Your lending partner
We believe true partnerships are about people not machines
From humble beginnings
We got into this business because we thought buy-to-let lending could be better for brokers, borrowers and investors.
That led us, in 2014, to making our very first loan: a three-bedroom house in Brighton. We’ve come a long way since then. In the years since, we’ve helped more than 2,000 landlords find the funding they need.
Today our goal is to become the go-to funding partner for buy-to-let. And we like to think we’re well on our way.
We’ve come a long way
We’re building a business we’re all proud to be a part of. We’ve loved the journey so far but there’s still so much more we can do.

We do things a little differently at Landbay
We’re partners to brokers
We’re proud of being better for brokers than anyone else. What they need, we deliver.
We’re partners to each other
We’re building a business we’re all proud to be a part of, where every voice is heard, and everyone is invested in being a true partner.
We think good enough, isn’t
We invest to be the best. Our old broker portal was good enough but that was never going to be enough for us, so we built a new one.
Doing well and doing good
At Landbay everyone plays a part. Our ESG forum brings together people from across our business to help us drive the ESG agenda.
