Keystone Property Finance has revamped its classic range, doubling the number of products on offer.

The range now caters for landlords with adverse credit.

It also has more product choices for landlords wanting to buy standard buy-to-let and HMO properties.

In place of the tracker rates, two-year fixed rate products have been added to the range starting from 3.39 per cent to 65 per cent LTV.

Five-year fixed rate pricing has increased, with rates now starting at 3.69 per cent for standard buy-to-let property and 3.89 per cengt for HMOs and multi-units.

Keystone chief executive David Whittaker says: “We are delighted that we have been able to expand our product offering and believe that the introduction of products for landlords with light adverse credit will be welcomed by both investors and brokers.”

Last month Keystone enhanced its criteria for portfolio and non-portfolio landlords.

The lender increased the maximum individual loan available from £750,000 to £1m on borrowing up to 65 per cent LTV.
