Vernon Building Society launches cheapest 90 per cent mortgage
Vernon Building Society has released a 90 per cent loan to value (LTV) two-year discounted mortgage set at 2.35 per cent for all borrowers.
The deal is currently the lowest price on the market for a 90 per cent loan to value mortgage.
This is discounted 2.85 per cent from the mutual’s standard variable rate (SVR) of 5.2 per cent. Early repayment charges apply for the discounted period.
The loan size offered by the Vernon ranges from between £150,000 and £300,000. It is available both direct and through brokers and has a £999 fee.
The mortgage is not restricted to the mutual’s local area. All its broker-facing products are now nationally available.
First-time buyers, remortgagors and homeowners can apply for the product.
Brendan Crowshaw, head of mortgage and savings distribution at Vernon Building Society, said: “We know that 90 per cent LTV mortgages are in demand, not just from first-time buyers but also homeowners making that next step or remortgaging, so we’re pleased to support this sector.
“Our new 90 per cent LTV discounted mortgage has a low interest rate of 2.35 per cent and borrowers can apply for the mortgage over the phone, in branch or via a mortgage broker.”
