Fleet Mortgages opens doors for business

Fleet is offering a selection of two and 5-year fixed-rate deals and 3-year tracker rates based on LIBOR.

It is offering specific 65%, 75% and 80% LTV products for individual and limited company buy-to-lets, and 65% and 75% LTV for HMOs.

Highlights of the range include a 2.79% 2-year fixed-rate 65% LTV individual buy-to-let product, 2-year limited company fixed-rate buy-to-let products priced at 4.39% (65% LTV) and a number of buy-to-let tracker options.

Bob Young, chief executive officer of Fleet Mortgages, said: “This is a momentous day for the Fleet Mortgages’ team and all our stakeholders as we open our lending doors and begin to accept business through our distribution partners.

“We have brought this lender to market in record time and are lending at what is a very exciting time for a growing and developing buy-to-let market.

“Our products focus on areas which we believe are currently underserved, particularly in the limited company and HMO market, and we believe this range should particularly appeal to our target customer, experienced landlords.

“We could not have got to this point so quickly without the support of all our partners in all areas of the business, plus the hard work of everyone in the Fleet Mortgages’ team.

“Our focus now moves from pre-launch to active lending and we are aiming to deliver a high quality of service, ensuring open communication and transparency between ourselves and advisers.

“This is a long-term project and we are looking forward to working with the buy-to-let advisory community in order to develop a proposition which meets their needs and those of their clients.”

Andy Young, CEO at The Business Mortgage Company (TBMC), added: “I am delighted that Fleet Mortgages has chosen TBMC as one of its distribution partners from launch.

“Fleet Mortgages has a compelling proposition in the buy-to-let mortgage market and I am sure Bob Young and his management team will grow a very successful business.”

The lenders’ products are currently available through seven distributors: The Business Mortgage Company; The Buy to Let Business; Legal & General Mortgage Club; Mortgages for Business; The Mortgage Trading Centre; Professional & Commercial; and Solent Mortgage Services.
