Commercial Trust launches B2L comparison tool

Landlords can use the tool to filter and sort through any number of products – from one to the entire range – by property value, required loan, term, repayment type and loan type, and whether early repayment charges will apply.

Stuart Cunningham, director of operations at Commercial Trust, said: “Buy-to-let lenders recognise this surging demand and are constantly updating their product ranges.

“Every week lenders are announcing new or revised mortgages that are competitive in terms of rates, fees and flexibility.

“At Commercial Trust, we believe in making the customer journey as smooth as possible, which is why we are very proud of our new mortgage comparison tool that enables users to browse and compare our full range of over 500 mortgages.

“At present, we believe that we are the only broker to offer such a comparison tool that looks at buy-to-let products only.”

Landlords can then select up to four products to compare side-by-side, in order to get a true picture of how the key features of each mortgage stack up.

Once they have found a product that suits them, they can then contact or request a call-back from one of Commercial Trust’s expert advice team.

Cunningham added: “Another key feature of our buy-to-let service is that many of our advisers are also landlords themselves, so when a customer calls for a quote they speak to a fellow professional and not a salesperson.

“We believe this affords us the unique opportunity to provide a comprehensive, personally tailored advisory service that includes not just product choice but also investment strategy and future business plans.”
