Brexit changes impacting Buy to Let customers who are living overseas

TSB Buy to Let criteria changes from 1 January 2021.

A summary of the changes:

Buy to Let customers who are living overseas will no longer be able to complete a Rate Switch application with TSB.  This restriction is to ensure we maintain regulatory compliance with both UK and European law post Brexit.

In preparation for this change, Buy to Let accounts with an overseas correspondence address have been identified and an indicator applied to their account. Customers will be informed of this change to criteria if they make a Rate Switch application.

If a Buy to Let customer informs us that they now reside in the UK, the Rate Switch application will be progressed.

You’ll find the updated criteria guides on our website.  All brokers registered with TSB will be contacted to let them know about the changes.
