Secured Property Loans Notable change this week is on BTL’s – up from 65% to 75% - and will accept some adverse. Residential second charges - more acceptances at 90 and 95% following a reduction in score requirements.
Bridging Continues to get stronger and lenders are now starting to compete for deals. Low LTV (below 65%) non reg bridging - we can still turn around in a week on our Expedite Plan.
Commercial It’s a little tough on the high street as the lenders are still under the cosh dealing with bounce back loans. We think this sector will take longer to recover but we have the relationships in place should you have an enquiry - High street or specialist.
Lenders are still looking closely at borrowers who work in sectors potentially affected by Covid 19. For self employed applicants in affected sectors expect to be asked for more bank statements and back up info.
