For landlords looking for 75% LTV products, Paragon offers a rate of 3.35% on a two-year fixed rate and two five-year choices are offered at 3.74% and 4.2% respectively, both with £350 cashback.

Two-year mortgages incur a 1% fee and 2% is charged on five-year deals.

A free valuation is included with these products.

Moray Hulme, director of mortgage sales at Paragon, said: “We are pleased to have re-entered the student market, offering intermediaries some strong products that we feel are well suited to meet the robust demand we are currently experiencing.

“We wanted clarity on whether students would return for the 2020/21 academic year, which they have done even if lectures are being held remotely.”
