Fixed Rate and Lifetime Tracker products are available to Individual or Limited Company (SPV) applicants for BTL purchases or remortgages, either as a single mortgage or on a portfolio basis. We can lend on large portfolios and provide a bespoke service – take a look at this case study as an example.

Products are available on standard properties, HMOs, MUFBs, new builds and flats above commercial premises.

Our products are for buy-to-let purposes only, excluding consumer buy-to-let. We only lend on properties in England and Wales.

Interest Coverage Ratios (ICRs)

Please note – each application is considered on its merits and we do not guarantee acceptance of all cases which meet our headline criteria. We reserve the right to withdraw products without notice at any time. All mortgage intermediaries are required to comply with our Intermediary Terms of Business.

* If the case doesn’t reach offer stage within these timescales but the application is still progressing, a replacement product can be chosen from the range available at that time. However, if the application is not progressing, we reserve the right to close the case and a new application would need to be submitted.

Consumer Buy To Let: Zephyr Homeloans is unable to lend on a Consumer Buy to Let basis. Where it is identified that an application may be subject to Consumer Buy to Let regulatory requirements, the application will be declined. For example, in the scenario where the applicant or family member has previously resided in the property, and the applicant does not have at least one other BTL property, Zephyr will always view this as a Consumer loan regardless of the time that has elapsed since the period of residence.
