Metro Bank has reduced its pricing across both its residential and Buy-to-Let product ranges. It has also enhanced its Buy-to-Let stress rates.

Charles Morley, Director of Mortgage Distribution at Metro Bank comments:

“These product enhancements have been driven by feedback from brokers as they seek to help as many customers as possible to achieve their property goals across both the residential and buy to let sectors. We expect a busy end of year moving into 2024 and we’re delighted to roll out these changes today and offer more choice to the market.”
