Platform has revealed a new range of four year fixed rate buy-to-let mortgages to replace its outgoing three year deals.

A deal available to borrowers with a 40% deposit (60% loan to value) at 5.49% catches the eye.

It is the best four year deal in its field in terms of rate alone, but the fee of £2,135 is higher than that of its rival lender in the market.

Very much a 'no frills' deal, it at least gives borrowers another option over the four year term, while further deals are offered at 65% and 70% loan to value, albeit with higher rates.

As these buy-to-let deals are only available to brokers, you won't be able to approach Platform direct.

However, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are still a well deserved reward.
