Shared equity mortgages
The lender is also introducing new rates for home movers and first-time buyers looking to purchase through shared equity.
The society is reducing rates by up to 0.34% on selected two and five-year fixed rates between 60% and 80% LTV. Rates start from 1.20% for two-year fixed mortgages and 1.30% for the five-year fixed products.
