Buy to let investors take advantage of falling mortgage costs

Reports from September show that interest rates have fallen by as much as 8% since March 2016.

New data from Mortgage Brain has highlighted that investors have been able to purchase buy to let properties at a much better rate, with the average cost of a five year fixed mortgage (with 70% loan-to-value) now being 8% lower than it was six months previously.

The number of buy to let mortgages with a 60% loan-to-value has also fallen over the period between March – August 2016. The lower rates have had a huge impact on the buy to let market and has resulted in many investors saving quite a sum of money by taking advantage of current deals.

For example, a rate of 2.80% in September 2016, could see a potential annual saving of £738 on a mortgage loan worth £150,000, compared to 6 months previous. A similar deal with a two year fixed rate mortgage (at 2.89%) could see annual savings of £540 for landlords if they were to take advantage of these deals.

The news follows on from recent figures analysing lending on the number of remortgages reaching an 8 year high – this may well reflect the higher number of investors remortgaging their own property in order to finance a buy to let purchase.
