“The new products offer a much wider range of product options to landlords.

“The new Mortgage Trust products complement the existing range and are augmented by a state-of-the-art online service.

“The new Paragon Mortgages products are more suited to professional landlords who tend to need a more tailored approach for more complex rental properties.”2
