Am I stuck with Halifax's 5.49% or can I get a better Buy To Let rate elsewhere?

Posted on 12 March 2013 by Louisa Mansfield

How can I get Halifax to agree to Consent to Let on my current mortgage? I am on standard variable of 3.99% but will rise if to 5.49% if i move to the mortgage that Halifax want me to go on. Am renting my flat to rent another bigger one with my boyfriend for short term period NOT to buy an other property. Is my only choice the 5.49% offer with Halifax - should I look elsewhere for a buy to let mortgage. Please advise. Thanks, Louisa


It hopefully isn't the case that the Halifax deal on offer is your only option, but I would need to know the details for the rest of the case before I could really say otherwise.

There are an awful lot of Buy To Let offers out there,with much depending on your individual status, Loan To Value, and the rental income likely to be generated by your property.

If you'd like to see what we may be able to do for you, then please let me know and I'll arrange a convenient time for you to speak with one of our consultants.
