A new online comparison site Buy-to-Let Direct has launched to help landlords make sense of the options available to them.
Buy-to-Let Direct provides an online search tool dedicated to buy-to-let mortgages which has a built-in rental calculator and numerous filters including tax rate bracket, portfolio size, tenant type, and limited company status.
Jane Simpson, managing director at Buy-to-Let Direct, said: “The buy-to-let mortgage market is increasingly complex following the swathe of regulatory and tax changes, so finding the right product can be mind boggling.
“We believe there is a gap in the market for a totally transparent comparison tool that gives landlords access to information they would normally only be able to find out via a mortgage broker.
“A lot of landlords are tech-savvy and like to research information about financial products directly then undertake their own analysis of the options available.
“Buy-to-Let Direct provides this facility to landlords with the added support of a team of buy-to-let experts on hand to help them throughout their decision-making process.
“Our Mortgage Finder is unique in the marketplace and takes account of pertinent data such as tax status and portfolio size to provide personalised results.”
Buy-to-Let Direct offers a whole of market service, accessing over 95% of the buy-to-let products available in the UK, including many specialist lenders and products that are not available on the high street.
These include products for houses in multiple occupation, limited companies and multi-unit blocks.
The online search facility is supported by a team of experienced buy-to-let mortgage consultants who can be contacted by telephone or email to discuss customer enquiries.
There is also an online application form.
