From today (11 October) we are improving the price on three of our standard residential fixed rates.
Newbury Building Society has launched its new Buy to Let affordability calculator which works with the new stress rate and takes into account top-slicing.

Roger Knight, Lending Manager at Newbury Building Society said: “Our Buy to Let calculator quickly informs the broker if their client is suitable or not. It will also help with top-slicing calculations for not only standard Buy to Let, but can also help with any regulated, consumer, ex-pat and limited company applications. This means that we will consider income from a day job rather than rent to boost the amount an applicant can borrow. We do this by considering the borrower’s overall finances, including income and expenditure. If we’re comfortable with sufficient surplus income, we will use this to top up the rental calculation in order to increase the amount that can be borrowed.”
