Mortgage Trust launches new range of limited edition BTL mortgages

Mortgage Trust has launched a new range of limited edition buy-to-let products, including a two-year fixed rate of 3.29 per cent up to 75 per cent LTV.

The sister brand of Paragon Mortgages will retain the 2.99 per cent tracker mortgage for purchase and is adding a remortgage-only version.

Mortgage Trust director of mortgages John Heron says: “We are delighted to bring another range of highly competitive products to market. The last two months have been the most prolific period of product development we have seen as a business since the summer of 2007 which has been driven by the expansion of our funding and the pricing we achieved on our last securitisation.

“Intermediaries can apply for these limited time only products using the revamped Mortgage Trust website and get a lending decision in seconds.”
