Society has today announced that it is to move into the Buy-to-Let market, with a range of products.
The Newcastle will work closely with The Business Mortgage Company, who will take on the role of liaising directly with brokers and then submit cases back to the building society on their behalf.
Available to all brokers, the products will include market-leading rates and also a variety of short or long-term fixed or heavily discounted alternatives. The products have a free-valuation and come with a range of either fixed or percentage based fees. This will allow borrowers to decide on the product that suits them better and which is the most cost effective.
In addition, Newcastle Building Society will pay the packaging fee for all applicants, which is normally between £250-£299.
Products available include a two-year discounted deal at 2.49%, which comes with a £999 completion fee a maximum LTV of 75%. Alternatively, there is a two-year fixed rate deal available at 2.35%, again with a maximum LTV of 75% but with a 2.5% completion fee.
For those after increased security, there is also a five year fixed rate deal at 3.89%, with a £999 completion fee and maximum LTV of 75%.
