Precise Mortgages, the UK’s leading specialist lender*, has made its top slicing feature available across its entire buy to let range to help more customers achieve greater flexibility around product choice and loan size.
The lender is now accepting top slicing on all eligible personal ownership, limited company, portfolio, HMO, and holiday and student let applications. First time buyers are excluded.
Customers will be able to use surplus portfolio or earned income to demonstrate that they could meet any financial stresses on their new property application, rather than through the rental income of that property alone.
This can help to unlock its range of 2 year Fixed rate buy to let mortgages, in addition to its 5 year Fixed rate products, to give customers access to a wider range of products which may previously not have been achievable.
Precise Mortgages has also streamlined the application process by reducing the number of questions brokers have to provide answers for and enhanced its online buy to let calculator.
Alan Cleary, Managing Director of Precise Mortgages, said: “In a challenging market, we’re always thinking of new ways to help more customers get the buy to let mortgage they want and optimise their investment opportunity.
“By making our top slicing feature available across our entire buy to let range it creates greater access to our 2 year Fixed rate products, therefore opening up options to more customers, particularly those who might have been restricted by ICR requirements in the past.”
