Cost of BTL Lending Falling

As buy to let borrowing rates fell by an average of 0.33 per cent in the first quarter of 2013, Belvoir Kettering is encouraging first time investors to take the plunge.

The new report from Mortgages for Business found that two year fixed rate products at 65 per cent LTV fell the most, falling by 0.69 per cent over the quarter.

These figures show a positive change in the market. From talking to landlords locally in Kettering it seems that finance is easier to secure than it was twelve months ago and this is great for the rentals market. Now is a great time to invest.

David Whittaker from Mortgages for Business, said earlier this week: “This is good news for property investors looking for finance. It’s interesting to see that the effect of costs on rates are beginning to fall back to their pre-credit crunch level which is a sign of continued market improvement and could be contributing the marked increase of buy to let remortgage activity witnessed in Q1”.

The report revealed that in Q1 2013, lender arrangement fees, valuation fees and legal costs added an average of 0.52 per cent onto the headline cost of a buy to let mortgage. This has dropped slightly since the beginning of the year when the figure stood at 0.57 per cent.

Demand is still far outweighing supply when it comes to the lettings market, which is again great news for investors. The news that buy to let lending is becoming easier to obtain is also very positive news.
