The Mortgage Lender has reduced its two-year residential fixed rates to include a market-leading 2.65 per cent initial rate for mortgages up to 70 per cent loan to value.
The reductions apply to whole of market products, including Help to Buy, the £750 cashback and the L&G Mortgage Club exclusive, across its RL 1 and 2 categories from 70 per cent loan to value up to 85 per cent loan to value.
The Mortgage Lender deputy chief executive Peter Beaumont said: “At The Mortgage Lender we love to lend and our reduced rates on RL1 and 2 make it easier for brokers to recommend a competitive rate for their customers alongside a pragmatic approach to underwriting which recognises that life doesn’t always move in a straight line.”
