  • Capped Rents: Rising interest rates for mortgage products are being partially offset by rental growth in the current market. However, this is removed in Scotland whilst rents are capped. If the current period is extended, landlords may find passing rent no longer meets debt servicing requirements for a new product at a higher interest rate. They will consider outside sources of income for borrowers who are able to feasibly meet mortgage payments in the event of a longer 3 month void period.

06/10/2022 - Bluestone release revised product range

Great news, we have launched a revised product range and will be open for new business again from today.

Due to the volatile market conditions, we have had to conduct a review of our current process. The result of this concluded the need to amend the way we process applications & how we treat any amendments to submitted applications. 

So what does this mean for you?

Submitting a new application

  • A mortgage product rate will be secured once we have a fully packaged application
  • valuation fee will be taken once the application has been submitted to speed up the overall processing time 

Amending an existing application

  • We are unable to accept any mortgage offer extension requests. Please note, our offer validity period is 4 months for standard construction and 6 months for new build cases
  • If there is any significant change to an application, i.e. change of property or a material change in circumstances, a new application will be required with a product selected from the range available at that time

Please be aware that we cannot give SLAs on new applications until we have processed the current pipeline.

06/10/2022 - HTB update on managing application pipeline

We promised to come back to you with a clear steer around how we were going to manage the pipeline of applications.

We will continue to honour cases that have been offered as normal.

For all applications that have had a valuation instructed as of Thursday, 29 September 2022, we will honour the rates selected, subject to the following:

  • The case must be fully packaged with all supporting documents uploaded by Thursday, 13 October;
  • Once the application is picked up by an Underwriter, the case must have progressed to formal offer within 7 days. The Underwriter will notify you on each case as they pick it up. This means if we ask for further documentation or evidence to support the application, it needs to be returned promptly, and;
  • The case must complete by Friday, 30 December 2022

Whilst we appreciate this creates some challenges, we are confident that it also gives enough time to pull together the relevant/requested documents to support the application.

------------------------------------------------------------------

05/10/2022 - Castle Trust release new business product

04/10/2022 - Family announce switch promise

LIMITED TIME PRODUCT SWITCH PROMISE FOR NEW AND EXISTING CLIENTS

We are acutely aware that many borrowers are seeking the certainty of being able to fix their mortgage payment. As we unfortunately cannot currently price fixed rates sensibly in such a volatile market, we will be introducing a new short term initiative alongside our discount product rates, as follows:

  • Anyone completing a new discounted variable rate mortgage from 3 October until 31 December 22, will have 6 months from completion in which to switch to a fixed rate with us. The switch would be ERC free with no product fee on the new fixed rate and no other charges by us unless additional borrowing is involved.  ERCs apply as normal to large capital payments or redemption.  We plan to reintroduce new fixed rate products in the near future, when appropriate. 
  • For any cases which complete on a variable discounted rate product and are then transferred to a fixed rate product, there will be the initial new business proc fee for the completed case, then a 0.20% proc fee for the product transfer.
  • We will also extend the ERC free switch promise being made available for new clients, as outlined above, to existing clients with mortgage products maturing between 3 October to 31 January 2023.
New discounted variable rate product details are viewable here:

30/09/2022 - Kensington Product Update

Please note to secure a current rate you must have confirmed all DIP data is correct on the first page of the Full Mortgage Application and have commenced to the next page. If this has not been done the you will not have secured a current rate. Please see the submission deadlines below:

Decision in Principle Illustration produced AND the Mortgage Application commenced by 5pm Monday 3rd October. Full Mortgage Application submitted by 5pm on Sunday 9th October.

30/09/2022 - UTB Product Update

At UTB we are committed to the specialist mortgage market, but with so few lenders now offering a complete range, we are expecting high demand for our products. To manage this, I would like to confirm the following:

  • We will continue to honour the old interest rates on all Full Mortgage Applications submitted to us on or before 27 September. I can today confirm we will be extending the date by which a mortgage offer must be produced on these old interest rates, from the 11 October (that we first said on Tuesday), to the 31 October.
  • In our normal process, Report on Titles are requested from our Solicitor panel late in the underwriting process, instead we have requested these on our full internal pipeline already. We hope this will reduce the risk of delays later in the process.
  • With immediate effect, we are now requesting Applicants download and complete their ID and security checks through the UTB Chat Hub App once income and affordability is confirmed. Again, moving this activity earlier in the underwriting process will reduce the risk of delays later on.
  • We have also discussed the current operating environment with our Surveyor panel, who will continue to support new instructions to the best of their ability.
  • We would remind you that to qualify as a Full Mortgage Application, each case must be submitted with the minimum underwriting requirements as stated on the DIP. This will change from case to case, but will never be less than Proof of Income and a Loan Purpose Form. Any applications without the minimum underwriting requirements will be returned, to allow us to concentrate on progressing applications with the correct documents uploaded.
  • We have delayed all non-essential activity across our underwriting teams, to ensure that we have the maximum capacity possible. We are anticipating an increase in new applications due to other lenders withdrawing from the market, and also understand the need to prioritise tasks and post on the existing underwriting pipeline so that offers can be produced before the extended 31 October deadline.
  • To help manage these priorities, we will be setting an SLA of 5 days for new Full Mortgage Applications received from 30 September, as well as any new Post received on those cases. We plan to keep this SLA in place for one month. Whilst longer than the 1 day turnaround you are used to from UTB, we want to ensure as many Customers as possible with lower interest rates on expiring products can receive their mortgage offers before 31 October. Any cases not offered by this deadline will need to be resold onto new products at higher interest rates.

Their current products, which were confirmed on Tuesday and launched today, are below.

30/09/2022 - Foundation launch new BTLs

As of Friday 30th September 2022, Foundation Home Loans have made changes to their Buy to Let products for purchase and remortgage. The changes to the range include:

  • A reduction to the F1 75% 2-year discount rate of 25bps, pay rate now from 4.19% (reversion-3.05%)

Find out more by checking their latest product guide: Foundation BTL Product Guide

George Gee, Managing Director (Commercial) at Foundation Home Loans, said: 

We have cut our discount product pricing which should provide a competitive option for those landlord clients seeking two-year buy-to-let mortgages.

"Our service remains at very high levels which will allow us to work quickly on behalf of advisers over the next few days, and we want advisers to know we are here and ready to help them in order to get the best outcomes for their landlord clients."

------------------------------------------------------------------

29/09/2022 - FHL pull all BTLs

Given the unprecedented demand since Foundation Home Loans announced our product withdrawal on Wednesday morning, we have had no option other than to pull all buy to let products with immediate effect simply down to the system issues that this has caused.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused to any brokers and customers and we appreciate all the support you have given us.

------------------------------------------------------------------

29/09/2022 - Family 3 October application deadline extension

We know a number of you have pre and post-offer applications with us that are due to expire on 3 October.
 
In this uncertain rate environment and 3 October almost upon us, we may be able to provide an extension to your pre and post-offer applications, depending on its status. This is explained in more detail below: 

Have you yet to receive a mortgage offer?

  • Cases in a pre-offer state can now enjoy the same 13-week application validity period we now apply to new cases; any offer issued will then be valid for 9 weeks from the date the offer is issued.
  • If your case has already had 13 or more weeks since submitting the application, we will not be able to offer an extension.

Have you received a mortgage offer?

  • Post-offer cases will be allowed a minimum of 9 weeks from the date of the original offer to complete.  This means extensions will be granted to any case where the time between your offer date and the original 3 October deadline is less than 9 weeks;
  • However, any post-offer case which has a current deadline of 3 October, and the time between the offer and 3 October is already greater than or equal to 9 weeks cannot be extended. These cases will have to complete by 3 October. 

Please note the above relates only to the following products:

  • XF0493 to XF0520 & XFZ011 and
  • XF0521 to XF0548 & XFZ012

Important note:

If your current post or pre-offer case is not able to be extended for the reasons outlined above, you will be able to choose from our range of variable discounted products.

From Monday 3 October this range will also include new products for owner-occupier repayment and limited company buy to let, alongside the products we currently have on sale, which means we will have a variable option for all of your cases.

------------------------------------------------------------------

29/09/2022 - HTB update on current situation

All cases where a formal offer has been issued will proceed as normal and all rates will be honoured as per standard processes.

All applications that are yet to be formally offered are unable to proceed at their given rate. Our intention is to provide a revised rate that will be below our current new business rates but given the market volatility, we cannot provide you with this rate at this time. To ensure no unnecessary additional expense is incurred by your clients we will not be instructing valuations, issuing offers, or dealing with solicitors in relation to these cases.

We understand this is an unsettling time for your clients and these current market conditions are less than ideal. We will continue to work pre-offer cases internally and once pricing can be confirmed, we will be in touch immediately with a way forward. If you and your client wish to progress these cases without delay, they can be moved forward at the current new business rate which was confirmed on Wednesday, 28 September. We will of course release all valuations should you be able to find a solution with another lender.

------------------------------------------------------------------

29/09/2022 - TML announce new fixed rate products

28/09/2022 - UTB make changes

Extreme volatility in the deposit and swap markets, both of which are key to how many banks raise and lend money, is leading to sharp increases in the cost of funds. For this reason, we are updating all interest rates across our Mortgage, BTL and Second Charge Loan products. Please note that we remain committed to the specialist mortgage market, and as such all other key criteria and parameters remain untouched, including the availability of fixed rates, max LTV and loan sizes etc.

Key product change information:

  • Applications where a Mortgage Offer has already been issued are unaffected.
  • We will also honour the current product selected for all Full Mortgage Applications, that were submitted for underwriting before close of business on Tuesday 27 September, providing a Mortgage Offer is issued on or before Tuesday 11 October.
  • Any DIP that was not submitted as a Full Mortgage Application before close of business on Tuesday 27 September, will need a new DIP to be completed on the new products detailed below.
  • Whilst announced today, these new products will not be available in the Portal until 08:00am on Friday 30 September. We apologise for this slight delay, caused purely as a result of the velocity of cost of funds altering, and scale of products being updated.

Mortgages, Product Update
All Purchase, Remortgage, Interest Only and Unencumbered products have been updated:

  • 2yr fixed rates from 6.24%
  • 3yr fixed rates from 7.30%

05/09/2022 - Family BS: Semi Exclusive Relaunch

As promised, Family BS are back! With a brand new set of fixed rate products and new applications and offer validity periods.

New validity periods:

  • You spoke, Family listened. A fixed completion deadline will no longer apply to new fixed rate products. Instead, they have introduced a 3 month application validity period as well as a 3 month validity period from the date of the mortgage offer. Fixed rate mortgage products launched prior to 5 September will still be subject to their relevant completion deadline unless they specifically advise that this has been extended.
  • This means that your clients will now have 3 months from the date an application is received in order to secure an offer for one of their on sale mortgage products. Once a fixed rate mortgage product is offered, the mortgage offer will be valid for 3 months.
  • Their variable rate products will also be subject to the application validity period, however, the offer period remains unaffected and will continue to be 5 months.
  • Family believe this new approach will provide greater flexibility and clarity for you and your clients.
Their brand new product range:
As of today, 5 September 2022, Family are launching a brand new fixed rate product range.
Owner Occupier fixed rate products
  • 2 year repayment from 4.44
  • 2 year interest only from 4.64, semi exclusive
  • 5 year repayment from 4.29
  • 5 year interest only 4.49, semi exclusive
  • 2 year JMSO repayment from 4.54
  • 5 year JMSO repayment from 4.39
Specialist mortgages including their Family Mortgage, RIO and Retirement Lifestyle Booster are also available.

Buy to Let fixed rate products
Their new BTL fixed rate range includes products for UK Landlords, Limited Co, BTLs and Expats. All fixed rates have increased by 0.75 per cent from the previous range.

01/09/2022 - Dudley: SVR is increasing

Following the Bank Base Rate change on the 4th of August, the Societys Standard Variable Rate SVR will be increasing by 0.25 per cent on 1st October 2022.

Their SVR rate for residential mortgages will increase to 5.99, and their buy to let, holiday let and self build SVR rate will increase to 6.49.

Dudley BS want to ensure that you are informed of any rate changes prior to completion. So, they have outlined what they will be changing below, depending on the mortgage product type that has been applied for.

Fixed rate applications
If you have applied for a fixed rate product, this SVR change will not affect the initial monthly payment figure. However, once the fixed term period finishes the reversion rate will be 0.25 per cent higher than when you originally applied.

Variable rate applications
If you have applied for a variable rate product, this SVR change will affect the initial monthly payment figures, and the rate will increase by 0.25 per cent.

Discounted rate applications
If you have applied for a discounted rate product, this SVR change will affect the initial monthly payment figures, and the rate will increase by 0.25 per cent. If the product discount is set for a period of time, eg a two year discount, the reversion rate will also increase by 0.25 after the discounted period finishes.

What happens next?

  • If your application has already been offered when the rate change is completed, the application will not need to be reassessed. A new offer will be produced based on the SVR change and sent out to all parties.
  • If your application is at pre offer stage when the rate change is completed, the application will be assessed under the newly increased interest rates that are applicable.

17/08/2022 - Saffron: Transparent Service Levels

Being totally transparent about Saffrons service levels.

Youll will no doubt be aware that things are taking longer than usual across the mortgage industry right now. At Saffron, both their processing and underwriting SLAs have increased significantly in the last week. This is a cause of regret to them, and they know it is causing you and your clients some concern, so Saffron wanted to get in touch to be totally transparent about the reasons behind this.

What is causing the delays?

  • Increased Demand: All lenders are busy, but Saffrons specialist ranges have been particularly popular since they have been revamped to offer better value and more flexibility.
  • Personal Underwriting: Using skilled and experienced underwriters is their most valuable asset. Buy because they are dealing with more complex cases, this naturally takes them more time to get right.
  • COVID: The problems caused by the pandemic are still with Saffron, and some key members of their teams have been unwell recently. This has created more pressure on the remaining resources.
  • Summer Holidays: Although carefully planned in advance, colleague holidays have compounded the issues above.
What are they doing to help improve service?
  • They recently paused most new business so they can focus on your existing cases
  • They have closed one of their branches early every day to move colleagues into the processing team.
  • Their underwriters and processing teams are working record hours to work through cases at pace, including evenings and weekends.
  • They are trying to reach brokers quickly by phone when they just need a simple answer.
  • They have a dedicated team looking at ways to further reduced friction in their processes, so they can help avoid similar delays when they reopen for new business.

09/08/2022 - HTB: Increased Rates

Hampshire Trust Bank are writing to advise you of an increase in their lending rates for their Buy to Let and Semi Commercial products effective from Monday, 15 August.

After edging up by a quarter point at a time, it has now been announced that the Bank of England base rate has risen to 1.75, a jump of 0.50 per cent, the highest single increase in 27 years.

Inflation headlines have become the norm, with the current inflation rate sitting at a 40 year high of 9.4 per cent, with a suggestion it will hit above 13 per cent by October. And, of course, the mortgage market will reflect this squeeze.

As you know, HTB always wants to work with you to support you and your clients, but to do this they need a sustainable commercial model. That has led to their decision to increase their 2 and 5 year fixed rates by 0.50 per cent for both Buy to Let and Semi Commercial products. Again, as they have communicated to you in the past, their rates could well increase further but they will take a cautious approach as and when they need to, to ensure you have clarity.

As part of their commitment to you, they will always endeavour to give you as much notice of any rate increase to help you manage your business. They know your clients have more complex mortgage requirements, and with interest rates rising, it is now more important than ever to work with a lender that can offer speed and efficiency whilst facing such turbulence in the market,

To enable you to manage your application pipeline and indeed your clients expectations, they will accept any DIPs on current rates up until the closing of business, Friday 12 August, with their new rates coming into effect by Monday, 15 August. They will honour DIP up to, and including Friday 9 September, subject to the valuation having been instructed and you have uploaded all the requested documents, please remember to click SUBMIT.

So, from Monday, 15 August, their rates will increase and an updated rate card will be available on the website and in PUMA.

The specialist market is seeing a surge in demand at a time when Lenders, regardless of funding strategies, are quickly trying to adapt to activity levels and manage the cost of funds whilst having an eye on surging inflation and increases in the cost of living. Most Lenders have made operational or product changes designed to maintain service levels, for the benefit of their Brokers and Consumers, given service has always been a key differentiator for the specialist market. It is their belief most Brokers and Lenders should be applauded for working together to protect Consumers experience despite this period of flux, and for taking the necessary steps to protect the traditionally high service standards in the market in general. Despite business levels maintaining at an all time high UTB are proud to confirm that their Underwriting and Sales team are currently operating at the following Service Levels:

  • New submissions, all product sets, 90 per cent within 24hrs
  • Outstanding post, 90 per cent within 24hrs
  • New Enquiries, 90 per cent within 24hrs

19/07/2022 - Dudley BS: SVR Rate Increase

In June, Dudley communicated that the Society Standard Variable Rate SVR would increase by 0.50. However, following the further Bank Base Rate change from 1.00 to 1.25 on the 16th of June, their SVR increased by 0.75 from the 1st of July 2022.

Their SVR rate for residential mortgages increased to 5.74, and their buy to let, holiday let and self build SVR rate increased to 6.24.

Keeping you informed of any rate changes prior to completion is important to Dudley. So, Dudley has outlined how their clients are affected, depending on the mortgage product type applied.

Fixed rate application
If you have applied for a fixed rate product, this SVR change will not affect the initial monthly payment figure. However, once the fixed term period finishes the reversion rate will be 0.75 higher than when you originally applied.

Variable rate applications
If you have applied for a variable rate product, this SVR change will affect the initial monthly payment figures, and the rate will increase by 0.75.

Discounted rate applications
If you have applied for a discounted rate product, this SVR change will affect the initial monthly figures, and the rate will increase by 0.75. If the product discount is set for a period of time, e.g a two year discount, the reversion rate will also increase by 0.75 after the discounted period finishes.

What happens next?

  • If your application is at an offer stage when the rate change is completed, a new offer will be produced and sent out to all parties. Affordability may need to be reassessed depending on the rate type that has been applied for.
  • If your application is at pre offer stage when the rate change is completed, the application will be assessed under the new rates that are applicable.
If your application has been affected by this SVR increase, Dudley will get in touch with you by the end of July.

27/06/2022 - Bluestone: Affordability Updates

Bluestone Mortgages can now consider lending over 4.5x income across their full product range, as they seek to further support underserved customers with their home ownership dreams.

This new affordability model is exclusive to their Sapphire Club members, including Impact Packaging, and can enable borrowers who have a 12 month history of current rental or mortgage payments in excess of the proposed monthly mortgage payment to borrow more.

Many potential first time buyers paying regular rent, for example, are not able to secure a mortgage due to inflexible and strict affordability requirements, despite being able to evidence their ability to maintain the rental payments.

At Bluestone, they want to make homeownership accessible to all, which is why they have made these enhancements to their LTI ratios, to support this growing cohort of disenfranchised customers.

Here is a quick summary of the key features:

  • Bluestone monthly mortgage payment must be equal to, or less than 90 per cent of the current mortgage, rental payment
  • Full 12 month payment history required
  • In these cases, an LTI ratio of over 4.5x will be available
  • Available across all residential credit tiers, including Help to Buy and Right to Buy, with no LTV restrictions

Their Pepper 48 range is suitable for customers who have not had a Default or CCJ within the last 48 months. In fact, the vast majority of customers we support with their Pepper 48 range have never had a CCJ or defaults at all and so it provides a great solution for those customers who have simply failed a credit score with a mainstream provider or have other complexities which may not fit the mainstream mould such as complex income, or minor blips with unsecured credit or utilities.

Whether your customers are looking to purchase or remortgage, they could benefit from their reduced completion fees and 500 cashback to help cover additional costs, offering a valued alternative to a free legal option.

The inclusion of Limited Editions to their range supports their mission to provide you with product options that accommodate the evolving needs of your customers and, help more people succeed with their property plans.
