Paradigm Mortgage Services has added buy-to-let and let-to-buy lender New Street Mortgages to its panel.

New Street’s lending criteria include rental calculations starting at 115 per cent at 5.5 per cent, no limit on portfolio sizes for landlords and let-to-buy products for accidental landlords.

New Street plans to launch into the residential mortgage market in 2017 with the intention of providing intermediaries with an alternative to traditional mainstream and specialist lenders.

The lender initially planned to enter residential lending this year.

Paradigm head of mortgage services John Coffield says: “This is a traditionally busy time for the mortgage market and advisers want to ensure they have access to the newest brands who are offering cutting-edge propositions tailored to the specific needs of their clients.

“New Street Mortgages certainly fits the bill in this regard, and as part of The Northview Group, comes with a pedigree that all mortgage advisers should be familiar with.”

India Election Update

What a difference six months makes. Speaking in September last year, we had warned of ‘excessive pessimism’ afflicting the market’s perception of India. Since then, responsible central bank policy from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), alongside improving global growth, has meant that India’s macro environment is strengthening quickly.

This begs the question: are we now in a period of ‘irrational exuberance’? Not yet.
