As of today, 5 February, the specialist lender is offering a 2- and 3-year fix, giving BTL investors shorter-term options if they do not want to tie in for five years.
Crucially, neither the 2- or 3-year BTL mortgages have rate stressing which forces many landlords to tie into 5-year fixed rates with associated early repayment charges (ERCs).
MFS’s fixed-rate products start from a pay rate of 4.59%.
The company has also reduced its tracker rates by between 0.20% and 0.25%.
Paresh Raja (pictured), CEO of MFS, said: “The time is right for us to introduce two-year and three-year fixed products back into our BTL mortgage range.
“We know that while they do not want to be locked in for so long, many brokers and borrowers take out 5-year fixes due to a lack of an alternative or because they can get a longer-term fix without rate stressing.
“The fact we are bringing in shorter fixes but without rate stressing will give BTL investors much more control and choice when seeking the right product.”
He added: “Everything we do is designed to empower brokers and borrowers. Our skill, experience and funding lines allow us to provide greater flexibility and optionality, and we’re confident that our expanding BTL mortgage range will remain in high demand in 2024.”
