Yorkshire Bank announces fee free mortgages for first time buyers

16th May 2012

First Time Buyers mortgage rates reduced for 90% and 95% loans

Yorkshire Bank has launched a fee free mortgage offer* for first time buyers.

The fee free offer will mean a saving of £599 for those taking a 95% or 90% loan-to-value mortgage.

The Bank remains committed to helping potential homeowners take the first step onto the property ladder and has also reduced its rates for first time buyer mortgages to 5.99% for a 95% loan-to-value mortgage and 4.99% for a 90% mortgage.

In addition, the fee free first time buyer mortgages are available with Yorkshire Bank’s insurance with a 5% introductory discount* and two year* no claims discount of 10%. There are no valuation fees when using the Bank’s appointed panel of valuers.

The Bank currently offers a three year rate fixed at 5.99% for buyers with a 5% deposit and a three year fixed rate at 4.99% for buyers with a 10% deposit. First time buyers with larger deposits will also be able to take advantage of the fee free offer across a range of fixed and offset residential mortgages.
