Roma Finance has launched a holiday let and serviced accommodation five-year term base rate tracker mortgage product.
The criteria offered by the bridging, buy-to-let and development finance lender includes a maximum loan-to-value (LTV) of 70% and an arrangement fee of 1.95%.
The maximum loan is £500,000, and Roma will permit the borrower to ‘top slice’ actual rent from other provable income, and each case is underwritten individually.
The tracker product has rates at 65% LTV of 4.89% plus base rate, and at 70% LTV of 5.39% plus base rate.
Scott Marshall, managing director at Roma Finance, said: “Holiday lets can provide property investors with another income option rather than the buy to let route which has seen a lot of changes in recent years.
“Monthly rental income and yields can be higher than many other forms of property investment as renters are looking at the location of the property and using it to visit local beauty spots and landmarks.
“We’ve seen an increase in enquiries about this type of finance on well-located houses and apartments and the ‘staycation’ is also proving to be a popular choice for many.“
