Mortgage Next is launching a two-year base rate tracker buy-to-let mortgage on June 19.

The buy-to-let mortgage consist of a base rate tracker plus 0.20% for two years giving a current charging rate of 4.70%.

After two years the rate reverts to Bank of England Base Rate plus 0.99% for the remainder of the term.

The product has no early redemption charge, 1.5% arrangement fee and is available up to 85% LTV plus fees.

It allows 10% overpayments and the maximum loan advance is 500,000 and there is a procuration fee of 0.5% up to a maximum of 2,500

Justine Tomlinson, marketing director at Mortgage Next, says: The buy-to-let market has continued to hold-up well and and this two year base rate tracker offers one of the lowest rates currently available, with the added benefit of no early redemption penalties.
