Both products carry a rent to interest calculation of 125% at 5.5%. Customers can refinance a maximum of 10 properties at one time with aggregated exposure of £2.5m to 65% LTV.

Investors will be attracted to the capital overpayment facility of up to 10% each year as well as the interest-only option of up to 10 years. The products are also available to trading businesses and SPV Limited Companies.

Richard Saulet, director of mortgages and commercial delivery at Metro Bank, said: "We are always looking for new ways to support our customers and bring them the best in service and convenience. We believe there is plenty of room for more lenders to offer mortgages suited to professional residential investors, and are pleased to be able to support this group through today's extension."
