Amber unveils B2L range

Amber Homeloans launches an extended range of buy-to-let products today. Its range now includes adverse criteria which allow up to 5000 CCJs, ignore all defaults and except mortgage defaults.

Mike Perry, associate director of sales and marketing at Amber, says: “We are happy with this range and pleased to be extending further into the buy-to-let market, taking advantage of our sub-prime expertise.”

The buy-to-let products have no higher lending charges and are linked to the three-month LIBOR.

The standard buy-to-let range offers products with either no early repayment charges or a discounted rate until February 28, 2007, with initial rates of 5.58% and 4.58%.

Amber has also changed its criteria for buy-to-let lending, which it says makes all its products more accessible.

Only one month’s payslips are required from employed clients and if basic income is under 20,000, one month’s payslip and P60 is required. One year’s accounts are required for self-employed clients and no bank statements or rental estimates are required. Rent or expected rent must cover interest by 125% and a maximum of 10 properties is allowed per borrower, with a maximum value of 1,000,000.
