Starling Bank acquires buy-to-let specialist mortgage lender, Fleet Mortgages


Recommended Posts

Last week, Starling Bank announced its first acquisition, of the buy-to-let specialist mortgage lender, Fleet Mortgages; https://www.starlingbank.com/news/starling-bank-acquires-mortgage-lender-fleet-mortgages/

Fleet Mortgages focuses on providing mortgages to professional and semi-professional buy-to-let landlords, only via mortgage adviser distribution channels.

It's an interesting announcement given that Starling is an online-only bank - do we think this is moving mortgageability into a more innovative space? Definitely seems quite modern and moving away from the typical idea of having to go into an old institution of a bank in order to get your mortgage.

And yet it’s so far taken them over two weeks to open my Limited company as all they keep asking for is for me to prove my source of funds??

Without having bank details I can’t even apply for my remortgage for the first limited company purchase………..

Not impressed so far.

I use starling for my business (not property related) and I have a BTL with fleet.  Fleet is a great lender - they are pragmatic with property that is unconventional.

 

Starling is an exceptional bank - technology led, and you can do everything without having to call them up all the time!

 

A good match in my eyes!
