Let to Buy criteria changes

In response to feedback from our customers Platform will now allow the remortgage of a residential property to a Buy to Let, provided the applicant is in the process of purchasing a new residential property. In order for an offer to be issued on the Buy to Let mortgage we will need to receive evidence of the offer for the new residential mortgage. There will be no exceptions to this requirement.

 

The current Let to Buy policy regarding retaining an existing residential mortgage when applying for a residential mortgage with Platform remains unchanged.
