NatWest head of sales Mark Bullard says: “Having declared our intent to continue to fully support the buy-to-let sector under the new PRA requirements, it’s timely that we are able to announce such significant cuts to both our rates and product fees on so many of our buy-to-let deals.  

“We want to remain competitive in this sector and will continue to work with intermediary firms on developing our buy-to-let proposition which we will look to improve in the autumn.”
