Natwest Update

NatWest for Intermediaries has released a product update. For their latest products visit the product page on their website or the news section of their intermediary website.  A summary of the changes is below.  Contact us for more information. 

ONLY FOR USE BY MORTGAGE INTERMEDIARIES

Changes to our Buy to Let proposition

Effective immediately, new and existing Buy to Let Landlords will be able to apply for additional borrowing for any legal purpose other than:

    • Gambling
    • Any form of business purpose (i.e. start up for a new business)
    • Any form of Unsecured Debt Consolidation

These changes follow on from our launch of two new simplified indication calculators earlier this year, which could benefit customers looking to remortgage like-for-like with NatWest. Alongside the new calculators, we introduced a lower stress rate of 4.5% for 5 year products and like-for-like remortgages.

For small landlords and like-for-like remortgage cases, no proof of income is required on submission and the application will proceed through a reduced underwriting process – This means a quicker journey for the you and your customers.

We also removed our minimum income threshold and for small landlords and like-for-like remortgage cases, no proof of income is required in submission and the application will proceed through a reduced underwriting process – This means a quicker journey for you and your customers.

Give our calculators a try, or if you have any questions on our Buy to Let policy, please consult our Buy to Let hub.
