Mortgages for Business has made its Buy To Let app available to Android users.
The app, which is free to download was previously only available on iOS.
Commenting on the launch, managing director, David Whittaker said:
“The number of clients who use Android to access MFB online has jumped from just under 2% to nearly a quarter in the three years since we originally launched the app solely for iOS. Clearly the time is now right to cater for these clients too.”
The app provides instant access to the latest buy to let rates and allows users to search for mortgages that match their specific circumstances and borrowing requirements.
In particular, the advanced search function allows users to find products for limited company applicants and HMOs.
Search results provide detailed financial summaries of each buy to let mortgage including the lender’s maximum loan to value, monthly interest only or repayment cost, rental requirements and arrangement fees.
Users can also email themselves quotes for specific products.
The handy portfolio manager function has also been improved.
Previously property details were held on the device but users can now save the information to a secure server, allowing them to access the information across multiple devices.
Buy To Let is still available on iOS and an updated version to match Android is due to be released pending Apple’s approval any day now.
To date Buy To Let for iOS has been downloaded 7,220 times since it was first launched in September 2012.
Buy To Let for Androids can be downloaded free of charge at the Google Play store.
