Charles McDowell, Commercial Director of Mortgages at Aldermore said: ‘These changes are good news for both landlords and limited company buy-to-let investors.’
‘Whilst there have been many changes to the buy-to-let market over the last 12 months, the improvement in affordability on our 5 year fixed products will provide much needed support to the market. The increasing number of renters combined with the on-going supply pressures across the private rental sector is evidence of the integral role buy-to-let plays within the UK’s housing market. Our new products reaffirm our commitment to supporting UK landlords,’ he added.
