About Vida Home Loans

Those who want excellence in their property finance in the UK choose Vida Homeloans and our magnificent mortgage offers.

We are a modern mortgage lender for non-high street cases, and use the latest technology to constantly improve our efficiency and reliability. Our experienced mortgage team is backed by much private equity and does not use legacy processes or systems, but rather designs everything.

Our commitment to payment transparency

In cooperation with the Council of Mortgage Lenders and our tariff of mortgage, charges are user-friendly and do not feature many charges and fees that our competitors might levy. This tariff of mortgage charges reflects this initiative's excellent practice principles and is used throughout our industry to improve payment transparency and industry competition for the sake of our customers.

We continually improve our prices

This month, we have overhauled our residential and buy to let product range, so that many of our residential products' rates have lessened by up to 0.35%, and many of our buy to let offers have had their rates reduced by up to 0.50%.

New build houses and flats can receive up to 90% loan-to-value for residential and 85% for buy to let, offering 6 months with an additional 6 months extension available, and accepting a completion certificate instead of a re-inspection. Whereas ex-local authority flats outside of Greater London, for both residential and buy to let, used to have a minimum property value of £125,000, they now can be £80,000. Inside of Greater London, the minimum property value is £200,000.

Vida Home Loans Services

We wish to provide all our loyal customers with the best property and personal loan finance in the UK that we can possibly organise.

Our fee saver range excludes product fees and allows for one free valuation on properties up to £500,000, both for residential and buy to let. The residential fee saver range provides free standard legal on remortgages, and buy to let fee saver only asks for a £200 contribution.

Better buy to let payments with us

Our buy to let products include 2-year fixed period with only a 3.14% rate and a 5-year fixed period with only a 3.59% rate. We can now provide 85% loan-to-value for loans up to £250,000 for properties outside the M25, but not for first-time landlords or buyers. Expatriate buy to let applicants who are non-EEA residents can now receive up to 75%, no longer 65%, loan-to-value, though Australian expats receive up to 60% loan-to-value.

Flexibility in our buy to let offers

With us, buy to let houses of multiple occupancies can have up to 8 bedrooms and multi-unit blocks can have up to 5 units. In both cases, you require only 1 year's landlord experience and only a minimum 130% rental cover. Older and retired landlords receive an interest-only deal with up to 85% loan-to-value, a minimum age of 95 in the case of limited companies for your term's end, and no minimum income restriction.

Trading limited companies just need to present 1 year's accounts, and SPVs do not require a floating charge. In terms of challenging credit, we allow for small or life events, 2 CCJs, 2 missed mortgages, and up to 70% loan-to-value.
