Take advantage of a two year discounted rate on this Holiday Let mortgage to purchase or remortgage an investment property to rent out as a holiday rental/Airbnb.

Get an idea of how much you can borrow with our affordability calculator. The calculator will work out the maximum amount you could borrow by using a 5 year fixed rate to calculate the highest mortgage possible. Where a 5-year fixed rate is not available, the lowest rate will be used, stressed at +2%. Please contact the team to discuss your specific circumstances.

The Society is one of a handful of Lenders who offer specially designed mortgages for properties that are used as holiday homes. The property must be in England, Wales or mainland Scotland and be of standard construction and have a minimum value of £100,000. The maximum loan-to-value (LTV) is 70%, reduced to 65% for flats or apartments.

We do not lend on properties on sites but can consider Airbnb arrangements if the whole property is rented rather than a single room. Also, you can use the property for up to 60 days per year.

Properties with restrictive usage or holiday let covenants are acceptable. Properties with such covenants or with more than four bedrooms will also have a maximum 65% LTV restriction.

The mortgage listed below moves on to our Standard Variable Rate, currently 4.9% (variable), after the initial rate period. There may be a limit on how low your interest rate can fall. This is called an ‘interest rate floor’. The interest rate floor applicable to your loan will be specified in your loan documentation.
