New consumer BTL offering launches at Paragon

Paragon Mortgages has announced today that it will now accept applications for consumer buy-to-let through Mortgage Trust, its sister brand.

The buy-to-let specialist’s revealed that its online application system is now live and ready for intermediaries to submit consumer buy-to-let applications. All existing products in the Mortgage Trust range will be available to consumer buy-to-let customers.

 

Paragon will only accept consumer buy-to-let applications submitted by intermediaries who are fully registered with the FCA to conduct consumer buy-to-let business.

 

Applications that may be impacted include:

 

• A first-time landlord who is remortgaging a property they have inherited, as they have decided to rent it out (and who is not already a landlord)

• A first-time landlord who chooses not to sell their existing home having then decided to rent it out and finance it with a buy-to-let mortgage

John Heron, Director of Mortgages, said: “We are pleased we have been able to launch our consumer buy-to-let application process ahead of 21 March when MCD takes effect. Whilst the proportion of this type of business is not huge across the industry, it is a potentially important gateway to property investment for first-time landlords and should be supported. Intermediaries will need to be registered to submit this type of business to us and we have designed a decision tree within our system to help them identify those applications that fall into this category.”
