Applying for a buy-to-let mortgage just got easier for borrowers

A new online search tool has been launched by Buy-to-Let Direct to help landlords compare buy-to-let mortgages and make sense of the options available to them.

Designed to help landlords navigate the often complicated process of finding the best mortgage to suit their circumstances, it gives personalised results, with a built-in calculator and filters that include tax status, portfolio size, tenant type, HMOs and limited company status.

Jane Simpson, managing director at Buy-to-Let Direct, said: “The buy-to-let mortgage market is increasingly complex following the swathe of regulatory and tax changes, so finding the right product can be mind-boggling.”

The new facility has been created as a “totally transparent comparison tool”, that offers landlords the ability to access information that previously they would only get through a broker.

Specialist support

The tool is backed up by a team of Buy-to-Let Direct mortgage consultants who are available to discuss customer enquiries; permitting landlords to do their own research with the option to consult an expert if they need help with their decision-making process.

Access to the Buy-to-Let Direct mortgage finder is gained by registering via an online application form. Once access is approved, the application process is stated to be simple and time-saving, plus users can save their progress and store mortgage applications for future reference.

Since Buy-to-Let Direct has access to over 95% of the buy-to-let products available in the UK, even landlords that prefer to consult with a broker might be tempted to see what personalised deals they can find themselves.
