Computershare Loan Services has launched Zephyr Homeloans, a dedicated buy-to-let lender that provides a range of mortgage products for portfolio landlords and other specialist property investors.
Following a successful pilot, Zephyr is now accepting individual and limited company applications through a number of key intermediary partners for individual buy-to-let properties, houses in multiple occupation, multi-unit freehold blocks, new builds and flats above commercial premises.
According to Computershare, Zephyr will offer proactive guidance and provide mortgage solutions to help intermediaries meet the needs of their clients, with rates starting from 2.69%.
The lender is also offering two and five-year fixed rates-rate products with a range of fee and rate options.
Peter Charge, head of sales at Zephyr, said: “We’re arranging loans of up to £2 million on behalf of institutional investors for our standard range and up to £1.5 million for specialist properties and are assisting them with accessing funding from third parties.”
Zephyr is the first brand that Computershare has launched as part of a service to funders that covers every stage of the mortgage lifestyle. The company will be responsible for forming partnerships with approved intermediary brokers, fulfilment, day-to-day administration and underwriting. Funding will be provided by institutional lenders.
