For standard properties, there are also 15bps reductions on two-year fixed-rate loans, down to 5.29% with a 2% fee, while a 3% fee option is 4.79%.
The business adds, all reversion rates for fixed-rate and two-year tracker products are down to 3.49%-plus bank base rate, from 5%-plus bank base rate, for new applications.
For first-time landlords buying small houses in multiple occupation/multi-unit freehold blocks up to 75% LTV, a two-year fixed-rate offer is 5.09%, and a five-year fix is 5.69%, both carry a 3% fee.
The new pricing for existing small houses in multiple occupation/multi-unit freehold blocks at 75% LTV on two-year fixed rates is 4.89%, down from 5.19%, with a 3% fee. The other two-year fix option carries a 2% fee and a rate of 5.39%, reduced from 5.69%.
The firm adds, a five-year fixed-rate loan on existing small houses in multiple occupation/multi-unit freehold blocks at 75% LTV, the options are 5.79%, down from 5.99%, with a 2% fee or 5.59%, reduced from 5.79%, carrying a 3% fee.
