A new mortgage with cashback has been added to Leeds Building Society’s higher LTV (loan to value) range.
The two year fixed rate deal of 5.69% is available up to 95% LTV and comes with £250 cashback and a free standard valuation. There is no completion fee.
“Borrowers with smaller deposits remain a key focus for us, as we seek to deliver on our purpose to put home ownership within reach of more people,” said Jonathan Thompson, Senior Mortgage Manager at Leeds Building Society.
“We’re seeing strong demand for fixed rate higher-LTV mortgages and, with cashback on completion, we expect this latest deal to appeal particularly to first time buyers.
“This type of ‘traditional’ mortgage is just one of the options we offer for home buyers with smaller deposits, alongside affordable housing schemes such as Shared Ownership, and we’re always seeking new ways to support routes into home ownership.
“We understand building up a deposit is often the biggest challenge facing those wanting to step onto the housing ladder. To help with that, in the spring we launched Home Deposit Saver, a regular savings account which pays the saver an extra £500 when they receive their mortgage offer from the Society.
“And we’re already seeing the benefits for mortgage applicants who are making use of Experian Boost.
“Earlier this month we became the first UK lender to partner up with Experian for this free service, which takes account of an applicant’s regular current account payments when assessing their credit score, providing more data about their repayment habits and potentially boosting their score.”
