Mortgage Trust reduces mass market buy-to-let fixed rate to 5.95%

Reduced from their previous fixed rate of 5.99%, the product also boasts a lower arrangement fee, 85% LTV and no MIG.

With no early redemption charges applicable beyond the fixed rate duration, the latest product from Mortgage Trust is ideal for property investors looking for the certainty of a low rate for a set period.

Not only is this rate extremely attractive but Mortgage Trust offers full flexibility on this product giving investors the opportunity to save for further property purchases or budget for rental voids and maintenance costs.

Austin Jelfs, head of sales and marketing at Mortgage Trust, says: “We are sure that our reduced fixed rate buy-to-let product will prove extremely popular with borrowers wishing to stabilise their mortgage payments at a time when base rates may still rise.”

Pensions: trouble ahead?

The pace of change in the pension’s space has been little short of astonishing, and has left thousands of employers struggling to keep their pension policy compliant, and also on the right side of current best practice and governance.
