Barclays refuses to offer buy-to-let borrowers a payment holiday

Landlords who have a buy-to-let mortgage with Barclays will not be offered a repayment holiday, despite government guidance to offer borrowers a payment referral of up to three months as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bank says that the support is primarily available to residential mortgage borrowers, with buy-to-let landlords not considered to be a priority.

A spokesperson for Barclays said: “This is an unprecedented and ever-changing situation, we are constantly reviewing how we best support all of our customers and are working on an appropriate solution and will provide an update later this week.”
